The King of the King Cakes

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, the iconic Mardi Gras cake locals line up for and out-of-towners, from David Letterman to Oprah Winfrey, have delivered year after year.

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
