THE BOOK OF KING CAKE
New stuff this year
We have a new web site this year and we are now shipping cakes only as KITS, which means the recipient needs to ice the cake themselves.
We are not doing this to be like the self check out stores, making you do the work, lol. It's just that shipping can effect the look of the cake. You used to be able to rely on the weather to be pretty cold in Jan. & Feb but now it seems like we have these little heat waves that wreck havoc on the icing and cause all kinds of problems. So we made the decision to ship just kits. It can be a fun festive experience to do at a party or with kids. I hope you enjoy the new packaging.
We will be doing many popup flavors this year. Chantilly and Cannoli will come up once a week and crawfish or boudin will be on every Friday.
For our catering customers and king cake walk in customers we are offering soups, salads and sandwiches for take out when you show up at the bakery.

Speaking of delicious, a little about our chef and kitchen.

He has over 45 years of experience in local new orleans cuisine, is well adapt at asian, southwest, Italian, and mediterranean cuisine as well.
We try and do the little things like make all our own salad dressings, make sauces, soups, and gumbos from scratch. Not mixes or out of a can or a freezer bag. We bake most of our own breads, make all of our desserts, follow best practices to make sure your food arrives hot and the best possible condition. We use Louisiana shrimp most of the time, we use wild caught salmon, fresh LA. trout, LA crawfish when we can.
