New Orleans King Cake
The King Cake is a sacred confection eaten between Epiphany and Mardi Gras. In different parts of the world, there are different traditions for the type of cake, the filling, and the trinket that’s hidden in the center. New Orleans king cakes take after the Southern French tradition of a ring-shaped cake made with a rich yeasted bread similar to brioche with a cinnamon cream cheese filling. A little plastic baby is hidden inside the cake, and whoever gets the slice with the baby wins. You get to be king or queen for the day and are also responsible for bringing the next cake to keep the party going — and we have just the cake you'll want to bring at TRYST, THE DINER, OPEN CITY, TRYST at the PHILLIPS, THE COUPE, and OPEN CITY at the NATIONAL CATHEDRAL!
