Wedding Pie!

Gambinos helped us put together a wedding pie table on Pi Day (3.14.15!). From start to finish, they were super to work with. Jackie-Sue helped us with a pie tasting, and was super responsive to all of my questions and ideas over email. They handled our wedding with care, and...

I had a great experience working with Gambino's Bakery. From the moment I walked into Gambino's, everything was so easy. I worked with Mrs. Jackie-Sue, and she was amazing! She listened to all of my ideas and concerns about our wedding cake, and she was very patient with me... Read More which was a big deal because I can be indecisive at times! She also gave me recommendations for what would work best with our cake and design. Mrs. Jackie-Sue helped to customize our wedding cake to be exactly how I wanted it to be. She even sketched out the design to give to the cake designer. She also helped to customize my husband's groom's cake, too. It was a cake they had never done before, and her ideas were awesome. Both of the cakes exceeded our expectations! Our wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, and the groom's cake was a huge hit!! The best part about it all is that once I left the appointment, I did not have to worry about anything else for the cakes. We can't thank Gambino's and Mrs. Jackie-Sue enough. I highly recommend them to anyone for all of your wedding needs! Thank you again Gambino's for everything!

Everything was so delicious!

Fantastic groom's cake

Reviewed on 4/24/2015

We got our groom's cake - a four-tiered king cake - from Gambino's. The king cake was excellent, extremely flavorful and moist. The presentation was festive and eye-catching. Gambino's was a pleasure to work with. I'd definitely use them again for cake needs.

Reviewed on 10/28/2014 julia b

I have been a Gambino's fan for years, always making sure to stop in at least once every time I'm in New Orleans, usually for a King Cake during Mardi Gras or a Doberge cake (just because!). So it was a no-brainer when we decided to do a destination wedding in New Orleans that... Read More we would have a Gambino's wedding cake. Since i was an out-of-town Bride everything was coordinated seamlessly via email including choosing the cake design and flavors. We went with the three-tiered "Southern Oaks" design with different flavors for each tier. It was beautiful and delicious! Gambino's and the venue handled...well handling, delivery, and everything. Not one ounce of stress involved (not even for my Italian mother!) and everything came out perfect. Jackie-sue and the cake team even created a custom groom's cake, the T.A.R.D.I.S. from the TV Show Doctor Who, which turned out so amazingly well, not only was it delicious (chocolate chocolate chocolate!), but it was super tall, and included every detail on the outside of the TARDIS, including the poster and writing. I was ASTOUNDED that it held its form for hours in New Orleans summer humidity. Both cakes were true masterpieces and i would DEFINITELY recommend! Thanks so much to Gambinos!

On a whim, because we were in that part of town, my mom, fiance, and I popped into Gambino's (one of the three contracted companies with our venue) to see about scheduling an appointment to talk about our wedding cake.
