While supplies last, Mardi Gras King Cakes will be available at LaSalle Bakery. They have two locations at Admiral and Smith Streets.
The original aerial shot of this cake was posted on the LaSalle Bakery Facebook page by happy customer Donna Clemence whose husband went out first thing this morning to pick it up. It looks perfect: the colors, the doubloons, the fleur-de-lys, the mask, and the traditional baby appears to be making a break for it. (If I was an attorney specializing in baked goods — this is what I would recommend.)
About this image: I had to reformat the photo, but this is a little weirder than I had anticipated. But what the heck, it’s Mardi Gras! Thank you Donna.
If your favorite bakery also has King Cakes on offer, feel free to comment.
