Carnival season, better known by the day it culminates in–Mardi Gras–is upon us. And what does that mean? KING CAKE! Sure, throws from parade floats and court presentations at balls are neat, but I’m most interested in the season’s tastiest treat (rhyme intended).
So who makes the best king cake in Baton Rouge? NOLA.com/baton-rouge entertainment writer Chelsea Brasted and I are determined to find out, so much so that we’re conducting a blind taste test this Monday in the lobby of One American Place (our office building). If you’re in the area, you should stop by, taste some king cake and cast your ballot. But first, click here to vote in the Baton Rouge king cake poll I created and learn more about the blind taste test. Your votes will help determine which bakeries we include in the taste test.
I hope you find yourself eating king cake this weekend! See you back here Monday.
