Wedding Pie!

Reviewed on 3/26/2015

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 would highly recommend Gambinos to anyone!

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!

Gambino's exceeded all of my expectations. They were so pleasant and easy to work with when designing our wedding cake.They were open to anything I wanted as far as design goes, and our cake came out absolutely stunning. We received so many compliments on how delicious and moist... Read More our cake was from several guests. My husband also ordered his grooms cake from here and we were BLOWN AWAY. He found a picture online of a crawfish pot that was half LSU/half Saints design. When we saw the cake at the reception, we could not believe our eyes-it looked like something you see in a magazine! They even added some cute touches to the crawfish in the pot. We also had a "chocolate table" at our reception with goodies from Gambinos-rum balls, chocolate covered oreos, chocolate covered pretzels, and oreo truffle balls- AMAZING. Everything was so delicious!

Originally from Myrtle Beach, SC, my husband and I recently moved into the area by way of Oregon for work and loved New Orleans so much that we decided to have our wedding here. All the typical stress that comes from planning a wedding was with me everyday, not to mention our... Read More nearest family members were 13hrs away and we had no familiarity with the area, local vendors, etc. When it came to our cake, I had some serious standards. I have some serious bakers in from both sides of my family. My Italian Grandmother is known for her Italian cookies and pastries and my N'Ma-legend has it- would make FROM SCRATCH pies and cobblers every Sunday to feed the neighborhood! Needless to say, I wanted a wedding cake that tasted just like grandma made it. I when I walked into Gambino's sure enough there were 5 little ladies baking away! :) The cake and fillings had so much flavor and were so moist that it tasted as if each slice was made individually. I couldn't have been happier and I encourage everyone to check out the amazing selection they have over there. You WON'T be disappointed.

My husband and I could not have chose a better bakery for our wedding day. Neither one of us had never had Gambinos and we are both from Louisiana. I received a really awesome review from a fellow Gambino bride and how she fell madly in love with her cakes. We scheduled a cake... Read More testing with Gambinos in Lafayette and that was the only one we scheduled. We were so impressed by just the cake testing we had for breakfast. :) We ordered yellow cakes for our day however there are plenty choices to choose from. My cake was a 3 tier with cream cheese and pecan for one tier, rasberry on the other tier and lemon for the last tier. My husband's cake was lemon and pineapple. Our favorite was the cream cheese and pecan. We thought it was amazing and so did everyone else who called us days after the wedding asking where did we order our cake from. All of the workers were very helpful and our cake was designed just like we wanted it. Being that my husband is Active Duty military we really appreciated that Gambinos honors our soldiers. We no longer reside in the south, however I am from Lafayette and will make a visit to Gambinos every time we visit.

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.

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!
