Anyone hosting a Mardi Gras party knows they’ve got to get Gambino’s. This legendary bakery has been serving up king cakes and other treats in New Orleans since 1949. Simply put, Mardi Gras would not be Mardi Gras without a sweet purple, green, and gold Gambino’s Bakery King Cake. Made with fresh butter and sweet cinnamon, topped with a generous layer of poured fondant, and baked with the customary gold baby figure inside (tradition has it whoever finds the figure in their slice is king or queen for the day), the iconic Gambino’s Bakery King Cake comes with a package of colored sugar so you can top your cake in the purple, green, and gold of New Orleans.

It was a birthday cake for a friend. She was originally from New Orleans and frequented Gambino's bakery. Her first move was to open the box and smell. She said it smelled just like Gambino's bakery the way she remembered from her childhood. So glad that they are shipping their cakes!

We ordered the Unicorn cake to celebrate our grandmother’s 103rd birthday. Much like the unicorn, “Gigi” is a mythical creature & the cake was a perfect reminder of that!!
