Time to write about King Cakes

Yes, I have been putting it off. I waited until I officially had my first bite of king cake. Today was the day and let me tell you I started with the wrong one. I won't even say which it was.

Next stop is Nonna Randazzo's and to get it right this time!

Anyway, Nola.com ran this article about King Cakes that is a great article for any out of towner to read! Get more on the local addiction to what i consider just a silly coffee cake - read my girl NolaNote's post on king cakes.

New Orleans has some wacky traditions and this fanfare over coffee cake never seizes to amaze me! (But I do enjoy them! He he!)

DYING to know where the bad one was. Could I sweet talk you into emailing it to me?

P.S. Thanks for the pimping!

P.P.S. Yes, we do loves us some king cake here in NOLA. I think it's just that we grew up on them and they are not offered year round...

Yes, I think much of the fascination is that you can only get then during carnival. When I moved away, and found you could mail order them any time of year, I just couldn't. It woudl be sacrilige.
