With Mardi Gras season in full swing, you'll find just about every type and flavor you can think of. Not to be left out, Tabasco has teamed up with Sucre to make the 'Sugar + Spice King Cake' made with TABASCO sauce.
Today I was looking at our Twitter feed, and my boy Jim Hummel from KATC tweeted out "Alright, #NewOrleans twitter- what's the deal with these Dong Phuong King Cakes?" I was all like "What is a Dong Phuong King Cake?" I investigated it and now see it might be the ones of the best King Cakes I've never tried.
You ever wonder why you never see people eating king cake at festivals, or especially Mardi Gras parades? Cause it's so messy! Well, thanks to one Slidell based baker, messy fingers and king cake don't have to go hand in hand any longer.
These days, we don't get the little plastic baby hidden inside the cake, and I understand why completely. No one wants to choke, and no one wants to get sued. This got me thinking about what could be a revolutionary Mardi Gras idea.
There are all kinds of king cakes these days. You've got the traditional, you've got king cakes with different types of filling, and even boudin king cakes. However, The Audubon Zoo in New Orleans is offering up a type of king cake I've never heard of until today. They are offering up a "Cricket King Cake". Nope, not for the animals at the zoo, for the patrons.
The video is considered NSFW, cause how could you eat King Cake for the first time, and NOT let out some expletives!
These people from other parts of the country tried King Cake for the first time, and it's pretty awesome!
It's time to get ready for Mardi Gras, and the Krewe de Bayou's Voodoo Masquerade Mardi Gras Ball this Friday...
