Sorry, but our bakery is not shipping fresh king cakes at this time. Please try an easy-to-prepare King cake mix.
The traditional king cake (non-filled) is the original Mardi Gras favorite. The buttery texture of the pastry is similar to brioche and reflects New Orleans' strong French influence. The traditional king cake is festively decorated with icing in Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold. Your friends and family will revel in its delicious, refined taste. Enjoy king cake with your morning coffee, as a snack, or as a tasty dessert for a true taste of New Orleans.
In true New Orleans style, king cakes are typically presented with a baby doll hidden inside. As tradition goes, the person who gets the baby in their slice is responsible for bringing a king cake to the next party.
To help you experience the Mardi Gras festivities, our king cake packages also include a Mardi Gras cup, throw beads and a flyer explaining the king cake tradition.
