Gambino's Bakery

New Orleans Favorite King Cake Since 1949
If you like, soft, sweet, cinnamony goodness rolled up into a heavenly cake (stuffed with a plastic baby inside), then this is the cake for you! It's the perfect excuse to plan a Mardi Gras Extravaganza with friends or at the office with coworkers. Just try not to end up in a NSFW situation and keep ya' shirts on, k? Don't say I didn't warn you!

Welcome to New Orleans, cher, where there are three hard-and-fast rules for Mardi Gras: you must beg for your beads, you must take your drink in a go-cup, and you must have a Gambino’s Bakery King Cake. How did the Gambino’s Bakery King Cake become the iconic cake for Mardi Gras? We don’t know. But we do know that that the bakery opened more than half a century ago. We do know that, year after year, locals and out-of-towners alike, from David Letterman to Oprah Winfrey, order their King Cake from Gambino’s Bakery. And we do know that Mardi Gras would not be Mardi Gras without a sweet purple, green, and gold Gambino’s Bakery King Cake. And that’s enough for us!

We're not the only ones who love them!

David Letterman and Oprah Winfrey have enjoyed Gambino’s King Cakes and sent them to friends. Gambino's is regularly named in newspapers and magazines as New Orleans' favorite King Cakes.
