We have been going to gigi's winston salem for 3 years but for the last 6 weeks doesnt matter what time of day we go they have less than 6 gf cupcakes available and wont make more because the new staff is lazy was told today that the head baker is out of the country and they would make any being that they was only open another 2 hours.
My son and I both have issues with gluten, although mine are more severe - I am *very* sensitive - and neither of us got sick. The icing is super sweet, but what a nice treat to have cupcakes that I didn't have to make! I do wish they had more gf options than wedding cake or triple chocolate... Maybe a nice strawberry...
They are good, and do have GF cupcakes. However, they are NOT celiac friendly. They are "gluten free" but are incredibly contamimated. If you have a sensitivity, you should be fine. If you actually have celiac, you WILL get sick.
Delicious gluten free cupcakes beautifully decorated!! They usually have at least 2 options, but sometimes there are more. The 2 consistent are a wedding cake ( vanilla cake, vanilla frosting.), and a chocolate. I've also had on occasion, a red velvet which was divine and a cherry ameretto- also divine! Such a treat to have a good quality cupcake!
Yes, their cupcakes are tasty and they have gf cookie dough... but it is NOT celiac friendly. They don’t have separate pans or mixers. They bake everything in a common area and will freely admit it’s not celiac safe if you ask. I guess at least there’s that.
Co worker kindly ordered 2 GF cupcakes. Sticker on the box says that the gluten-free are prepared on the same equipment as the regular cupcakes and they are not safe for celiacs! People should be warned when they order now she wasted money and I can't eat them. I'm getting myself one from Jones Bros so I don't feel left out.
Amazing gf cupcakes!! The chocolate one is flourless and the vanilla one is rice flour. The icing on the vanilla cupcake is equivalent to the hight of the cupcake it sits on! And is delicious! But so sweet I was not able to finish my part in one sitting. The chocolate one is like an amazing brownie. Great balance of icing and cake and a richness like a brownie. The cake is remarkably light for a flourless cake! Make the time to stop if you are in the area. You won’t be disappointed
We stopped here on a road trip to get something special for my daughter’s birthday. She got the GF chocolate cupcake in a cup and loved it. We also got GF strawberry cupcakes and they were delicious, too! Neither of my kids with celiac had any adverse reactions. Side note - the GF lunch at the (very) nearby Mellow Mushroom was also delicious with no ill effects.
While the choices are not extensive, this small cupcake shop does have two flavors of gluten free cupcakes to choose from. Although the manager could not guaranteed that the products were not cross-contaminated, she told us their process for making the cupcakes, and we felt comfortable in the safety of the cupcakes. The cupcakes (chocolate and wedding cake flavors) were both delicious, and we did not experience any adverse side effects. The bakery does place a sticker on the box stating that they cannot guarantee against cross-contamination.
Just alright cupcakes... I only go there when I need one right away. Cedar Park is by far wayyyyyyy better than Georgetown!!!
Very good gluten free cupcakes. They do not have a dedicated kitchen space that I know of, but I am celiac and have never had a problem. The GF menu is limited compared to their regular menu, but they will take a GF vanilla cupcake and put any flavor icing on it that you request. Delicious.
Tested with Nina sensor and was gluten free yum!!
Had extra GF in back. ...frosted while waiting!! Staff were smiling, friendly & happy to be there! Will go back! Follow up: left msg for Mgr, no return call. Ordered 6: 1st one, got sick. 2nd one, got sick. Threw the rest out. Have eaten Gigi's for a few years (Love them), 1st time gluten-ed. Very disappointed; not too mention, expensive. Would have liked to have heard from Mgr. Be careful.
I have Celiac Disease and I did not get sick! Best cupcakes in the area :) highly recommend update: i got 2 cupcakes last night and i always just take one bite to see if I'll get sick. i experienced some brain fog symptoms. eat at your own risk. so 3 weeks ago i was okay, last night not so much. :(
