Gambino's pink velvet cake

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
there is a bakery in New Orleans called Gambinos. They used to make a pink velvet cake but no longer sell it. It is my mothers all time favorite. She is very ill and I would love to makeone for her. I am desperate for help. I have tried a few recipes from the web bit they just weren't the same.

Could you ask the owners what they used to make it?

I use cake man raven's recipe for red velvet cake, and instead of using red coloring, I use a teaspoon of gel colors, dissolved in a tablespoon of hot water. This recipe is the closest thing I have found to a real RV cake, as it uses little cocoa, and is all about the buttermilk! I am from MS gulf coast, I know of the cake icon_smile.gif I think finding their exact recipe will be impossible, and I am pretty sure they wont just give it away!

I don't know their recipe, but I have a really yummy pink velvet recipe if you'd like it...it uses white chocolate instead of cocoa powder. It's a delicate cake with a great flavour and it stands up to icing very nicely.

Did you call Gambinos to ask if they would make one special for her?

I was just thinking about their New Orleans Doberge cakes. Another thread was talking about 7 layer cakes.

I'm sorry to hear you Mom is ill. I hope she is better soon.

Anne Heap (Pink Cake Box) makes a pink velvet. I'm pretty sure it's red velvet, but with pink coloring. I did a quick Google search and another CC member said to leave out the red and use Americolor electric pink food coloring.
