Deck the Halls this Holiday Season with Yummy Treats from Gambino’s Bakery

Gambino’s bakery is turning heads this holiday season with all of their extravagant desserts, perfect for any and all of your parties and gatherings! Joe Gambino’s Bakery officially opened in 1946, and despite hurricane Katrina devastation in 2005, the bakery continues to thrive and share treats with the world. What do they pride themselves most on? Making treats fresh daily, and completely by hand, following cake and pastry recipes that date back to 100 years ago.

And with the holidays right around the corner, what better way to say “I love you” to your family than with everyone’s favorite desserts? Lucky for you, Gambino’s has a variety of dessert options for all.

Doberge Cakes

Gambino’s most notable dessert dates back to 1946 when Beulah Ledner, the creator of the original doberge cake, “sold her secret recipe to Gambino’s bakery,” a recipe that they’ve been loyal to ever since. 6-layers of delicious buttermilk cake separated by a custard filling and topped with rich fondant icing is something that everyone loves! They can even decorate with “Merry Christmas,” pictured, which really is the icing on the cake (punny). To find out more about Doberge Cakes, or to purchase your own, click here. 

Holiday King Cakes

King cake season is RIGHT around the corner, but Gambino’s is getting in the spirit a bit early with a specially decorated Holiday king cake! The cakes are baked fresh daily with “a sweet, special recipe Danish dough that is infused with cinnamon swirls throughout.” Purchase your own Holiday King Cake here.
