Gigi’s makes fresh cupcakes daily, but there are a limited number of gluten friendly cupcakes— so they’re first come-first serve (unless you place an order in advance of course). They have two standard flavors year-round that are gluten friendly (“triple chocolate torte” & “wedding cake” which is a vanilla with buttercream frosting). They typically have a third flavor that is alternated based on the day/season. For example I’ve had a pumpkin caramel flavor during the fall, but presently (winter) they have a Banana Caramel Crunch option that’s gluten friendly. I found this location of the national chain to be just as good as other locations that I’ve had positive experiences with previously.

Have been there twice recently. Each time had 3 GF cupcakes to choose from. One was pumpkin cake with caramel icing. FANTASTIC.

They will be happy to give you ingredients of cupcakes when needed for allergen concerns! The cupcakes are made with rice flour. They use real sugar, not anything artificial! They do not claim to be celiac friendly. They boxed my cupcakes separately from my husband’s non GF cupcakes, keeping cross contamination from happening. The GF cupcakes are kept in a case separated from the others. They do not offer dairy free options, I am unsure of other allergens, but they happily will answer for you over phone or in store. The cupcakes are very delicious!

Gigi’s was delightful! My girls kept wanting to go back there. Our family is very celiac but we didn’t get sick and there was no contamination. The cake is delicious and the frosting is heavenly. Go here
My daughter recently got married and we purchased her gf wedding cake here. It was beautiful and delicious!! Totally recommend
Offers 3 flavors of GF cupcakes daily with rotating seasonal favorites. Friendly staff. We’ve never been disappointed in Gigi’s.
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.
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.
