Is king cake the new pumpkin spice?
Mardi Gras isn’t just in New Orleans or Mobile, and that goes for king cakes, too.
People drive to New Orleans East for a flaky king cake from Dong Phuong or a king cake on a stick in Slidell. They have strong opinions about which is better: Haydel’s or Randazzo’s.
But there’s delicious king cake on the Mississippi Coast, too, and the Sun Herald wants to celebrate that.
