Sorry, but our bakery is not accepting orders for fresh king cakes at this time. If you would like to try Mam Papaul's King Cake Mix, please click here.
King cakes are shipped fresh from our ovens in a beautifully decorated Mardi Gras box via standard FedEx next day express mail. Your package also includes FREE Mardi Gras beads, a decorative geaux cup and a history of king cakes. Also included is a plastic baby which, at your discretion, can be hidden on the underside of the cake to join in the true tradition of Mardi Gras (explain this custom to anyone who will be eating your cake).
Orders are baked & shipped on Monday through Thursday only (excluding holidays). Online orders are typically baked and shipped withing 2-3 "shipping" days after your order. For example, an online order received at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday will typically be baked and shipped on either Thursday or Monday. An online order received at 9:00 a.m. on Friday will typically be baked and shipped on Tuesday or Wednesday. Orders are not baked & shipped on a FedEx-recognized holiday or the day before the holiday. In ALL cases, king cakes are shipped the same day they are baked. Unfortunately, we can not schedule or guarantee arrival of king cakes on a specific date. All king cakes are shipped directly from the bakery. Any other items that you order will be shipped separately.
The prices listed for King Cakes include FREE FedEx standard next business day express shipping to most destinations in the continental U.S. (e.g., a order shipped on Thursday, will be delivered by FedEx prior to 5:00 p.m. on Friday). Please note that FedEx has designated a few rural locations as "remote" (those of you in these "remote" areas probably already know who you are). Deliveries to these remote areas may take an extra business day.
Shipping rates to areas outside of the continental US are so high that we only offer delivery to the 48 continental states.
Please Note: In hot and/or humid weather, the icing on the king cake may melt somewhat during transit. You may want to consider purchasing a King cake mix.
