My passion for cake decorating first came to light when I was 17 years old. I set out on this beautiful path and it has given me great satisfaction ever since. My family has a long tradition of pastry making. Aunts and cousins have exchanged recipes for generations. As a small child, I had the privilege of watching my mother decorate cakes and was given the opportunity to learn skills enabling me to craft sugar into beautiful objects.

I have studied this art form in New York, London, Toronto, Buenos Aires and Caracas. I have taken courses with highly specialized and creative people who have left a great impression on me and have concentrated my constant desire to excel. On five different occasions, I have participated in The Salon of Culinary Art of New York and have won two first prizes, two second and one third place. These prizes, along with publications in specialized magazines, have given me the enthusiasm to keep going.

I specially enjoy creating a new project and drawing the design. Before setting the idea down on paper, I bear in mind the occasion for which the cake has been requested, as well as the themes and motifs desired. My cakes are original creations that are hand crafted & hand painted to the clients specifications.

Contact me for any comment and question or visit me in my Bakery Boutique in Mountain Brook, Alabama. I will be glad to help you.

My husband and I emailed a picture of what we wanted the bride's cake to look like. The cake that was delivered looked nothing like the picture we sent. The cakes were late and we did not get a box for the top tier or any kind to transport left overs. Our top tier is now ruined and when I tried to call during business hours, no one answers nor do they return calls. The grooms cake was also a disaster as we paid extra for decor and did not receive the decor. I will never use Gia's again! I advise the same for anyone else!!!!

Gia's Cakes responded with the following comments:

The cake that we made for Aimee and Brian was made fresh, from scratch, according to her instructions and as approved by her in her signed contract dated 3/11/2014. The design was based off of inspiration from pictures sent via e-mail. We even confirmed the color the week of the wedding. We always specify we do not copy other cake artistry. The cake delivery was set at 1:00PM and we arrived 5 minutes after the agreed time. The whole staff at Gia’s Cakes was very disheartened by hearing all the complaints from even before they step foot into the venue. We never discussed the top would be saved, but we did have a box waiting in the car to be brought into the venue; however, the pastry chef was in such distress after the way she was treated upon delivery she did not bring it back inside. We talked numerous times to set-up an appointment, and we did not receive any call during business hours. Unfortunately, there are times that a customer is not satisfied with anything you do despite your best efforts. This is such a case.

I LOVED having Gia's Cakes do our wedding cake! Everyone loved it and it was absolutely gorgeous! It was also a nice touch how Gia herself came to deliver the cake, not everyone does that. I got a chance to come out and see the cake while she was there and she made me feel so special and beautiful as she stopped what she was doing to talk to me for a second.

Gia's is a personal and professional company. I would recommend her to anyone!

Gia was wonderful to work with! Her flavor choices were amazing as I was not looking for a plain cake. I went with lemon lavender cake and raspberry buttercream with a champagne fondant. It was delicious! Her assistants called and kept me up to date with everything and were very nice and always professional. I recommend working with Gia to everyone!

We met with Gia and she was awesome! I showed her a picture of what I wanted and our cake came out better than I expected! She also had a lot of great flavor choices. We ended up picking the chai tea cake and passion fruit buttercream icing. The taste was amazing and everyone said they loved it! Thank you Gia!!

I absolutely loved working with Gia's for our wedding! Both Gia and her staff understood my vision completely and were such a delight to work with. Both my groom and I were so pleased with how our cakes turned out- and they are still the talk of our wedding guests! I even got an email from the events coordinator at the club saying that it was the most beautiful cake she had ever seen and I completely agree!
