Our Story
Starts With Family.

Manny is a second generation baker learning his baking skills and the secret formula of the Randazzo Family's recipe for their famous king cakes from his Father, Manuel Randazzo Sr.  In 1965 Manuel Sr., along with his father and brothers, opened the renowned Randazzo's HiLan Bakery in Chalmette, Louisiana.

Manny's King Cakes have become so popular that in the 2012 Mardi Gras Season, his Pecan Praline King Cake was voted the best king cake after a series of taste tests at several local bakeries. It was crowned as the "King Cake King."

A New Orleans Tradition

In 1992 Manny opened his full-service bakery under the direction of his father.  Because the Family's King Cake was in such high demand and sought after, in 1995 Manny decided to devote his business exclusively to the  baking of their famous king cakes.  This business not only grew from the great demand locally, but has spread all over the country with overnight delivery to share this Mardi Gras season tradition.
