Mardi Gras King Cakes available from
Saturday, February 2 to
Tuesday, February, 16 (Fat Tuesday)
**By special order only.**
Our King Cakes are baked fresh to order from a made-from-scratch dough and filled with generous amounts of cinnamon-sugar (or raspberry, chocolate, pecan or almond fillings) rolled inside. They are then allowed to rise and bake. Once the cakes have cooled, they are covered with white icing and topped with sugar in the traditional carnivale colors of purple (for justice), gold (for power) and green (for faith).
We include a feathered mask and beads,
as well as a plastic baby (to be inserted by the customer
unless special requests are made).
Our Price: $42.00 (traditional); $48.00 (raspberry, chocolate, pecan, almond)
king cake ----- n. ring shaped pastry, a cross between a coffee cake and a French pastry, it is decorated with sugar that has been dyed green, purple and gold, often filled with one or more fillings. Traditionally the king cake makes its debut on Jan. 6th, or on twelfth night, and is served through Fat Tuesday. Parties are held that involve the serving of king cake, where a small plastic baby hidden inside the pastry is sought by party guests. Tradition says that whoever finds the baby holds the next king cake party.
