The Elvis {Kingcake}


New Orleans local fave, Cochon Butcher, has been enticing me with its kingcake, The Elvis, on its facebook page recently. Though I have not yet tasted it as my appetite is still not back up to par, the flavors seem quite intriguing. The Elvis is an original favor offering at Cochon Butcher this year.


The cochon begins with braided yeast bread filled with peanut butter & bananas. Yum!


A generous smear of housemade marshmallow cream cover the dough.


Look at how shiny and pretty each are.


Goodies for the top are gathered.


The candied bacon and sprinkles add to the flavors of the toppings. The top of the cake is also torched.

I just adore the use of the pig instead of the baby. It makes it all unique Cochon Butcher.


I cannot wait to try a piece or two soon! I’m not usually a fan of filled kingcakes, but this one has peaked my interest. I’ll let you know how it tastes.

Oink, oink, y’all!
