Gambino’s Bakery King Cakes ships its famous King Cakes nationwide on Goldbelly! Anyone hosting a Mardi Gras party knows they’ve got to get Gambino’s. This legendary New Orleans bakery has been serving up king cakes and other treats since 1949. Simply put, Mardi Gras would not be Mardi Gras without Gambino’s. Gambino’s is most famous for its New Orleans original recipe for Chocolate Doberge Cake. An unchanged staple since 1949, these six layers of moist butter cake are filled with specialty custard then topped with buttercream icing and chocolate fondant icing. If you have a sweet tooth, then this cake will hit the sweet spot.

It all started in the early 1920’s with Beulah Ledner, who invented the legendary New Orleans regional specialty, Doberge cake. She later sold her New Orleans bakery and recipes to Joe Gambino, who opened the bakery under his name in 1949. Since then, locals and out-of-towners alike, from David Letterman to Oprah Winfrey, have ordered their classic King Cakes and Doberges from Gambino’s Bakery. Mardi Gras would not be Mardi Gras without a sweet purple, green, and gold Gambino’s Bakery King Cake!

pretty smooth process and everything arrived when expected. i've never ordered frozen cakes online and wasn't entirely sure how they would taste, but can i just say Rave Reviews! the Doberge cake in particular was exceptionally good. i had planned to order direct from the bakery till their website froze while i was trying to choose shipping options, so i was glad to see their products on your website. also appreciated the 2-for-1 flash sale on an item i'd already planned to buy; i gave the 2nd king cake to my neighbors, knowing their young daughter would have a blast decorating it herself

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!

Great look, just like the online photo, except that some of the swirl icing on top was smudged and stuck on the tin cover. Very good almond extract flavor. Not overly sweet. Great cake texture. Love tall cakes with impressive slices. Well-packed for shipment.

Had some trouble, and Goldbelly resolved the situation the best they could...and, that is all I ask! This is a challenging time for all of us, so being grateful for anyone given their best, is a blessing all of us should be grateful for! This is an amazing idea, full of magic and miracles! Any consumer can be grateful for Goldbelly, when their giving their best, and that's what I feel they are working toward, and doing! Consequently, the high rating, of a 10! Because, I did recommend my son, even with the problems 'we' ran into!

I received my King cake one day early than the scheduled date so that was a plus! And I’d never heard of such a cake or Gambino’s and took a chance on ordering through the mail. It arrived and it was so good! I’ve never bought a cake through the mail so I was ambivalent but my whole family was impressed too. So good! It’s given me the idea to get one for a party or get one for the Room and Board place my parents are In and all the residents could enjoy one. Thank you!
