Looking at their website brings back such memories. Growing up in New Orleans, we'd have doberge cakes all the time as our birthday cakes. I was just wondering why I've never had it elsewhere so I looked it up. I had no idea doberge cakes originated in New Orleans. It's basically cake layered with dessert pudding in between (it's better than it sounds). In 1946, Gambino's bought the recipe from the woman who created it so you know theirs is the real deal. It's now considered the birthday cake of New Orleans.
