King Cakes, King Cake Coffee, King Cake Vodka...

It's King Cake Season in New Orleans - Update:

GELATO:  I just learned there's even a King Cake Gelato  at Brocata'

COFFEE:    In addition to the traditional (and creatively non-traditional) King Cakes in New Orleans, the King Cake flavor is also available in liquid form.  Both PJ's and CC's coffeeshops have brewed-in King Cake flavor coffee, a creamy cinnammon-ish taste, in addition to actual King Cakes.  And flavored King Cake coffee is also available on the internet.

VODKA:    And for something with a kick beyond sugar and caffeine, there's even a  King Cake flavored vodka .

ON-LINE KING CAKE STUFF:  If you want to bake your own, King Cake Mix is available on-line, where you can also find children's books with a  King Cake theme.    There's also a  King Cake maternity shirt with a Contains Baby Warning over a King Cake.  One website offers a decorative King Cake Fragrance Lamp and although no specifc King Cake fragrance is listed, among the selections is a cinnamon/vanilla which sounds about right.

BACK TO THE CAKE:    Actual King Cakes in New Orleans are available in more and more versions.  Check out these King Cake sources and taste test for yourself before the season ends.   It's a short season this year, since Mardi Gras is so early.
