I was biking by and decided to stop. Cookies in a bag $2.50, a dozen Petit Fours $7.50, Mixed Cake $6.50, and Cake in a Cup $2.50 I chose the Cake in a Cup and it was so fresh and yummy! Pineapple cream cheese filling. I bought some petit fours to try later!

Due to some last minute issues, I had to find a bakery that could make our wedding cake in 2 days... I was recommended to The Swiss Confectionery by our reception planner. I called and was told to stop in so we could speak about the cake. When I arrived, I was overwhelmed by the kindness and understanding of the... More

We came to New Orleans to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday with a few friends. I ordered a small cake from Swiss Confectionery before we got down there. I wasn't expecting anything special. Based the price I was quoted, I expected a small plain Jane birthday cake. Wow! I was pleasantly surprised. They put as much care & attention into... More

For some odd reason, bakeries are not easy to find in New Orleans. We went looking for this one, and passed it up the first time because it is so simple. When we walked in the door, the place was clean and had multiple cake displays, but there was very little in the display case at the cashiers. At first,... More

In 1991, Swiss provided my wedding cake. It was perfectly memorable. I no longer reside in New Orleans, but when I am in town to purchase a birthday cake or petit fours, I always do so with Swiss. I brought several cakes over the years for birhtdays for friends and family and everyone always raves about a Swiss cake! They... More

I was a little disappointed with my wedding cake. It was not moist and was pretty crumbly. The flower decorations and buttercream work was sub par for my expectations of an experienced bakery. I could have gotten that from a local grocery store. Not sure how long these guys have been in business but I wouldn't go back for another... More

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... More

Swiss doesn't need my review to maintain its perfect score. That comes with 90 years of being the quintessential cake baker in New Orleans. There's no question which bakery a bride-to-be should select for her big day. That's why as father-of the-bride I was proud to pick-up Caroline's wedding cake during a thunderstorm two Saturday's ago. We were off to... More

Swiss has made both of my wedding cakes. FYI, the second time was the charm, 25 years in September! We are having a surprise 80th birthday party for my mom this Saturday at Smilies restaurant. Would not order her cake from anywhere but Swiss, it is our favorite. I called them several times prior to ordering and Laurie was helpful... More
