King Cake

Although everyone seems to just go for the King Cake they grew up with, I've been trying a few. Gambino's--terrible. Threw most of it away. Tried Sucre--was disappointed. Boulangerie has a very good traditional New Orleans style version I tried last year. Today tried one of the French style--puff pastry with an almond filling. Tasty. Got a KC from Maple Street. When they rang me up, it was an eye-popping $27. However, it was nice--braided, with real creme cheese flavor and very fresh, not too much sugar on top. Perhaps the best New Orleans style cake I've had. Looking forward to trying the new Zulu cake and perhaps one of the ones from Domenica.
