BATON ROUGE, La (BRPROUD) — Friday marks the start of the Carnival season, which means bakeries like Gambinos in Baton Rouge will start selling hundreds of king cakes daily. 

Based out of New Orleans, Gambino’s has been making king cakes for more than 70 years. In Baton Rouge, the bakery hires a special crew to make about 800 king cakes each day. 

If you cannot make it to the store or want to send one to someone out of state, the team can ship king cakes all over the country.

Gambino’s is located at 8646 Goodwood Boulevard. You can order online here.
