This product is currently sold out.

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 arrives with a package of fondant icing and a package of colored sugars so you can top your own cake in the purple, green, and gold of New Orleans, an official 8 1/2” x 11” Mardi Gras poster, and a brochure on the history of Mardi Gras King Cakes.

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!!

I enjoyed how great it tasted for it being delivered on dry ice. It defrosted well and the cake stayed together.

Having a King Cake delivered from Gambino’s made my family and I feel like we were back home. Grew up in New Orleans and this brought back such fond memories.

Kingcake was as fresh as if I had walked into Gambinos and purchased it. Very well packaged for its trip to Tucson and DC.

It was great. Haven't had a real King cake in many years and I really cant afford to go back to NOLA so this was the next best thing. Thanks Goldbelly

It was fresh and very tasty. I ordered it for a Three Kings celebration at our church and everyone enjoyed it. I plan to order one again next year. I have been doing this for several years and this was by far the best cake I have had!
