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.

Very solid option for your wedding cakes! We got our groom's cake from Gambino's & asked to make it look like a huge fish! It looked great! The only small issue was when we had to increase the size for the guest count, we were told the fish couldn't be made larger, so a sheet...

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).

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.
