It’s King Cake Season: it has been King Cake season since January 6 and it will be King Cake Season through February 28!
I had never even SEEN a King Cake before until I moved from Birmingham, Alabama to Hattiesburg, Mississippi in the early ’90s. But King Cake is a part of the celebration of Epiphany (January 6), Mardi Gras (literally “Fat Tuesday,” the day before Ash Wednesday) in New Orleans, throughout Louisiana, and all along the Gulf Coast. Mobile, Alabama, has the oldest Mardi Gras celebration in the United States.
The fun of Mardi Gras, including delicious King Cake, is spreading throughout the country. You can now get a fresh, homemade King Cake in Birmingham! I am making both the traditional, brown-sugar-cinnamon kind, as well as a number of filled varieties. Here is a list of the flavors I am making:
Traditional Brown Sugar-Cinnamon, Apple Cinnamon, Cherry, Blueberry, Strawberry, Cream Cheese, Cinnamon/Cream Cheese, Apple/Cream Cheese, Cherry/Cream Cheese, Blueberry/Cream Cheese, Strawberry/Cream Cheese, Pecan Praline, and Mississippi Mud (chocolate).
Place your order today! It’s not quite too late for Super Bowl Sunday, but you need to hurry! The fastest way to order is to message me: I will give you all the details. A large cake (serves 24-30 guests) is $45, and a medium cake (serves 12-20 guests) is $25. I can make gluten-free King Cakes, too: add $5 per cake for gluten-free cakes.
