King Cake Guide

By Tiffny Harris

Here in New Orleans when we really love something we find a way to eat it. It’s Mardi Gras time and the baking and devouring of King Cakes is a tradition here in New Orleans. Beginning on King’s Day and running until Fat Tuesday, more than 500,000 king cakes are sold in New Orleans and another 50,000 are shipped out-of-state. Here are our staff picks for the best king cakes in the city. So take a bite, watch out for the baby and let the good times roll.
