My experience from the tasting to the wedding itself was fantastic. The owner Gerardo is a great and funny guy. He was awesome to work with. The cake flavors they have were delicious. We ended up picking 3 for our wedding cake. They have the BEST prices around and it includes design which was great. We had to provide fresh flowers but they included the ribbon and any design we wanted on the cake. They also include free rental of a cake stand with a deposit so they know you will bring it back. This is a bakery I will refer people to for every event. Great staff and delicious cakes and pastries.

Our cake was fantastic! We had two meetings with Gerardo himself before the wedding. Free cake sampling and many designs and ideas to choose from.

The desserts we ordered from Gerardo's were delicious, but not what we had ordered. Prior to our event, the manager at Gerardo's took our order for platters of small cannolis, with a few other types of desserts. What we received were all other kinds of desserts, with very few cannolis. Based on the delivery time/set-up, I didn't know about this until the desserts were served. While the food was great, I wouldn't recommend Gerard's if you have a specific food in mind.

We got a small wedding cake as well as cupcakes for our September wedding from Gerardo's Bakery. We met with Gerardo in person prior to and were so struck by how (1) delicious all of the cakes were that we tried and (2) the professionalism of the whole business in general. Gerardo himself was the person we dealt with and he was quick to respond. The value was unreal and it was by far the best cake that we tried, as well as the least expensive. You will not be disappointed by Gerardo and his delicious cakes!

Gerardo met with us twice and went above and beyond. Our cake was so beautiful. I almost didn't even want to cut it! He delivered the cake to our venue himself. The cake was so delicious. All my guests asked where the cake came from!

If you are in the greater Metrowest area, go to Gerardo's Italian Bakery for your wedding cake. Simply put, there is no better value for the money, and the cake tastes absolutely amazing.

First off, we do not care much for fondant because we like cake for cake, not for its look. Sure some cakes look stunning and only fondant can do that, but at the end of the day, we all want to enjoy the flavor of our cake. To our surprise, Gerardo himself believes the same thing. We met with Gerardo once when we first were engaged and talked through the entire process: He does not believe in fondant (check), makes cakes that taste great (check), never freezes cakes (check), and makes you a new mini one a year later (check), so naturally we booked him.

It was kind of odd that we then did not see him until about a month before the wedding, but I guess we never really had to! They bake your cake that week, so he did not need to know the flavor or design until about 2 weeks before the wedding. We brought him 3-4 pictures and a frankensteined image of what we wanted it to look like, and it turned out pretty good. The cake tasted amazing!

His prices are very fair, and he really was a pleasure to work with.

Gerardo's did our wedding cake for our August 2015 wedding and it was incredible! I actually don't even like cake so when we went for our tasting, I didn't expect to love anything. But their strawberry-ricotta filling is UNREAL. Very light, not too sweet and had the amount of fruit. We got to try 8 (!!) of their cake flavors and they were delightful. We decided on a white cake, with the strawberry-ricotta filling and their standard frosting, which is like a cross between a buttercream/whipped cream and so yummy. We met with Gerardo himself several times and this man is a true gentleman and a master of his craft. He was very easy to work with, so flexible! We met within a week of the wedding to finalize #s and design. We asked him to decorate the cake with fresh seasonal fruit instead of flowers, and also add a hint of lemon flavor to the cake and he was more than happy to oblige. He also suggested a very light lemon-glaze for the fruit on top of the cake.

I can't comment on the wedding cake cost since it was included in our per-person package from our venue (Wachusett Village Inn), but when we purchased several cookies/bakery items, the costs were very reasonable.

They delivered the cake to our venue the day-of, and it looked so beautiful! The fruit looked wonderful and when it came time to eat, we were blown away by how awesome it tasted! So many of our guests commented on how delicious it was. We are so excited to get our cake topper (complimentary!) for our 1-year anniversary, because Gerardo is aghast at eating frozen wedding cake. I will definitely be ordering special occasion cakes from them again!!!
