Rise and Shine Babes! There’s Cake!!!


Yep, there is cake. It is the season for all things Mardi Gras and King Cake is one of those things that you either know how to make it or you do not. I love Randazzo’s and Gambino’s and will always be loyal to Paul’s Pastry in Picayune.

Randazzo’s Camellia City Bakery   

This is how these lovelies come to you. My favorite is the Pecan Praline from Randazzo’s!

Another favorite of mine. They all come with beads and cups and of course a baby hidden inside,  I mean, how else do we know who buys the next one?  Here my favortie is Blueberry and Cream Cheese filled.

Of course I’m going to be loyal to Paul’s forever! A Mississippi classic and they have more flavor combinations than you could think up!  One of the first things I freaked out about in moving to Oklahoma was King Cake. Oh, don’t worry they said, there’s a bakery in town that makes them. No. No they don’t. That’s a cinnamon coffee cake and there is no baby or beads or secret Southern ingredients. Just no. So like all good people I started ordering them. Second to that is making a quick weekend trip to Randazzo’s and the drive thru daiquiri shop for  a to go cup of Strawberry goodness in a cup!

No open carry laws…..js   Try one out but make sure you’re getting authentic King Cakes. They are great for breakfast, snacks, lunch, they go well with coffee or booze, so it’s a win win!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!   Hera.

    I do miss the food in Louisiana. I was just in the NorWeLa area but still, the food was good (and was real Louisiana food, unlike these cinnamon coffee cakes passed off as king cakes, and bland fish passed off as blackened, and some kind of soupy stuff that passes itself off as gumbo….)
