Here is New Orleans, we LOVE January 6th. It signals the start of the most wonderful time of the year, the Carnival season.
I must say I do have quite an addiction to king cake. I am not a sweet eater as I prefer salty snacks, but a slice of king cake every now and then during the Carnival season is such a treat.
My very favorite is plain from Manny Randazzo’s. I am not a fan of king cakes that are filled.
I also am very fond of the king cakes from Party Palace which is located in Kenner, LA but available at our local neighborhood grocer, Zara’s.
I did enjoy a slice last night to celebrate King’s Day here in NOLA.
One word: YUMMY!
Happy Carnival Season!
Laissez les bon temps rouler, y’all!
