There has been one of these bad boys in the office nearly every day. No wonder this state is so fat.

Jesus Christ.

I haven't even had a donut in months.

We have a contractor in NOLA that usually sends us one. Delicious.

Are you complaining?

Participated in the consumption of one from Rouse's this past weekend.

Yum.


Don't choke on the baby.

This is probably is as large of a kingcake you can buy.  Usually the ones we get in the office are about 2/3 the size.

Every few years I will pick up one of those.  I'm sure our local versions aren't as good as the original though.

Dang I have never seen one of those befor.  Is it like a giant donut?  So is it a LA thing?  I may need to order one for the family.

I had a piece once at an ex's college dorm, was like wtf when I bit down on a baby.  I had never heard of this.



I think they were pissed they wasted the baby on me.

They're popular in Mobile, Al., too.  Pretty much anywhere Mardi Gras is celebrated, I would imagine.  They're more like a cinnamon roll on the inside, but they can have filling in them, too.

When you get the baby, you have to buy the next cake.

It's more like a giant cinnamon roll covered in icing but there are a lot of different bakers that make their version and all are a little bit different.

These guys make my favorite version: https://www.randazzokingcake.com/categories/King-Cakes and https://www.kingcakes.com/

Even if y'all weren't dating the next year you should have sent one.

It's considered good form.

Good to know now...  They didn't tell me that so I feel absolved. And no I wasn't dating the following year and they were probably washed out and back home anyway.

You nailed me with that first link... saw one picture of theirs and I had to order it.




If it tastes half as good as it looks, I'll be a repeat customer.

Three of these showed up at work today. The first one and a half were gone in a matter of minutes.

Around here it's called Rosca de Reyes.









The red, yellow, and green things are candied nopalitos (slices of prickly pear cactus).

One of my development teams added a feature into our mobile app that during Mardi Gras if you shook your phone King Cake Babies would dance on the screen.  We had some people who aren't familiar with these babies and thought it was creepy so we cut it out.

Get that disgusting nasty white crap off that cake. Apricot glaze and the colored sugar only.
Pecan praline & cream cheese ftw!
Link Posted: 1/19/2015 2:25:34 PM EDT
Randazzos is my favorite, but difficult to get over there when the line isn't out of the door.  So, on Friday, I picked up a Caluda King Cake from Coffee Cottage Catering in Elmwood, and it was amazing.  There were only 3 cakes left as it was nearly 4 pm and luckily they had 1 "flavor of the week" left, which is what I wanted to try: White Chocolate Bread Pudding.  I will try their other cakes.

OK, even though I live North of the Mason Dixon Line, I don't think I'm a Yankee.  I'm from California, and if you are from California you aren't much of anything .  So what is the deal with the babies.  I saw that in the Captain's photo with the babana.  Help me out?

I was in Philly for work last year, and it seemed like you couldn't turn around without seeing pretzels.    You guys must love those things.

It's supposed to be good luck to get it, but mainly we use it as a way to determine who has to buy the next one.  Due to law suits, most places leave the baby out to the side now a days and leave the purchaser to stick it in the king cake.  


Here's a bit more info on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_cake#Trinket
