Who Makes the Best King Cake in the Ark-La-Tex?
Get ready, Mardi Gras season is upon us. Here in Louisiana, King Cake is no joke. We take the delicious dessert so seriously we even have King Cake soda by Abita and King Cake ice cream by Blue Bell. There are many places that sell King Cake, up until last year I had only tried King Cake from one place. Tubbs Cajun Gifts has what I feel is one of the best King Cakes in town.
I bought some Tubb's King Cake for friends and they swear it's the best so now I have to purchase a King Cake before I visit them in Dallas. Since Tubbs, I have tried, Lyla's. Lowder's, Claudia's (sold at PJ's Coffee), and Southern Maid Donuts King Cakes. Can I just say, they are all amazing so far? Is there such a thing as a bad King Cake?
My co-worker Greg Atoms tried the Southern Maid Donuts King Cake for the first time yesterday and he swears the competition is over. His exact words were, "With apologies to whoever it may concern: THE KING CAKE GAME IS OVER.
Southern Maid has the greatest king cake of all time. ALL. TIME."
