Very great cake period. I usually write a lot...but sometimes things are what they are...I ordered their signature cake for a friend's 40th birthday and 2 years later people are still raving!

The best tasting cakes in NOLA if your a cake lover. Ialways get our birthday cakes from this company and they Never disappoint! We haven't ordered any wedding cakes but all their cakes I've gotten from the are usually the old traditional looking image. They are beautiful and remind you of the old days. And that's fine with me. Being  most of these other bakeries aren't really good, might look pretty but taste don't add up. IJS I would rather a traditional cake with great taste & moisture than a fancy up to date cake that's dry and nasty. More...

I absolutely luv!!! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There was an event that I needed a cake for at the very last minute & they were willing to help.  Bring your idea/vision and they work to ensure that vision is reaNot only helpful but the work is impeccable. A few years back I didn't enjoy white/wedding cake... but then I tried this..I'm a forever fan!! The cakes are fresh and simply melt in your mouth. You won't be disappointed! More...

Swiss is honestly the best bakery in the New Orleans area! They were the first cake we tasted and none of the others even compared!!
So amazing and customer service was superb! I'll be stopping to get petit fours for years to come!

THEY MADE MY WEDDING CAKE !I was recommended to a different bakery (from a photographer) for my wedding cake and I wasn't happy at that place so I asked a couple different wedding venues I was considering to recommend a bakery and almost every single venue I was considering recommended Swiss Confectionery. We called them on our last day of one of our planning trips to NOLA; 20 minutes later we were at their place because they let us having a tasting with no reservation. They are almost 100 years old and I know why, the cakes are great and the people working here are amazing. We chose their standard Almond Cake with Pineapple Jelly layer (although all the fillings/layers were delicious). We ordered a couple weeks later over the phone and emailed back and forth for the design and colors. We delivered our cake topper to them also and on our wedding day, they delivered the cake with our cake topper perfectly set on top to Antoine's Restaurant for our wedding. The cake was gorgeous even though it had blue flowers and it was supposed to be lavender/purple. Everyone loved the cake and so did I ! More...

We used Swiss for my wedding cake through City Park and they did a great job! It was such an easy process to go to the bakery and pick out what I wanted. They were helpful with deciding how much cake we needed in order to not over do the amount of cake regarding having a groom's cake also. The cake was delicious and light and beautiful! We were extremely pleased. Can't wait to get the topper out for our 1 year ! More...

Best cake I have ever eaten. I am a chef and I dream about this cake. Wedding cake supreme you can get a bridesmaid's cake with a different symbol in each slice. For example a dime in one slice for money coming, a ring for a wedding to come. It's so much more of a New Orleans tradition than tossing a bouquet More...

We used Swiss Confectionery for our wedding cake and the experience was excellent from start to finish. I didn't have to make an appointment to do a tasting, and took my friend with me as my fiancé (now husband) was busy at work. The cake was tasty, the designs were nice, the price was right, and the service was on point. My husband and I weren't sure we wanted traditional wedding cake flavor with the almond so I emailed them asking if I could buy a small cupcake or something in their yellow cake flavor. They told me they would have yellow cake the next day and of course no charge to taste it. The cake was delivered early the day of our wedding and looked gorgeous. We received a lot of compliments on how it looked and tasted. Somehow Swiss is one of the most affordable places in town for wedding cake, significantly lower than a lot of the other places we looked at. If you want to take worrying about your wedding cake off your list- go to Swiss. More...

I am always looking for good cakes! I'd tried them years ago, but nothing stood out to me about the cake. Fast forward to a few weeks ago. I was on Instagram, and saw someone post about how good and fresh the cake was! So I came on Yelp and read some reviews. I decided to get a 4th of July cake to try out, and MY GOODNESS!! I'm a sucker for white almond cake with buttercream icing. This cake was heaven in my mouth :) The crazy part is I almost forgot to order it! I called at 10am July 3rd. I thought sure they weren't going to be able to accommodate me. They took my order and told me it'd be ready after 12:00pm! My family thoroughly enjoyed it, and I look forward to getting more cakes from Swiss! More...

After growing up in New Orleans and having Swiss' cakes for almost every major event, there was NO WAY I was not going to have my wedding cake be from Swiss; even though my wedding was in Atlanta, GA.

Swiss was 100% on board with my cake vision, and packaged it so that it could be transported from New Orleans to Atlanta. Needless to say, it went off without a hitch, and it was absolutely delicious! Only a few pieces were left!

My wedding cake was the final piece to a perfect day, and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way. Thanks, Swiss!!

Swiss is a New Orleans institution. If you want a classic wedding cake with buttercream frosting, this is your place. We had a 4 tier, simple cake with our monogram and it was absolutely beautiful and tasted great!

These guys were amazing!

I was (ashamedly) an indecisive bride...and these guys were great. They were professional and patient.....and then- the cake was amazing! My guests loved it so much- they asked the caterers to take the leftovers home in boxes!

These guys don't toot their own horn enough- some seriously good cake! (and it was really pretty). They even made the decorations according to a picture I drew for them. AMAZING !!!!!!

BEST. CAKE. EVER! My guests were raving about the wedding cake. It was moist and super flavorful. It was sooooo good that my husband and I decided to eat the top right away instead of waiting for our anniversary. We are just going to order a small cake from them again next year! They were easy to work with; we did everything over the phone since I was from out of town (although I did get to go taste it). The cake design was beautiful and classy. Fantastic job!!!

I loved my cakes from Swiss! I had a vision for exactly what I wanted in mind & was very disappointed when a different cake vendor tried to charge an arm and a leg for fondant instead of buttercream . When I went to Swiss, they said the addition of fondant would be 1/3 of what I was previously quoted at the other venue and the bakers were actually excited to make it. I appreciated the intamacy at Swiss, the samples weren't pre-packaged trays, but were fresh from that day's cakes; I felt like they really cared. I also enjoyed their variety of cake pulls beyond the "traditional" ones in a variety of price ranges. The wedding cake was beautiful & very delicious!!
The one issue I had was around the grooms cake. While it looked great under the mood lighting of the venue, when the real lights swapped on we saw that the cake was the wrong color (blue instead of purple). I was pretty disappointed, especially since I provided a color image of what I wanted. My fiancee could still tell what it was supposed to be though, and other than one small detail, they were a fabulous vendor that I would still recommend, although you might want to do a follow up for the more obscure cake ideas.

Swiss provided my wedding cake and groom's cake. I wish I had the photo right now to show you. I literally went in with a photo and they made it a reality. It was more beautiful than I imagined! Everyone said that my cake was the most beautiful cake they had ever seen and it also tasted simply amazing. My cake was not the typical swiss cake. This just goes to show you that they can do anything. Don't be fooled by the people that tell you Swiss only does one type of cake....not true. I had a 4 tier, triple layer cake with a pattern that I wanted and fresh flowers in between each layer and on top. The tiers were not all the same shape. They really did a great job on a cake that I knew would be a little difficult. More...

The best surprise for wedding and grooms cake. I let them decide the decoration of my wedding cake just because I had no clue what I wanted for design. I could have not been any happier. With my cake. They asked what I like and didn't like. What my colors are for the wedding and put them into the cake. More...

EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!! I live in Dallas, grew up in New Orleans, and just had to have the New Orleans wedding! I have had several birthday cakes from Swiss so I knew that they made cakes that taste awesome! Lauren at Swiss made everything so simple and fun! We worked together through email, phone and photos. My wedding cake was absolutely beautiful, the grooms cake was perfect, and both were so delicious! Thank you Swiss for everything! My guests raved about both cakes for days following the event!!

I honestly do not know why you would look anywhere else for a wedding cake. Swiss is an New Orleans staple, and will make any bride's vision come to light. They were so professional, and amazing to work with for my April 22nd wedding. All I literally had to do, was pick out my cake and get married! Everything else was taken care of, and that really means a lot - especially for someone that was planning their own wedding, from out-of-town! Also, as a tip to anyone looking - one huge advantage of going with Swiss versus another bakery - is that they have worked with practically every venue in town and because of that I didn't have to worry about having them connect and coordinate with cake delivery and setup the day of. That alone to me is priceless - the cake is pretty amazing too! More...

My entire life we have gotten our "big occasion" cakes from Swiss, so my wedding was no different. If you're looking for super fancy, this isn't your place. If you're looking for simple and amazingly delicious, welcome to Swiss. Our cake was not only beautiful, but delicious. We did all three flavors; one on each layer. I received numerous compliments on how fresh and moist the cake was from guests. And, to top it all off, it didn't break the bank and fed about 80 people easily. I highly recommend Swiss. The staff is friendly, they make a great product, and they deliver. All wins in my book. More...

Came into town for the French quarter festival and was celebrating my wife's birthday with a dinner with friends.  Ordered a cake to be delivered to the restaurant.  We had a dozen folks who unanimously praised the taste and quality of the cake.  We got the white cake with almond flavoring and strawberry filling.  Yum!!  I heartily recommend this bakery!!

Swiss Confectionery is a New Orleans staple. My wedding cake tasted like a little piece of heaven. My cake was light and not overly sweet. The wedding cake was beautifully decorated. Swiss Confectionery did not disappoint. Everyone in New Orleans knows that Swiss has good cakes but it is the customer service that exceeded my expectations. I sent my mother in law to choose our cake and keep it a surprise until our reception. The staff was able to help her choose a design and filling. They even helped her locate the cake pulls that she had to have. My sister was impressed that the cake came along with an escort when it was delivered. The attention to detail really makes Swiss Confectionery top notch. I can't wait to use them again. More...

Swiss Confectionery prepared our son's Groom's Cake. We had ordered a Texas Longhorn-shaped cake with the particular color of burnt orange. They nailed it. We received many compliments from guests on how delicious the cake was as well. We are from out-of-state, but I would certainly use them again if ever in New Orleans. More...

Their cakes are amazing. Here I am 2.5 years later thinking about the cake they did for my wedding. It was perfect!  Living out of state, and with my upcoming wedding taking place in New Orleans, I talked w/ someone via phone to begin the order process and used fax where needed to send cake details, and then during my visit to the wedding location in NOLA, I stopped by to sample cake.. OMG.  One of the highlights for me on that day.  On the wedding day, they delivered and set the cake up.  It smelled w/ delight, was made to order, and I loved it.  I opted for simplicity, but it was by far the best cake I and my new husband and guests had.Our top-layer (1st year anniversary cake) was just as fresh as the day of the wedding!   Can't wait to visit home again with hopes to indulge in their cake.

Swiss made my wedding cake and my groom cake. My wedding cake was beautiful. It was exactly how I wanted, and it tasted so moist and delicious. My husband got a LSU themed grooms cake and it was exactly what he wanted as well. I didn't get to try the groom's cake but someone told me it was a little dry. Overall, I loved the service and attitudes of the workers, and I was happy with the way my cakes turned out. More...

We absolutely loved our cakes! I was able to take one of their designs, pick my own colors (which they provide color chips to choose from, clipped a sample, and saved with our order), make a few adjustments, and make it ours! Having some artistic background, I especially appreciated the color chips as it allowed me to pick specific shades rather than just saying blue and purple. And the cakes tasted just as I remembered from the tasting.

If you are looking for great service, great cake, and a great experience: go to Swiss Confectionery! They may not be as big name brand as others in the New Orleans area (or at least they weren't to me before), but Swiss Confectionery provides a great taste for a great price, and doesn't nickle-and-dime you. Their pricing is very simple and easy to understand.

The amount we spent with our vendor includes both our wedding cake and grooms cake with about 150 servings combined.

(P.S. I did also have a tasting with Gambino's on Veterans in Metairie, had a bad experience, wrote them a review and they had it taken down because I couldn't provide a receipt of service - I didn't buy anything because of the bad service!)

It was on the last day of our wonderful trip to New Orleans that we discovered Swiss Confectionary by chance. In the style of true southern hospitality, Don, one of the members of the family who has owned this bakery for 95 years, embraced our touristy questions with open arms. He told us tales of their history while we marveled over their custom cakes prepared for multiple special events. As we were about to leave, he gave us a box of petifores to try on our way back home. They were absolutely the best samples of cake we have ever had. Thank you Don for ending our vacation in such a fun way. More...

We traveled from Louisville Kentucky to New Orleans for my boyfriend's 50th Bday. Swiss went out of their way to make us a certain cake. They nailed it!! Not only was the design exactly what I had asked for it also tasted so yummy. They even delivered the cake to our hotel room!! I would absolutely say go to Swiss!! The price was fair and they delivered the cake for just $10. More...

We knew we wants to use Swiss from the beginning, it was only a matter of tasting their cakes, fillings, and how we wanted it to look! We went in for a cake tasting, choose traditional with a strawberry filling and we were NOT disappointed. The service during the cake tasting wasn't the best, as we waiting around for a while, but our service with them after that was fine. And the cake was delicious! We also weren't big on having a cake topper, so they created a beautiful gold bow made of fondant to go on top. They incorporated gold ribbon we wanted as well, which we purchased from Michaels. Our cake was perfect for our 150 guests! More...

Swiss did an amazing job with our wedding cake. While trying to decide which baker to hire, everyone kept telling us to go with Swiss, and we are glad we did! The value was definitely the best out there too. They were very reliable and responsive and I did't have any issues with the delivery of our cake (even though our wedding was on a Sunday, when they are typically closed). I would highly recommend!

Ordered a birthday cake to be delivered to our hotel for my boyfriend as a surprise and everything worked out. He loved the cake - the flavor was very good (almond cake with white icing). The only small down side is that the cake was kind of crumbly but I am assume it is made this way so that the cake remains soft and fluffy. More...

This is by far the best cake I've ever tasted! The staff knows my family and my boyfriend's family so every time we walk in, it's a reunion. This place is know for their delicious birthday cakes and wedding cakes specifically. They are always made fresh and are never late for pickup. The petit fours are a great snack when you don't want a whole cake. Although their cake-in-a-cups have increased to $3, (most likely due to Mardi Gras season), most likely they'll go back down to about $2.50. I've never tried their king cakes but their cakes are delicious enough to keep you coming back for more! More...

How could you give Swiss anything less than five stars is beyond me. They could hand me this cake behind the dumpster, kick me in the stomach, and slap me all the way back to my car and it might take it down to a 4.5 star. And since that isn't an option... it would still be a five.I have literally never had anything but the cake. But it has been a family tradition for years on Birthday's, Christmas, Thanksgiving... I bet if my family got together for National Librarian Day, we would have one.This is also coming from a guy who doesn't like sweets all that much. But when you get a fresh Swiss cake, there is not much better. The cake is as light and fluffy as possible. When you were a kid and you imagined sleeping on big fluffy clouds, that is this cake. The icing is always light and perfect. And every filling I have had has been on point. I read in another review about everything being so bare... and they are spot on. Honestly I have no idea why this tiny place has the amount of space they do! They need their kitchen, and a counter big enough for a cash register. That's it!My New Orleans family of generations have been coming here. And as long as the quality stays the same and they are open, we will come for generations more! More...

My wedding cake was the biggest surprise of my wedding. Swiss exceed my expectations above and beyond. My cake from Swiss was included as part of my catering package with Joe's Catering at the Hampton Inn Convention Center, and I am so happy with the caterer's choice. I had no real clue what kind of wedding cake I wanted, but when I went into the store there were pictures of previous cakes. After, I left and placed my ordered I had a general idea of what I wanted but all the details weren't complete. After some time I sketched a picture if my wedding cake, called Swiss and emailed it to them. On the day of my wedding I was so shocked to see how it turned out, it was perfect! The cake also tasted great. My wedding guest mentioned to me how the cake tasted. The next time I am in New Orleans I will buy a cake from Swiss just because. Highly recommended! More...

Best bakery in NOLA. Hands down (beating Gambino's, Haydel's, and any other local bakery by a long shot). Swiss treats you like family. My parents went to them for their own wedding and that was over 25 years ago before I was even born! Even today, they have some of the best cakes I've ever tasted. If you're not from here, you need to give this local business a look up. You won't regret it. More...

The taste of the cake was amazing. I highly recommend the raspberry filling. More...

Swiss Confectionery saved the day for me after I had been through the wringer with several other bakeries in town trying to order a wedding cake (one that wouldn't deliver on a Sunday [Haydels'], and another that dragged me along for weeks and then said they couldn't do it after all [Bittersweet Confections]). I was so upset after the runaround at Bittersweet (I had been trying to place an order for weeks and gotten some pretty surly attitude from one employee) that I really wondered if I would even have a cake for the wedding. I called Swiss Confectionery and was able to place an order over the phone within about five minutes. It was stress-free and the owner Laurie, who took my order, was very friendly. The cake itself was great--several guests commented about how good it was. I know some reviewers have complained that their flavors are very limited, and that's true, but I like wedding cake and wanted my cake to taste like wedding cake! We opted for vanilla and chocolate buttercream between the layers. I know other bakeries may have much more inventive cakes, but I honestly wanted simple--white cake, white frosting with scattered Swiss dots, with ribbons around each layer and fresh flowers on top. It was absolutely beautiful and looked just like what I had requested, and it was also a fraction of the price of Bittersweet (for a much larger cake). They had only a slight surcharge for delivery on a Sunday. I sadly ended up having only one bite of my own wedding cake. Luckily we have the topper to have for our first anniversary! I really had been shocked that my cake-ordering had become so stressful and frustrating prior to calling Swiss. I really wish I had called them to begin with!Oh, I also had a rum ball when I went by to drop off some ribbon for the cake--it was fantastic! More...

Everyone at Swiss did a wonderful job for our wedding! It was very helpful because they have a partnership with Pat O's on the River venue, so we had a deposit for our wedding cake. I would definitely recommend especially for anyone planning a destination wedding or event. They were great at communicating over the phone and emailing. They made everything work out just how we wanted it regarding the taste, look of the cake, and pricing. Our guests would not stop saying how delicious it was! We also kept our top layer and can't wait to enjoy it on our one year anniversary. Thank you Swiss! More...

We ordered both a wedding cake and a groom's cake from Swiss Confectionery. We went in for cake sampling months before the wedding and was very satisfied. Megan was very friendly and professional. The groom's cake that I requested was definitely non-standard - it was a weapon system that my now husband and I used to work on together in the military. They did such a fabulous job that my husband was blown away by the surprise. I sent them pictures and they created a cake that looked like it! That, and the cake was so delicious. We took some of it home and it was still absolutely delicious days after. More...

I'm from out of town and ordered my wedding cake here based on these Yelp reviews alone. Not being there in person to sample cake and talk to people face to face can be a challenge. But, this bakery did NOT disappoint--in fact, it was the best cake I ever had! The price was fair, the staff was lovely to deal with, and again, the cake was fantastic.

There's no wondering why Swiss has been in business for 50+ years. I was initially torn between them and one other bakery in New Orleans.

Love this place. I have been getting cakes here for a while and even though their designs are limited, it brings back a sense of old school charm!

Wedding Cake!  This place smells of diabetes.  Sweet, sweet diabetes.  I did not know this place existed because I had a lot of loyalty to a cake bakery near my home, but they keep weird hours, I'd promised someone petit fours when my home bakery was closed, and Yelp did not disappoint! I stopped out front and realized it was one of those weird zones you aren't supposed to park in, but found a pay spot around the corner.  As soon as I walked in, the guy who came up to help me said, "I saw you out front.  You could have parked there!  Tell me you didn't pay for parking?!"So I had planned to buy two dozen petit fours, but I was hungry and they looked perfect and smelled delicious and... well, four boxes of a dozen each.Oh, and they were perfect and wonderful and amazing and I finished off a box by myself in one day... and that was with all of the self control I could muster.

I went with a group of friends to New Orleans for my daughter's birthday. We made dinner reservations a few weeks in advance and asked if they could make a cake. They said no but recommended Swiss Confectionery. SC helped me pick flavors, decorations, etc. The day of the dinner, they called while I was out of town on a tour and said they had tried twice to deliver the cake, but found out the restaurant wouldn't be open until well after they closed. The SC manager gave me her cell phone, and when we got back to town she was waiting at the bakery to give me the cake - WOW. And speaking of WOW, the cake was phenomenal. When we were leaving the hotel the next day, we asked the desk clerk and valet guy if they wanted a slice - and once they heard it was from SC, they sure did. More...

Holy Hell RUM BALLS!SITREPI swear, you know how every community needs a fire house?  A farmer's market?  A good pizza parlor?  Well, I'm gonna add now that every community needs a Swiss Confectionery! This was a total random gem of a find for me!  As it happened, as I was wandering around the Warehouse District, enjoying some great sight-seeing, I found this storefront shop.  And since it was not far from the Hotel Modern where I was staying, it was easy to visit more than just once!THE SETUPThis shop is best known for it's wedding cakes.  That much I learned after-the-fact as well from the good people at Hotel Modern who have hosted wedding receptions with cakes from Swiss Confectionary.  But I don't know about those.What I did enjoy were the Rum Balls that Swiss Confectionary had!  Bursting with great liquor flavors!  I also had to try a macaroon and a jelly roll.  These items all rocked my socks off!PASTRY SHELLSI also learned that Swiss Confectionary is much sought after for it's pastry shells they bake for more savory dishes.  These can be filled with various cheese and vegetable fillings for hors d'oeuvres for the special dinner event or work cocktail party.  And sometimes these can be the hardest part about making hors d'oeuvres, because I can whip up a could spinach & kale cheese stuffing, but who the hell has time to make layers of pastry shells?  Wa-la!  Swiss Confectionary takes care of the difficult part!MY FAVORITE QUESTION THEY GETApparently a LOT of people ask her if they can buy their wedding cakes with "food stamps".  The short answer is "no" since their confectionary items are considered luxury items.  Just for the record.THE LOWDOWNOne of the best confectionary & pastry shops I've ever seen (and tasted!) and I just wish it was 2000 miles closer.

our wedding cake was exactly like the picture we gave them. It was delicious. We had a king cake for grooms cake. it was a last-minute decision. I had never had their king cake before, and I probably would not get it again. But other than that everything was fantastic More...

Simply amazing. We had shopped around to several local bakeries in NOLA and had difficulties (mainly with who would deliver at the time dictated by our reception venue and trying not to spend a million dollars on a couple of cakes). Swiss Confectionary should have been the only place we went because it is out of this world. The staff are courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. The cakes are absolutely delicious and just what I had wanted. I did not want fondant and was able to get poured icing, similar to the icing on petit fours. Our wedding and grooms cake were delivered on time and we received nothing but compliments on the design and especially the taste. More...

Top notch on every level -- even when things don't go as expected.Here's what happened. I called to order a birthday cake and asked if it could be ready for Saturday. The employee receiving the call must've heard "the second" (as in March 2nd), said yes, and took my order. I show up Saturday, and of course, it hasn't been made. I told the woman at the counter that I ordered it for today, and with no time wasted and with no questions asked, she sped my order through production and had it ready in less than an hour. And it looked and tasted as if it had been crafted meticulously for days. They even threw in a free box of those mini-cakes (petafors or petaphors or whatever). Also delicious.March 2nd was what was on the order, and they could've easily turned me away as they were obviously very busy that day, but instead, they were champions about dealing with a curveball on the spot. Highly recommended. More...

When I was in NOLA for the Super Bowl, I needed a birthday cake for a Friday evening dinner at Mr. B's. After checking on yelp a few days before my Friday arrival into town, I called Swiss Confectionery. They made a beautiful cake which was delicious and delivered to the restaurant for me. Everyone loved the special pineapple filling. Thank you Swiss Confectionery! Your cake was the "icing on the cake" after our fabulous meal. More...

I just got married on Friday and our cake came from Swiss. It was wonderful! The taste was spectacular and it was so pretty. Super moist, fantastic frosting and several guests said it was the best cake they ever had. The only reason I can't give it five stars is because when we got to the reception location before the party to set up, I saw the cake and it was filled with frosting roses on the top. The top was supposed to be plain to accommodate my in-laws vintage cake topper. We had to call Swiss, but they came and got the cake and fixed it. It was back in place in time. Needless to say, they fixed the problem but added a lot of stress to an already stressed out bride. Regardless, best cake ever, best bakery in NOLA. More...

My daughter called me the day of her birthday.She ask did i get her a cake from swiss. I told her no. You have to order cakes in advance because they make them to order. She was really upset and hung the phone up in my face. When my daughter got home from work she smell the cake when she walked through the door that was part of her gift. Swiss cakes melts in your mouth and they are always fresh .I love swiss cake it melts like cotton candy in your mouth More...

I'd give them a 10 if I could!!We were visiting Nola from San Diego and I need a b day cake for my husbands birthday.Swiss Confectionery was one of 3 recommended by my hotel. I called the others and was shocked at how expensive an endeavor this could have been. Swiss confectionery not only made a BEAUTIFUL & delicious cake but they delivered it to my hotel & all for a 3rd of the cost of the others.Truly amazing!!! & I can't thank them enough for making my husbands b day special!

I didn't get a chance to try it but can't wait to try it on our anniversary. We went with the untraditional devil's chocolate and the guests loved it. More...

I've been a customer of Swiss going on 15 years. Mr. Bill, Ms. Rhonda & Ms. Laura, are all wonderful, pleasant people. Not only did they help design my wedding, but, they also help design my daughters wedding cake. As you can see, I'm very pleased with Swiss,our cakes are always so fresh, and I always have to order a larger size, because my guest are always looking to take some home. And now we have a whole new generation of cakes being made, from my grandson's baby shower to most recently his 5th birthday (December 16, 2010). Thank you all, for always making our occasions, memberal, even when I wait til the last minute, and you still manage to fit me in, again, thank you. More...

My husband was given a surprise award party at his office tonight. They had pizza and salad. Then they had cake. Not a cake, but THE CAKE. It was so good I wanted to lay it on the floor and roll in it. I have never wanted to do that. Well maybe once, but that's another story for later. The cake it self was so moist and full of flavor. It almost melted on my tongue. In between the layers was a thin layer of pineapple. It was so complementary to the icing and the cake. It was not over powering. It was just perfect. The icing was light, sweet and smooth. A traditional icing, but 5 levels higher. I will be ordering my next cake from them for sure. I will be visiting the shop soon. More...

when asked what my favorite dessert was, i used to always say, "wedding cake."   not for some sappy, sentimental, "i love weddings, let's watch 'the notebook'." reason, but because that was the best-tasting cake i could think of.  ...and then i turned 25 and it seemed like everyone i knew was suddenly getting married.  i went to wedding after wedding after wedding, psyched at all the wedding cake (MY FAVORITE) i was going to be able to consume.  invariably, i was disappointed with the cake.  they were all beautiful, sure.  but some were too dry.  some were too frosted.  others, not enough.  i could never get back to that "wedding cake" taste that i dreamt about my whole life.  for the life of me, i couldn't imagine what was missing.  at one point i even thought i'd made it up.  maybe my favorite dessert was pie...and then i went back to new orleans for a wedding in december.  (insert choir of angels).  HALLELUJAH!!!  *this* was the cake i had dreamt about.  *this* was the cake i had drooled over when i received all of those wedding invitations in the mail.  i turned to my mother and said, "why is this cake SO GOOD?!?!  and where has it been in these intervening years since i left new orleans?"  and she said one word that changed my life-- "swiss."BEST CAKE EVERRRRR!  for real, y'all.  this cake will change your life.  not only are the cakes at swiss gorgeous, but the taste is beyond beyond.  someone else on yelp described them as magical and i would have to agree.  this cake colored my perception of all other cakes for my whole life without even knowing it...if that doesn't spell "institution", i don't know what does.

Swiss made our wedding cake beautiful and it was delicious! We also brought in our own cake pulls and they were happy to incorporate these into the cake with no problem. Be aware that you must either have an in-town personal check or else cash as they don't have credit card machine. They wouldn't even take a check from across the lake. There was also some trouble getting them to understand what my husband wanted for a groom's cake, so we ended up getting this elsewhere. However, swiss was our definite choice for the wedding cake and we highly recommend it! More...

Just not friendly especially lady who may be owner. One guy who's been there is ok, but I bet pressured by owner (lady) who is unfriendly and unprofessional. Cakes are commendable because of taste no other has. I still go under crucial circumstances, very important events, but sometimes go elsewhere because of attitudes. I give a 4 for cakes, but not 5 because of unfriendliness. More...

I have had Swiss cakes for special occasions since I was a child. My wedding cake, my 25th Anniversary cake, my children's birthday cakes, graduation cakes, have all come from Swiss. I would not go anywhere else. When you bring the cake home it smells the whole house - we usually order a bigger size cake then needed, so we have left overs. Always fresh....can draw just about anything on the cake......and the poured icing I just had on our anniversary cake looked so elegent and tasted delicious. They will have my business for years to come - its a tradition in my family. More...

Swiss definitely has the BEST cakes anywhere in the area. Yes, your choices on designs are limited, but I promise, the taste and quality of their cakes will more than make up for it. The people there are friendly and willing to work with each customer to make them happy. I would HIGHLY recommend this bakery to anyone looking for a cake for any occasion. Whatever you do, do NOT listen to the previous person who recommended Haydel's bakery. That bakery is HORRID. Not only do their cakes taste bad but we have on more than one occasion gotten a soured cake from them. BUY FROM SWISS!! If you don't believe me about how great their cake is, stop by and ask for a sample! More...

I would HIGHLY recommend Swiss to anyone looking for a wedding cake, or a cake of any sort for that matter. Swiss by far has the highest quality, best tasting cakes around. They are very easy and pleasant to work with in creating your cake and will gladly do special requests. I had always dreamed of having my wedding cake created by Swiss and was so happy to have that dream come true. Also, if you have never had a Swiss wedding cake before, stop by their bakery and ask for a taste! More...

Swiss Confectionery is a legendary bakery in the New Orleans area. The cake they provided for me was beautiful. However, the words were smeared on the bottom layer. When I explained to the lady there that I am not overly fond of traditional wedding cake and asked for other flavor suggestions, she gave me a piece of their wedding cake to try. She stated that I may like it better. When I tried it and still didn't like it, she stated that "it was what my guests would be expecting" and to stick with it. Because they were included in the cost of the package with the Embassy, it was free of charge. However, I am not sure I would have chosen them otherwise. More...

This place is a New Orleans staple.Every birthday cake of my childhood came from this place. The husband started surprising me with petit fours in 2004.Before we return to NOLA these days, we call Swiss Confectionery to order 6 dozen petit fours for $37. (Don't forget to call in advance as they are short staffed, post-K.)If you turn your petit four over, you'll see shiny sparkling sugar crystals. It's like magic cake!Every New Orleans native knows that this is the place to order your wedding cake or your guests WILL scoff. The cake makers at Swiss are talented artists that produce more than pastries...they create memories. More...

The cake was delivered on time, and was a hit. I definitely recommend them. More...

We got a fantastic wedding cake here at a very reasonable price. The cakes are moist, and their signature poured fondant is a dream, especially the almond-flavored one. They have both traditional and modern-style. Our square layers, stacked on an angle and topped with a giant chocolate bow, impresses everyone who sees the picture. They can even put in the old-fashioned ""pull charms"". Their groom's cakes can be very creative, to say the least. More...
