A Good King Cake Recipe

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I was wondering if anyone has made a king cake before. I live near New Orleans and I have people ask me all the time, “Do you make king cake?” It is a huge tradition here and my customers say they would love it if I could make those for them too.

Oh how I love king cake!!! My 9-5 job deals with a lot of compaies in New Orleans so we get a lot of KingCake deliveries in February from the two prominant King Cake Bakeries down there and boy are they delicious! I’d love to have a recipe as well! Manny Randazzo and Haydel’s King Cakes are the BEST!

@SweetsByMonica so I am curious how your King Cake came out. did you like the recipe?

I liked the flavor. I am not sure about the texture. I thought the cake would look smoother, but overall I was pleased. This was my first foray into anything with yeast.

Thank you so much for your help!

I am not sure what you mean by it not looking smooth. Here is my King Cake from this year with that recipe. Does it look similar to what you got?

Well I am glad you at least liked the flavor and congrats on breaking down the yeast wall :)
