King cakes are at the heart of every Mardi Gras celebration. The rich, buttery pastry encasing the cream cheese and mixed fruit filling can make anyone’s mouth water. Nothing stands out more than the vibrant purple, yellow, and green striped frosting circulating the ring-shaped cake, getting everyone excited to celebrate.
As a Louisianian, you know just how important the perfect cake is. Every slice should have the ideal pastry-to-filling-to-icing ratio with a fair shot at containing the plastic baby.
King cakes celebrate Three Kings Day, originating from a Biblical story in which the three wise men visited the young Jesus to shower him with gifts. Today, everyone in New Orleans flocks to their favorite grocery stores and bakeries for king cakes for the wonderful flavor and a chance to kick off the carnival season.
At Acquistapace’s Wine & Cheese Wine and Cheese, we source our king cakes from all the most well-renowned bakeries in New Orleans.
