King Cake Help

soloudinhere | Feb 16, 2009 12:49 PM

I was in New Orleans probably 10 years ago just after Mardi Gras. We went to a Mardi Gras museum (I think it might have been Mardi Gras World?) and they served us king cake. I can't for the life of me remember who the baker was, but it was a moist cake and it had an actual cinnamon filling in it, not just cinnamon flavored dough.

I'd like to order the same cake, or a similar style, but I can't tell from looking online which cakes have an actual cinnamon FILLING and which just have cinnamon dough. I am envisioning a king cake that is very similar to a swirled cinnamon coffee cake in taste and filling.

Does anyone know where I could find a king cake like this to order for delivery (I live a few thousand miles from New Orleans these days.)

Thanks so much! You'll be helping to revive some family nostalgia!
