Tis The Season - King Cake Season

Posted by Haydel's Bakery on Jan 4th 2018

In New Orleans, Mardi Gras is the holiday. And we’ve spent the last 58 years making sure Haydel’s is the king cake.

The Mardi Gras menu may seem simple – King Cake, and lots of it – but you have a lot to choose from. Whether you’re sending a little taste of home to a loved one missing Mardi Gras this year or just feeding your sweet tooth, we’ve got a king cake package for you.

King of Carnival King Cake Package

For the full Mardi Gras experience, the King of Carnival package has everything you could want – including UPS Next Day Air Shipping to make sure it arrives fresh. A full handmade king cake (in any flavor), Arthur Hardy Mardi Gras Guide, king cake history scroll, French Market coffee, Haydel’s specialty bead pack, a handcrafted porcelain collectible (when in stock), a Mardi Gras CD, Mardi Gras poster, and a Mardi Gras cup.

Queen of Carnival King Cake Package

Like “Mardi Gras in a box.” The Queen of Carnival package comes with our famous king cake (in any flavor), an Arthur Hardy Mardi Gras Guide, a king cake history scroll, French Market coffee, beads, a handcrafted porcelain collectible (when in stock) – and UPS Next Day Air Shipping to ensure it arrives fresh.

Piece of Cake

Don’t let the name fool you, this package has a full Haydel’s King Cake and more. Get your cake (in any flavor), a king cake history scroll, and a handcrafted porcelain collectible (when in stock). And like all of our king cake packages, UPS Next Day Air Saver Shipping is included to be sure your cake arrives fresh.

Makin’ Groceries King Cake Package

This Mardi Gras goodie bag includes a king cake (in any flavor), French Market coffee, 8 oz bag of Jambalaya Mix “Cook Me Somethin’ Mister™, the Makin Groceries mini card game, a handcrafted porcelain collectible (when in stock), and UPS Next Day Air Saver Shipping to ensure your cake arrives fresh.

The Black & Gold Package

Who Dat?! Just because it’s Mardi Gras doesn’t mean your cake has to be purple, green, and gold. The Black & Gold Package comes with a Saints-themed king cake, a king cake history scroll, and a handcrafted porcelain collectible (when in stock).

And like all of our king cake packages, UPS Next Day Air Saver Shipping is included to be sure your cake arrives fresh.

Cake Deets

Our king cakes serve about 30-35 if you’re cutting one-inch pieces. Actual mileage may vary depending on how big of a slice you like.

We offer lots of flavors and varieties. Our traditional and filled king cakes are made of Danish dough, hand braided with cinnamon and sugar, baked to perfection, topped with fondant icing and adorned lavishly with purple, green and gold sugar. Our filled cakes have filling on top of the braided dough. “Da Parish” comes with purple, green, and gold sugar baked on top of the cake. After baking, it is generously drizzled with icing and adorned with sprinkles.

Aren’t these kind of expensive? Yes and no. They’re certainly more than if you bought them in store, but the added cost covers UPS Next Day Air Saver Shipping. We build the shipping into the price for a few reasons: When someone buys a king cake from us, it has got to be fresh. And no one likes that surprise price jump when you get all the way to the end of the checkout process.
