They used to be my go to place for cupcakes, then a few months ago they started decreasing the variety they offered for gluten free. I found a new wonderful even better bakery for all my sweet treat wishes!
Not safe for those with GF needs! They keep their gluten free cupcakes in the same case as regular cupcakes. Way too much cross contamination! And if you do brave trying a cupcake, the cake part is extremely dry with very little flavor.
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 - -
The cupcakes are the best I have ever had. They take precautions to ensure they are GF, but as with ANY restaurant or bakery with non-GF stuff, it's nearly impossible to be perfect. They have GF flavors every day :)
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.
Every Friday they have gluten free cupcakes, and often on other days they will have gluten free cupcakes too.
Had the lemon cupcake with lemon icing and it was glorious!
They used to have more seasonal flavors offer in GF. Now just the same dry chocolate torte and crumbly, flavorless wedding cake. Website shows other franchises may still bake seasonal offers in GF but can't get here.
I love the absolutely delicious GF options that Gigi's offers. I always been happy with my orders and always appreciate their friendly service.
Amazing tasting!! but I had a reaction both times I ate here.
They make the best GF cupcakes and they change the flavors daily.
They have a sign up specifically stating that although they offer gf cupcakes, they do not suggest those with Celiac eat them. They did say gf cupcakes can be ordered in advance and then they would be made first thing in the morning in an attempt to cut down on possible contamination. I haven't decided if I'll try that route yet.
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.
Lots of gluten free options. They bake the gluten free cupcakes first thing in the morning so they don't get contaminated. The cupcakes are made with rice flour so it depends on if you can have rice or not. They change their gloves and put the gluten free cupcakes in a separate box. They are very good about not cross contaminating.
I had 4 options for gluten-free cupcake on a Friday night - princess, lemon, chocolate peanut butter, and triple chocolate torte. We got the lemon and the pb. Lemon was a smidge gummy and could've been more lemony but it was still good. The chocolate was pretty good, but mostly because of the divine tasting frosting! I would go back.
Delicious cupcakes! Not celiac safe! Gluten free cupcakes and regular cupcakes are kept in the same case in the Louisville store. The same bowls and utensils are used for both although there is no signage. Definitely cross contamination. If you are not highly sensitive, I highly recommend.
If I could give 0 stars I would. I ordered birthday cupcakes for my little one who has Celiacs along with a dairy allergy. I was assured that they could and did make them free of both. She didn't feel well after eating them, but after being assured by Gigi's many times I assumed it was because of so much sugar. 6 months later I called to order the same for pre k graduation and was told that they could only do gluten OR dairy free, but not both. I asked the manager how long it had been that way and was informed that it always has been so whatever I had gotten previously had either gluten or dairy in it.
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!!
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 :(
