Yeah! gluten-free cupcakes finally arrived in Mobile, AL. I spoke with the person behind the counter about my concerns with possible cross-contamination issues. She reassured me that while there are gluten-containing products they bake in their store, they do take every precaution to avoid any cross-contamination with these items. She explained that they use clean utensils and bakeware when preparing gluten free items. She also said that the gluten free cupcakes are prepared first thing in the morning before they bake their regular, gluten-containing ones. Additionally, they put the gluten free cupcakes on their own separate trays and even in a separate display case. She confirmed that they have regular celiac patrons and haven't had any complaints so far. All of which I liked hearing. The gluten free cupcakes are only on Fridays and sell out quick. They try to have two-three varieties from which to choose. I had the chocolate torte. It was delicious and rich. If you need gluten-free cupcakes other than Friday, then you'll need to call a day in advance. There is a 6 cupcake minimum for a special order. So excited to be able to have gluten-free cupcakes now!
My boyfriend recently treated me to a raspberry chocolate cupcake here, and it was YUMMY! a nice little indulgence once in a while, and I didn't get sick. Can't wait to go again!
Has gluten-free Friday cupcakes. Offers custom order gluten-free cakes and cupcakes Monday through Saturday.
Carrot cake cupcake is amazing!! Other favorite is the wedding cake! I have ordered their cakes for my child's birthday and they were perfect!! All of their flavors come in GF. If they don't have your favorite flavor just order it and pick it up the next day.( 24hr notice) Love Love Love this place!! The people are always friendly too!!
The cupcakes here are okay. I had the GF lemonberry and there was way more icing than cupcake. It was overly sweet and just wasn't anything special. Next time, I plan on trying the peanut butter chocolate. It makes me a little nervous that the GF cupcakes are in an open case with the rest of the gluten cupcakes. My friend got a gluten cupcake and the lady asked if we wanted them in the same box. Apparently they're not too concerned with avoiding cross contamination. **UPDATE** I did indeed get sick from these cupcakes. They are far from Celiac safe.
I love their white wedding cake gf cupcake! When I need a sweet fix, Gigi's is my go-to place! I have never gotten sick from their cupcakes and I am a celiac who's sensitive to even trace amounts of gluten. It's smart to call ahead and see if they have any gf cupcakes left before driving over. Sometimes they run out (because hello--gluten free cupcakes that actually taste good? Amazing!) I'm a big fan.
This cupcake place is not Celiac-friendly. I spoke with a manager a couple of weeks ago, and he said everything is made in the same pans-they just wash them. There is no special care taken to prevent cross-contamination. The manager said if he was me, he wouldn't chance it, which is a shame, because he said their gluten free cupcakes are really, really good. I am disappointed that I won't get to try them. It's always disappointed when some place "gluten free" isn't really for the people who need it.
Just got them and now I'm nervous. They look delicious, but I'm not sure if I want them after reading disclaimer sticker on box and last review :(
We used to be regulars of Gigi's. Have been told they have at least one gluten free option per day. Made a special trip today to get cupcakes for my three kids, and found out that not a single GF cupcake had been made today. Not very fun to tell your three kids that they cannot have a cupcake after you made a special trip because you were told there is a GF option every day. Call before you go so you don disappoint anyone.
Terrible - How can they market Gluten Free? I have Celiac Dx and became very ill. My sister has a wheat intolerance and became ill. Gluten Free is not a Fad! I hope this app removes them so no one else is fooled by "we take precautions".....My GI says otherwise! - -Disappointed - -
It's fun to be able to get cute cupcakes any day. The staff is helpful. We've never been sick from these cupcakes. We don't really like the flavored that aren't the flourless cake-- strange texture. I also don't think the frosting tastes that great. It tastes about like what I expect from canned frosting.
Gluten free cupcakes every day! So delicious! They have several different flavors each day!
Have been to this location 3 times and have never had a problem with cross contamination. The last time I went, I was disappointed to see that the Peanut Butter Cup flavor was sold out, but the woman at the counter (sorry, I didn't catch her name) offered to make me one if they had any gf ingredients left. They did, and it was delicious!
AMAZING GF cupcakes. Everything I eat one, I think they gave me a regular one by mistake. they are so yummy!
Gigi's in Louisville need to post a sign that they can't guarantee gluten safe. Cross contamination is possible. I was informed that Gigi's uses same mixing bowls/mixer used for gluten to mix gluten free mix. They just wash bowls in water & soap. Not safe for Celiac!
Definitely amazing tasting cupcakes but I get sick every time I've had them so I just can't do it anymore =[
I haven't tried their product yet but the ly do have a few GF selections. Bought a few to try out tonight. Great service just haven't tried it yet. Updating my review after trying the cupcake. WAY to sweet for my tastes. There are better in the wake forest nc area.
The GF cupcakes were amazing. We had the chocolate torte and there was absolutely NO texture difference! My 4 year old that doesn't have gluten issues even said mom this is the best!
Their gluten free cupcakes are the best I've ever had! They make three different kind of GF cupcakes fresh daily, and their menu for each day is posted online, so you know which day you can get which cupcake. I believe you can also order any flavor as a cake or large order of cupcakes for an event or party, although I haven't done that yet.
Only offer GF cupcakes on Fridays but have more great GF options for Valentines! :)
multiple gluten free flavors every day now!! very delicious if craving sweets. they of course still bake regular, so they caution for severe allergies, but I have Celiac and have never gotten sick with a GiGi GF cupcake.
I went to try their gluten free cupcakes today. They had four kinds out of their selection of 24 cupcakes (the rest were regular). The frosting was good but the cake part was not. Either they were dry or not cooked all the way and the consistency and flavor were just off and poor tasting.
