Gladys’ Bakery ships its famous Texas shaped fruitcake nationwide on Goldbelly! If you think you don’t like fruitcake then it’s time for you to try one of Gladys’; it’s not your typical fruitcake! Gladys’ Bakery has created an original pecan cake whose tops are solidly covered with rows of cherries and pecan halves. Bitter citron, raisins, and dates are left out leaving a satisfying pecan taste mixed with fresh cherries and pineapples. Shaped like the state of Texas, your guests and recipients are sure to have never seen a cake like this. While their 150 lb. Fruit Cake has been featured on the Johnny Carson Show—this 25 lb. Fruit Cake is the biggest size they ship these days. Don’t worry though—it’s still humongous.
Gladys’ Bakery opened in 1972 in a rural Texas hamlet 100 miles from both San Antonio and Houston. Founder Gladys Farek, a mother of 6 girls, was looking for a creative outlet and began baking bread, cookies, and pies; however, it was when she made her first fruitcake (and later, a world record-sized, Texas-shaped fruitcake) that a legend was born. Decades later, Gladys’ Weimar, Texas, bakery is Texas proud, loading its Czech-style fruitcakes with fresh Texas pecans and none of the usual raisins, dates, or spices.
