The first type we offer is a popular Mardi Gras recipe with our signature, fresh brioche dough. The dough is formed into a ring and then filled with your choice of cream cheese, fruits, nuts, or a combination of fillings. The cake is then baked to a golden hue and covered with our homemade icing and colored sugar in purple, green, and gold hues. This magical cake is then packaged with Mardi Gras beads and the beloved plastic baby that’s inserted before serving for a hidden surprise.
The second type of King Cake we offer is a traditional French recipe, also known as La Galette des Rois. This round puff pastry is filled with delectable almond marzipan, a divine confection consisting of sugar or honey and ground almonds. This cake variety should be heated in the oven and served warm or with coffee, for a delightful breakfast treat, no one will ever forget.
These sinfully delicious cakes are aptly named for the biblical kings that visited the Christ Child and are popularly served throughout the entire season of Mardi Gras.
