Lawd, I should be ashamed of this post. There is so much going on in the world today and in the blogsphere that I really should be writing about some social, political or moral issue. But, I am from NOLA and I am a true New Orleanian (in other places people eat to live, in New Orleans we live to eat!)so, right now the only thing I can think of is….. A KING CAKE!!! It’s getting near Mardi Gras time and the city is preparing, bleaches are up and king cakes have hit the bakeries.
I have had king cakes from just about every bakery around here and there is this one place that has the some of the best king cakes around. They have yet to pump out any cakes that weren’t flavorful or moist. People start lining up for these cakes as soon as the bakery opens and usually around 10 am they are sold out! My favorite king cake place is,
Manny Randazzos King Cakes are the best!!!!! They have all sorts of flavors but, I like the original king cake without all of those extra fillings. They ship anywhere in the USA so, if anyone wants to try a king cake or, if anyone is from this area and is feeling a little home sick, get yourself a cake from Randazzos, you won’t be disappointed.
