Our venue allowed us to choose between 3 bakerys and we chose Gerardo's. The process was actually a lot easier than I thought it would be. At the initial meeting we were allowed to try samples of maybe 10 different cakes and any leftovers we could bring home. We set up our next meeting about 3-4 weeks before our wedding. We went in with the flavor we wanted and I brought a picture of a cake design I liked. I design I gave was not going to be fully possible as they don't work with fondant which is much easier to manuever into whatever you want they use actual frosting. Gerardo was able to make a few changes and suggestions on how to get a similar effect. The day of our wedding the cake came out great similar to the design I had showed but not exactly. I didn't get to eat more than a bite of cake but I did hear compliments about how good it was. The best part is we didn't have to freeze the top layer because Gerardo's remakes the top layer of your cake for your one year anniversary! Overall we had a great experience and the final product looked good and tasted even better!

FANTASTIC!!! Gerardo himself is the one who does everything having to do with the wedding cakes. He's very methodical and insanely organized- his tasting times are planned down to the minute. If he's included in a package with a venue, as he was with mine, there's no restrictions on the type of design, fillings, anything. You can decide what you want from their entire book of possibilities just like any other bride could without a package holding you back.
The cake itself was delicious and beautiful! Everyone at the reception raved about it.
We had a slightly strange situation with the hotel where the wedding was- they threw out the leftover cake and the bride & groom didn't get to have any. I had specifically arranged with them ahead of time for cake to be sent to our hotel room once it was sliced so when I asked the hotel if they could do something to make up for their mistake they had me contact Gerardo directly to figure something out. Gerardo made us a 7" ornately decorated and delicious top layer of the cake in whichever flavor we wanted. NO CHARGE to us or to the hotel. And he had it done two days after I spoke with him about it.
He goes above and beyond to make sure his brides are happy... even after the wedding!
He has a sterling reputation for very good reasons. I would recommend him to everyone for any bakery needs.

Wonderful. Cake was baked fresh and never frozen. Gerardo was very upfront on pricing (which was very reasonable), didn't nickel and dime us, gave us plenty of flavors to sample, and decorated the cake exactly as we wanted. I don't know who at Gerardo's delivered the cake the morning of our wedding, but the owner at the reception site commented on how friendly he was. The "cherry on top" is that we didn't need to save our top layer and freeze it for our 1 year anniversary...we just need to call Gerardo's a year after our wedding and they'll bake us a fresh cake for our anniversary (as Gerardo told us, "You don't want to eat an old, frozen cake, do you?").

You can't go wrong with a wedding cake from Gerardo's! You get to meet with Gerardo himself and sample their top filling flavors. When it came time to design our cake, Gerardo helped us come up with a design efficiently and offered helpful suggestions and photos of other cakes to give us ideas. His pricing is very reasonable as well as so simple to follow, which we really liked compared to other bakers we visited. The cake is airy and moist, and the fillings are incredible, without being overly sweet. Can't wait for our complimentary cake on our first anniversary!

Gerardo's bakery created the most perfect wedding cake for our wedding. Gerry is amazing, so kind and sweet. He was at first concerned with my vision, but he made it happen for me and he did so perfectly. The cake was second to none and all of my guests are still talking about the cake from Gerardo's. I highly recommend Gerardo's bakery-its simply delicious!

Gerardo made our wedding cake and I must say it was delicious!! The cake came out beautiful as well. The cake tasting was great and the quality of the product was amazing. We had 155 people at our wedding and got a 3 tiered cake. The only small issue was that we had asked for 3 different flavors, with the top small tier being lemon...but the top tier was the same as the second tier (chocolate) Not a big deal, it was still yummy and people loved it. I'm not a cake fan in general so I am tough to please when it comes to dessert but this was everything I could have hoped for. And for the price, you really can't beat it.

Our cake was so unbelievably delicious- everyone told us so. Gerardo was so helpful- we sat down with him, and he patiently walked us through all of our options and answered our many questions. We had tried his carrot cake in the bakery before and knew we had to have that on our big day. We also wanted the traditional Italian wedding cake for those guests who wanted something different. He worked with us to produce a gorgeous cake that had several tiers of each layer. Gerardo also will bake you a fresh cake for your 1 year anniversary so you don't have to a 1 year old frozen cake...we loved that touch.

Also, order some cannolis to go with your cake! We had tried some at his store and ordered 4 dozen...they were gone before we even knew it (thank goodness our wedding coordinator grabbed us a few to eat). Yummy!

We used Gerardo's for our wedding cake and favors a couple of weeks ago and they were fantastic! We first met with Gerardo to have a tasting for the cake, you try several different types of cake and he has books with pictures of cakes that he has done. His cakes are fantastic and you honestly cannot beat his price! We absolutely loved the design of the cake and our guests raved about how tasty it was. Gerardo also provided the favors for our wedding which were mini whoopie pies - everyone loved them! If you're getting married anywhere near West Boylston (or far - he delivers!) definitely check out Gerardo's, it is well worth it!

Gerardo was so friendly and easy to work with... and his cakes are delicious!! We got the traditional Italian wedding cake with the cannoli and strawberry filling and it was amazing. I moved to Maryland while planning my wedding so my mother met with him for the design appointment and he made it so easy. The cake was beautiful and Gerardo granted me my one special request... a hidden Mickey on my cake!!!

Is there anywhere else to get a wedding cake?!

I've long been a fan of Gerardo's cakes and pastries, so I knew it was where I wanted to get our wedding cake from. We met with Gerardo himself, who is delightful, to plan our cake. We were offered a HUGE sample cake with about 8 different slices of cake varieties to help us decide on a flavor, filling and frosting. We chose 3 flavors of cupcakes and a small cake topper on a round display stand. The price was half of what any other vendor charges and the quality superior!

They don't freeze their cakes, all are made fresh the day before. We actually met again with Gerardo a few weeks before the wedding for final choices. It was delivered to our venue and the display was beautiful. Our guests loved the choices they had with the different flavors and that they could have more than one!

The only challenge I found was the times Gerardo is available to meet with couples as they didn't always fit with my work schedule and weekend appointments are limited as is my weekend availability. In the end, it worked out just fine.

If you want excellent cake with excellent service at an unbeatable price, Gerardo's is the place!

Gerado's made me a delicious wedding cake!

They made the process very easy and actually fun! We got to taste every flavor they made, (we chose traditional Italian wedding) and let us pick the exact design we wanted. Cake was DELICIOUS and we got many compliments from our guests.

As a bonus, we did''t have to freeze the top layer of our cake for our anniversary because they provide a free mini cake to us on our one year!

They are friendly, low-priced, and make beautifully delicious cake!

Highly recommended!!!

My cake was a complete surprise, I had no idea what it would look like until the day, since I had chosen a hawaiian theme. It turned out beautiful, and although as the bride, I was so busy that I was only able to have a tiny piece, I had nothing but, positive comments about my cake from all of my guests. Very happy, and I can't wait until my anniversary so I can enjoy my free cake to celebrate!!

You CANNOT beat the taste, value and design package for a wedding cake from Gerardo’s Bakery! We could not believe how reasonable Gerardo is with his wedding cakes- they are delicious, and you can pretty much choose any kind of cake, filling or style for a really low rate per slice (we locked into 2011 prices which I believe were $2.75 per slice, with approximately $0.40 extra for mousse/filling per slice…so about $3.15 total per slice!). The cake was fantastic, and I usually don’t eat cake- I ate a ton of the samples we got when we did our cake tasting and the cake at our event! We got the Strawberry Ricotta (the classic Italian wedding cake flavor) for the top and bottom tiers of our cake, with the Raspberry Chambord for the middle layer- delicious. Gerardo is easy to work with- you can go in for your tasting a few months before the wedding, and then do a “final” meeting a month or so before (Gerardo worked with us to combine the two meetings because we were out of state). You can look through a big book that he has of design options, or bring in your own ideas- we were extremely pleased with our cake- a three tiered, ivory frosting, with blue ribbon and gerbera daisies all over- beautiful. Terrific value, for a wonderful product and extremely efficient service!

Gerardo Sarli of Gerardo's Italian Bakery is top notch. He doesn't charge a lot because he knows how much new business he'll get from a taste of his wedding cake. We hardly had any left because people were going back for seconds and thirds. The cake was beautiful and I couldn't wait to taste it! Now I'm counting the days until our 1st anniversary when Gerardo will give us a free top tier ( he says he offers it to brides and grooms so they won't have to freeze it). YUM!

We were very happy with Gerardo's Bakery. Our cake was delicious and beautiful. Gerardo was very pleasant to work with and was willing to work with any budget, which was important to us. Our experience with Gerardo was great, as he had many pictures of cakes to choose from and gave a free tasting of the cake flavors. We picked our design and it came out perfect. Also, I was surprised to see a cake stand at my wedding which Gerardo gave us free of charge to use. It made such a difference and I'm so thankful to him for doing us this favor. We would definitely recommend Gerardo to others and use him again in the future! Thank you!

My husband and I met with Gerardo and were given multiple cake flavors to choose from, and they were all delicious. The flavor we decided to go with was a traditional Italian wedding cake that tasted fabulous. The cake looked beautiful and we couldn't have been more happy with it. The only problem was that Gerardo could be somewhat difficult to get a hold of, but he was very nice when we did speak with him.

Our wedding cake was beautiful and delicious. We meet with Mr. Gerardo twice to do a tasting and then to make our final design selection. We ordered a three tier round, white cake w/fresh strawberry filling, chocolate cake with mascarpone filling, and carrot cake with cream cheese filling. Each layer was absolutely delicious, moist and flavorful. The photo we gave him was matched perfectly and we were so happy on our wedding day!

The cake was delicious. We ordered three different flavors and are excited about getting our anniversary cake. We were very disappointed that they forgot to put our custom cake topper on. We spent $200 on them. Gerardo did reimburse us for the topper, which was very generous, but we had to fight with him a bit to get the cash instead of a $200 gift certificate to his bakeries. Other than that, he was a nice man and great to work with, but still would not recommend him for your wedding.

Cake was a low priority for us and we didn't want to spend a fortune on it. Our planner sent us a few recommendations and we thought the prices were ridiculous. She then found Gerardo's and couldn't believe the prices herself. We loved the tasting (how can cake be bad?) and didn't hesitate to book with them. Gerardo is great to work with and is a pleasure at the meetings. We wanted a very plain, chocolate cake with not a lot of design and it worked out with the toppers we had. We got a ton of compliments on it. We only had a small bite when we fed it to each other, but we had heard from people that there were strawberries inside the cake and we had requested no fruit inside. It didn't matter much afterwards to us, but if you're very picky, double-check with them, I guess. We were satisfied with it and it was delicious. We can't wait to enjoy the top tier next year!

I was referred to this bakery for our wedding cake and would do so in return. Huge plus was that on your 1 year anniversary, they remake the top of you wedding cake FOR FREE! Very classy touch.

I had my wedding done by this bakery. what a disaster. every time i called to confirm my cake gerardo was unavailable, i left countless messages and they finally returned it the day before. My cake not only arrived late, but it was slightly frozen. I was so embaressed, come to find out this happens more than u would think. I found out from a friend the cakes are made way in advance, and not by the owner like he says. The reason why he gives you a free anniversary top is because most bakeries don't charge for the top tier, but gerardo counts it as servings for your guests, so if you wanted to save the top, there wouldn't be any left, it would have been served. The free anniversary cake is a 6" cake that looks nothing like your original cake, and your lucky if it is even the same flavor.

the best cake I have ever tasted...it was tiramisu...I didn't even need to worry about making a cake budget because his prices were so reasonable...Gerardo makes all of the wedding cakes himself and meets with all of the brides 2 times before the big day and he knows his cakes! I almost forgot...Gerardo doesn't believe in anyone eating a cake that is a year old especially not one of his cakes so on your one year wedding anniversary he sends you an exact replica of your cake topper as an anniversary gift from him....so cool!

Gerardo worked with me personally to create the perfect cake for our wedding. He was attentive, creative, and very reasonably priced.

I chose a three-tier cake of traditional Italian white cake with a light cream frosting. I couldn't decide which filling I wanted so Gerardo let me have a different filling in each tier! I chose a design for the decoration of the cake and had to make changes to it at the last minute - Gerardo was completely flexible about the changes, mainly because the bakery makes all their cakes the day of or the day before the event (not a few days to a week before like some bakeries).

Gerardo also says that he doesn't believe in freezing cake - he asks that each customer serve the top layer of their cake at their wedding. A little cliche since the tradition is to eat your top tier on your first anniversary...but Gerardo makes each of his clients a fresh replica of their top tier for their anniversary!

They are very easy to work with and even though it I see it as a big part of the overall day it was nice to know it was something I didn't need to worry about. I will consider them when I need other bakery items.

I had such a great experience with Gerado's Italian Bakery! They have such a variety of cakes to choose from but are also more than willing to accommodate anything you might want. Gerado worked with my vision and make a beautiful 3 tier wedding cake with fondant butterflies. Everyone raved about the cake's beauty and taste. He worked within my budget while still giving me a beautiful cake. This vendor also gives you a FRESH top tier of your cake on your one year anniversary which eliminates having to save it for a year in the freezer at home. They were very accommodating and responsive when I'd call as well as friendly and professional.

Awesome cake for an awesome price. Limited flavors but sufficient for our needs. We also got some pastry trays that were a big hit.

The cake tasting was fun, we had lots of leftovers to share! The cakes were all so delicious it was hard to choose. Ours came out beautiful and tasted wonderful. Gerardo doesn't believe in eating cake that has been frozen for a year, so they make you a small cake for free on your first anniversary... such a nice touch!!
