Gambino\'s Bakery was very fun to work with. The owner Paul was hilarious and friendly but payed close attention to detail. I told him a general idea for my groom cake and he took my idea and took it to another level. At least 40 people at the wedding told me my king cake design was the best groom cake they\'ve seen. All of the guests told me how good it was with double filled cream cheese with pecans. \r\n\r\nMy wife wedding cake was elegant and classy. The design was flawless, looked enormous, and the craftsmanship of the small details made the cake amazing. Not to mention the taste, Oh My Lord, the cake was the best we\'ve ever had. No other bakery in town can compete with the taste, I mean nobody. I seen some family members get 2 and 3 plates full of wedding cake and king cake, lol. Thank God they had a little left over so we can enjoy the cake in the next few days.\r\n\r\n I highly recommend Gambino\'s Bakery on Perkins Road. I will use no other vendor to design any cake design UNLESS it\'s Gambino\'s Bakery, NO exceptions. Cakes arrived early and made beautiful presentations which the photographers commented on. Thanks for making our wedding special, elegant, and adding memories we\'ll never forget.

Gambino's Bakery is truly one of, if not the best bakery in the New Orleans area. They did an absolutely wonderful job on our wedding cake and Groom's cake. Jackie Sue is great to work with and took the time to make sure our cakes turned out just how we wanted - and I have to say, my cake was even more beautiful than I had imagined! The staff at Gambino's is very talented. We received numerous compliments on the quality, presentation and taste of both of the cakes! I attended multiple bridal shows and always returned to the Gambino's table for seconds because their cakes were the most delicious! I am very appreciative of the excellent service they provided us and recommend this bakery to everyone!

You can spend twice as much but you will never have a cake as good as the one from Gambino's. It was delicious and JackieSue was very easy to work with. She took a very hands on approach and even helped us incorporate a design from a photo. The cakes on display don't even give a hint at what they can do. This is the third wedding cake that they have made for our family and each was great.

Gambino's Bakery of Lafayette gave me my perfect wedding cakes. I ordered a three tiered Super Mario themed bridal cake and an original NES controller themed groom's cake. They were both absolutely gorgeous. Every guest LOVED the detail put into the design. The cakes were delicious and very reasonably priced. Gambino's even delivered almost 40 miles away. My friend also used Gambino's a month before for her own (more traditional) wedding cake and groom's cake, and I have to say those were amazing too. I would definitely recommend Gambino's to anyone. They basically took a picture I found and turned it into reality. Fantastic work! (btw the cream cheese and pecan filling is just scrumptious!!)

I planned my wedding completely long-distance, from Colorado, for a New Orleans wedding. I stumbled upon Gambino's and heard from friends that they have the best cake in town. They were sooo right. We were on a small budget for a small-ish wedding, so we ordered a 14" round instead of a wedding cake, and asked them to add some splashes of color to match our cake topper. When we picked it up on the morning of our wedding, we were so impressed at the size and beauty of the cake. It turned out gorgeous. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, and were very excited for our wedding. Then when the cake cutting came around, our friends and family just demolished the thing - it tasted like heaven (we didn't get fondant - we got buttercream icing with almond cake). Thankfully there was some left over to take on our honeymoon - during the travel catastrophe we experienced, it was awesome to have some Gambino's cake waiting for us in our carry-ons. I highly recommend using them for your wedding.

Gambino's is the premier bakery in the New Olreans area. We have bought cakes from them for years. When my daughter moved her wedding to New Orleans we knew who to get the wedding cake from. It was the freshest cake you ever ate. It was a Doberge cake which is simply delicious. It was such a beautiful cake as well. I would recommend this bakery to anyone in the area.

When we ordered our wedding cake from Gambino's, we had something special in mind. We did not have a lot of extra funds, but we were able to get our favorite comics (Calvin and Hobbes) printed all over both tiers, and supply our own action figures for the top. They were so helpful, professional, and flexible, which helped at that hectic time. Also, my husband was so impressed with how delicious the cake was, he wants to get another one for our anniversary.

I waited until the last minute to put in an order for my cake, about a week before the wedding, and they were able to make it in time. The price was very good and the cake was beautiful and it was the best cake i had ever eaten.

Wedding cake and grooms cake were both delicious. The grooms cake did have the wrong shade of colors.

Gambino's did a wonderful job on our wedding cake & groom's cake. Jackie Sue worked with us to customize each layer of the cake exactly how we wanted it. And the groom's cake was pretty tricky, but they made a Big Lebowski cake look really great! We got a lot of positive feedback on both cakes! The price was on the lower end of the cake vendors we researched, and considering the high quality of the service, I'd say we got a pretty darn good deal!

Gambino's did our wedding cake and groom's cake. They made exactly what we wanted for both cakes. (We altered the groom's cake a bit cased on an example they had, and it came out the way we had envisioned it.) I went to several bridal shows, and Gambino's tasted consistently good for the traditional wedding cake flavor we wanted. It tasted even better at the wedding!

The wedding venue staff was unable to set-up the actual table before Gambino's arrived to deliver the bride's cake (almond cake with strawberry cream cheese filling). Instead of waiting until the table was set-up (they technically had a two hour delivery window), they just left the cake sitting on another table and told us that we would have to move it ourselves and left the premises. When I found out about this, I went downstairs to see if I could help, only to discover that the icing on the middle tier was torn and you could see the cake inside, and some of the decorations were not placed as we discussed in our consultation. I called them in a panic (after all, this WAS the day of my wedding); they were very nice and apologetic, and they came right back over and picked it up. I was worried that they wouldn't make it back in time, but they made it! Although there were a few glitches with my wedding cake, the flavor was like no other and well worth the wait.

We allow a 2 hour delivery window for all our cakes meaning we will deliver it sometime between that window. Hope everything was absolutely wonderful at the wedding! Congratulations again:)

We chose Gambino's Bakery in Baton Rouge off Goodwood because as soon as we came in Ashley was very kind to us. She went over cake flavors, and even let us taste the cakes, fillings, and icing right then and there without even booking with her! She was very sweet and the cake was delicious, so we told her exactly what we wanted and paid everything off on our first visit. This was about 10 months before our wedding, so it felt good to be done with our cake. Once it got closer to the wedding date, about 6 months out. Our wedding coordinator mentioned that Gambino's was know for being late to the wedding to set everything up. I was terrified and brought this up to Ashley when I brought my pulls to her the week before the wedding. She was a little defensive once I brought it up, and even mentioned she wanted to add an additional charge because the delivery time (that we had already agreed on and finalized) was after 6pm and they would be closed. I refused for obvious reasons. I called my wedding coordinator for my venue and she handled everything. On the day of the cakes showed up on time and were delicious! We had tons of compliments! Overall they cakes looked and tasted amazing and that's all that mattered, but the staff needs to be more professional.

Gambino's has the best cake in the New Orleans Area, hands down. I would not hesitate to work with them again. They did an incredible groom's cake that made my husband very happy - it was a cake design that looked difficult to reproduce, but it was very very well done.

Things to look out for - our cake top was a little crooked. I know New Orleans can be hot and occasionally cause the fondant to melt, but this day was unusually cool and this should not have happened. Also, we paid a high fee to have gummy paste flowers created, and they were supposed to have this translucent peachy color, but in the end they opted to choose bright pink solid colored flowers for the top. And that's OK, the cake was still beautiful, but I would just expect that the cake might not come out exactly as you described it.

Setting an appointment to meet with a baker was easy. I even brought a picture (that they can keep on file with them) of how i wanted my wedding cake to be designed. They had my cake delivered on time. My only compliant was that the could have done the design neater. When i compared the picture to their work, it didn't compare. I was a little disappointed. Other than that, it was moist and tasted good.
