Wow. What a great day topped with a great set of cakes. The team at Gambinos was very accommodating. We brought several different cake pictures for the wedding cake and they reconstructed it to a tee. The business it self was clean which is more than I can say of many other... Read More places we visited. The grooms cake was clean, smooth and cool. All of didn't just look good but was very tasty. At the tasting they offered not only different fillings but different cake types. We asked if they could make us a new cake topper of two bead dogs. They came out just as we had dreamed. I would return to Gambino's for birthdays, anniversary and any other cake needs . 5 Stars are not enough.

I grew up having Gambino’s cakes for my birthday and other special occasions and knew that when it came to our wedding, I wanted to have a Gambino’s cake. But sticking with planning protocol, we lined up a few tastings and wanted to make sure we could get what we wanted within... Read More our budget. Our first stop and last stop was Gambino’s. The cakes are just delicious (we highly recommend the german chocolate cake). Jackie-Sue and the Gambino’s team worked diligently with us to get us what we wanted within our budget and the cake was even more beautiful than we imagined. They even worked with us wanting to make our own cake topper and helped us integrate that into the cake in advance to take it off of our plates. If the cake and service isn’t enough to convince you… walk into Gambino’s and take stock of their years of service sign, which recognizes staff that have been with the bakery for 57 years, 40+ years and 30+ years. Gambino’s staff is family, and you can’t go wrong with letting their family help celebrate the start of your new family.

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.

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.
