I am making a trip to NOLA to have a birthday cake from SWISS for my little sister. I have drooling over this cake for a year, since last years cake. A trip to Las Vegas for cake, of course! They are that good More...
We hired Swiss Confectionery to make our wedding cake after recommendations from some of our best friends in New Orleans. It was their classic white almond cake, with pineapple and raspberry filling . We sent them our inspiration idea, based on our wedding invitations and they did a fantastic job executing our vision. And the cake was absolutely delicious on top of it all!We would HIGHLY recommend Swiss!!! More...
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! More...
Everyone complimented us on our cakes. They said they were beautiful and tasted delicious.
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...
Stopped by here on NYE and grabbed some petite fours, and OMG these were the most delicious cakes I've ever had. They literally melt in your mouth. I'll definitely be back for more.
Swiss did an amazing job on a cake I ordered for my niece's shower. Not only yummy but beautiful !!
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...
Very professional and able to give me what I wanted. Tasting went very well. I am sure that all of my guests will enjoy this cake.
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...
Swiss was recommended by Bonnie at House of Broel. Lauren was very accommodating and so easy to work with. Both our wedding cake and grooms cake were delicious. All of our guests commented on how good our cakes were. More...
This place makes the most awesome cakes. This place has the most delightful smell when you enter the door. The cakes are so good and I always get excited when we get some.
the cake was beautiful and delicious. the staff were professional and made sure everything was coordinated with the restaurant so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. also the price was very reasonable. highly recommend. More...
Update: cake for the wedding was amazing! I ordered this months in advance, price was very reasonable and the cake was so good!
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!! More...
My cake from Swiss was AMAZING! They made it look exactly how I wanted, and they even perfectly matched the color of my bridesmaids dresses for a splash of color on the cake. Loved it and can't wait to eat the top of our cake! More...
Ordering our wedding cake from Swiss was a great decision. The process was so easy, and the cakes were delicious and beautiful!
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 !!!!!! More...
Excellent company. Has been around for years. Classic weddings cakes with excellent flavor!
My wedding cake was exactly like the picture I provided them. Everything last detail was beautiful and it tasted delicious!
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. More...
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...
I loved my cake. My grooms cake was a misunderstanding, but my cake came out great! Crazy because the only time I tasted it was when I ordered it. Too busy that night.
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!! More...
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!! More...
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. More...
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!) More...
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...
Wedding cake and grooms cake came out exactly how I wanted them and tasted great.
The Cake in a cup was hard to remove, but excellent. Wouldn't have guessed they've been here forever, and it's definitely a made-to-order cake-centric business.
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...
I ordered my Birthday Cake from Swiss Confectionery on June 14th. IT was not only Beautiful it tasted like a piece o Heaven. Thanks you guys for making my Birthday a success. You have a customer for life. More...
The best cake to purchase, EVER.
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! More...
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 the Only Place I would ever Get Cake from I've been eating Swiss cake for over 10 years Very Nice and Professional People
