    Absolutely t! best~

    Jackie-Sue and her staff were absolutely wonderful to work with in planning our wedding cake and the cake for the grandchildren's "cake pull"! We couldn't have been happier and everyone raved about the design as well as how delightful the cakes tasted!

    Great value!

    Gambino's did a three tier naked cake for us, plus a confetti and red velvet cake for each side to add some other options. All of the cakes were delicious! And working with the team there was very easy, including delivery on the day of and scheduling a tasting in the middle of a pandemic. Thanks for making the wedding cake process so easy!

    Absolutely stunning and delicious!

    We LOVED working with Gambino's Bakery. When we initially went for tasting, the workers were all incredibly sweet and helped us to decide on exactly what we wanted. They even let us take home our left overs which were three small cakes that we could let our family and friends taste as well! Unfortunately, we had to postpone our wedding from May 30 until October 10 due to the coronavirus. Gambino's Bakery was super understanding and put us down for our new date. Come wedding week, Hurricane Delta decided to rip through Louisiana on the Friday and our wedding was the Saturday. Eli stayed in touch with my mother-in-law through out the week and assured her that he would go to the bakery himself on Friday to make the cake. So sweet! On the day of the wedding, we were told that our reception would not be able to take place due to the town being put under an 8PM curfew. My mother-in-law spoke with Eli on the Saturday 5 hours before the wedding to explain the situation. Again, Eli was super understanding and assured her that he would be there Sunday morning to drop off our cake. Not only did he drop off the cake but he decorated our cake with the flowers from our florist! Not only was our cake beautiful but it tasted just as amazing. We went with an almond cake with cream cheese filling and vanilla custard filling in the tiers. We love Gambino's Bakery and would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone. Genuine and kind-hearted people with an amazing business.

    Most people are familiar with Gambinos for their famous King Cakes but they also do wedding cakes. Gambinos did a great job with our almond and buttercream two tier wedding cake. They provided tasting samples which helped us to pick flavors and recommended sizes based on our guest count. The cake turned out beautifully and many guests remarked that it was the best tasting wedding cake they ever had. We highly recommend Gambino's for any of your bakery needs.

    Taco 'bout an amazing bakery!

    Gambino's Bakery did both our Groom's cake and dessert table for our wedding. Our wedding was a destination wedding, so I communicated with Gambino's only through phone and email. They were super quick to respond and always very informative.

    I surprised my husband with a Groom's cake... and let's just say that the cake that Gambino's Bakery designed stole the show. Several months before the wedding, I asked if they could make my husband a Taco Bell cake (that's his favorite place to eat) and sent them several inspiration pictures. It was a huge hit. All of the vendors were crazy about it...even Taco Bell commented about the cake. We can't thank you enough! We highly recommend.

    Can’t find a better wedding cake!

    I’ve had cakes from here before and from other bakeries in the Baton Rouge area, and I would still pick Gambinos EVERY SINGLE TIME! Everyone raved about how pretty our cake was and how great it tasted, saying it was the best the ever tasted! They do not disappoint!!

    Amazing cakes!

    We loved our wedding cakes from Gambino's! The cake tasting experience was very enjoyable and easy. They took the time to go over all the options and details. I called the bakery as we got closer to make some tweaks, and they confirmed all the details again with me to ensure we had it all correct. We picked the yellow wedding cake with buttercream frosting and raspberry filling. It was delicious! We also got a king cake tower as our grooms cake with cream cheese filling. Both cakes were a big hit! The designs were beautiful and exactly what we wanted.

    Wedding cake

    Gambino’s was so easy to work with and we absolutely loved the 5 tier cake that they made for our wedding. It was beautiful and tasted wonderful. They worked with my florist and day of coordinator to decorate each tier with fresh flowers. Overall, the planning process and day of were stress free. Definitely recommend them for any major events!

    The best!!!

    Gambinos made the most amazing cake for our wedding. I cannot recommend them enough. We went to several other places for tasting, and there is no comparison. We had a 2 layer cake, with chocolate cake and strawberry filling for one layer and butter cake with pineapple filling for the other layer. The butter cake with pineapple filling was out of this world, it went so fast! The chocolate with strawberry filling was also amazing. They were so easy to work with. I showed them a few inspiration photos and they created such a beautiful cake. I got so many complements on it.

    Parents' 50th Anniversary party.

    I hosted a destination 50th anniversary party for my folks in New Orleans and needed a reliable source for their cake. I wanted it to be somewhat like what they had at their wedding 50 years ago, but it also had to be delicious! Gambinos was responsive and delivered a fantastic looking cake and it was also delish! (You know it's good when you catch the catering staff snagging pieces behind the bar after the guests have all been fed, and they tell you it's fantastic!). I went with traditional buttercream silver cake, with lemon in one tier and raspberry in the other. They also provided a separate Doberge cake and decorated it as well. 5 stars!

    I worked with Jackie Sue and Gambino's for my wedding cake on advice of a newlywed friend and could not be happier with their result. Whenever we talk about our wedding with anyone who was there, they will almost always bring up how good our cake was. Jackie was really helpful and fast with getting back to us, and also coordinating details. Our cake was delicious and beautiful and everything we wanted. Thank you so much.
