Mardi Gras King Cakes

Order Mardi Gras King Cakes Here

Mardi Gras King Cakes are true to New Orleans heritage. The story dates back to the birth of Christ. Twelve days after his birth, he was visited by the three wise men that brought gifts to honor the new king. We rejoice for Christ’s birth and again on the Epiphany (January 6th) to honor the three wise men that are also called kings.

To honor them, people made sweet cakes and ate them on the twelfth night. Alas, they were named King Cakes. Now, Mardi Gras and that tradition are a little different. In New Orleans, we still have those delicious King Cakes, but ours are a little flashier and maybe even tastier! After all, they are Mardi Gras King Cakes.

We stuff them with all kinds of scrumptious fillings and then cover them with creamy icing. Try our Praline Pecan or Apple! For a little zing, we add some colors... the traditional Mardi Gras colors: green, yellow and purple. Oh, and to make it even more interesting, here in New Orleans, we get to eat them from the twelfth night all the way up to Mardi Gras. But, hey folks, on Ash Wednesday, that’s it for Mardi Gras King Cakes until next year, so log onto ekingcakes.com today and order your King Cakes to send to loved ones who aren’t fortunate enough to be here in the heart of Mardi Gras. We have a simple ordering page with options of plain Mardi Gras King Cakes or filled Mardi Gras King Cakes. You can also check out our different shipping arrangements. If you are really in a hurry to get your King Cakes, we can even ship overnight to anywhere in the continental United States. Don’t take too long! The season will be over way too soon!
