The Queen of King Cakes - Sucre's King Cake Is Back!

Yeah, Baby!

I've heard all the raves about Sucre Bakery in New Orleans for years. And while they turn out all sorts of delicious baked goods, next to the macaroons, they may be most noted for their "King Cake."

If you don't know the story behind the "King Cake," you must "google" it. There are too many variations on the theme for me to expound here.

However, I have had at least two different varieties of King Cake from different bakeries in Louisiana. Sucre's is one-of-a-kind.

I would even dare to call it a contemporary take on King Cake. Everything from its beautiful finish (if I may use that word to describe it) to the moist texture inside puts it in a category all alone.

I especially love that it's not too sweet, extremely moist, and doesn't make a mess when I eat it. The cake I sampled had no filling and it didn't need it!

Order yours today. You might even be able to get it in time for the Saints game this weekend.

Who Dat, Say Dat, Sucre Can't Do Dat?

"World famous Sucre King Cake. Voted 2011 BEST King Cake by a Washington Post blind taste test. Sucre's signature buttery danish pastry is sweetened by cinnamon and raw cane sugar then filled with a creole cream cheese filling. Serves 8-10 people. Long live the king!"

  1. OMG!!! This is the best King Cake!!! The taste and texture is great. In addition, the finish is elegant, sophisticated and Louisiana Fancy. None of that multi-colored, heavy frosting normally associated with a traditional king cake. I was amazed at how wonderful it holds its taste and texture when a refrigerated cold, leftover slice is wrapped in Saran Wrap and microwaved for 10 seconds. Talk about with Morning Coffee!!! This takes the cake!
