MARDI GRAS SEASON has arrived! King Cake hidden with the “lucky” plastic baby is the perfect sweet treat. Read up on where to get your hands on the festive goods.
On offer are two delicious king cakes made with sweet brioche, covered in royal icing, and topped with purple, green and gold sugar. Even sweeter: $5 from each king cake sold will benefit Sky High for Kids. Choose from traditional cinnamon or raspberry cream cheese ($45). Additionally, customers can buy their own DIY King Cake Kit or send one to a patient at Texas Children's Hospital. Find King Cakes in stores until Feb. 21, or preorder for easy pick-up. Order online here until Feb. 17.
According to this stalwart sweet emporium, there’s nothing a king cake can’t fix. Place your preorder for pick-up, grab your beads and Mardi Gras treats – including King Cakes and festively decorated sugar cookies – and let the good times roll.
At Lagniappe, where Revival Market used to be, pre-orders for king cake have begun! Brightly decorated traditional cinnamon and sugar flavored half sheet cakes ($25) made from a family recipe serve 12-16. When you stop by for pickup, be sure to order Lagniappe's festively sprinkled King Cake Latte for good measure.
Three Brothers Bakery
Go traditional with king cake ($20) or pay extra to get it stuffed with cream cheese and praline, strawberry or raspberry filling. The iconic bakery also sells petit fours and fleur de lis decorated and dipped Mardi Gras cookies.
There is a plethora of options at Memorial Bakery near Memorial City Mall: A plain king cake starts at just $18.00; opt for raspberry or strawberry filling for $10 more. Vanilla-iced shortbread cookies in the shapes of Mardi Gras masks and flour de lis are $26 per dozen. Chocolate and vanilla petit fours are available by the half-dozen, as are our fave — towering, fluffy, butter-cream-frosted cupcakes with glittering swirls of purple, gold and green.
