    Got one of these last year and thought it was extremely good. In fact I couldn’t quite decide whether it was indeed a manny randazzo’s king cake or not. Either way, it was absolutely delicious and cheaper than ordering one through randazzo’s.

    My husband is from Louisiana and I am from West Virginia. I had never tried King Cake so my mother-in-law sent us one from this company. My husband says its exactly what he has always remembered, and IT WAS DELICIOUS!

    My daughter is the child of a Louisiana man living in Virginia. Every year we bring a king cake into class to discuss the history and significance of Mardi Gras to her culture, and they just love it 🙂
    The cake is DELICIOUS and they ship to Virginia with no issues at all.

    These King Cakes are FANTASTIC! I lived in New Orleans for several years and missed the tradition of giving King Cake parties (and eating them). These cakes are not only authentic, but the company was a breeze to work with. I highly recommend them!

    Arrived in great condition. This was the freshest King Cake ever! Soft, tasty and great looking! Highly recommend.

    I ordered two King Cakes for my office in Springfield, Missouri. Everyone was so excited because King Cakes are difficult to find here. It was wonderful, just like I remember them from my childhood in the south! They were delivered right when they were promised/scheduled. Thank you!

    I had two King Cakes shipped to Cleveland, OH to share with my office. They arrived on time and incredibly fresh! Everyone here loved them. Thank you!
    P.S. We’ll be repeat customers for sure.

    The traditional King Cakes (3) arrived on the date we requested, Feb. 2. We placed them in the freezer and took them out this morning to thaw and decorate for our work Mardi Gras lunch (in the San Francisco area). They were so well received and were delicious! My only hint would be to label the outside of the shipping box as perishable. Our mail room almost missed getting these to me by the end of the day.

    The cake arrived the day we wanted for our party and was fresh and delicious and everyone enjoyed it. We got the traditional and next year we are to venture out and try a different one!

    This is the 3rd time ordering from King King Cakes all the way out here in Los Angeles and the have been consistently excellent, arriving right on time and having survived shipping in one piece.

    We were slightly disappointed last year, when we realized there was no baby in the cake. (?!?) But, we were pleasantly surprised by our little bronze baby this year. The beads and coins are a fun touch. Will definitely be ordering again.

    I just had to write and let you know how GREAT the King Cake that I ordered from you was. On the spur of the moment, I ordered a traditional cake (1 week before Fat Tuesday) to share with co-workers at a staff meeting. Many of them had never had a king cake or know what one was as we’re in the mountains of North Carolina. I was a little concerned about the cake getting here in time when I got several messages about it possibly not getting here by 2/12 which is when I needed it. I needn’t have worried. It was at my home Monday afternoon when I got home from work. When I opened the box to look at it, I smelled the wonderful cinnamon! It was easy to get the glaze and the colored sugar on the cake before serving it as well.

    After explaining to everyone what a king cake was and the first few people trying it, just about everyone had a piece and declared it delicious! It certainly was. I worried that the cake might be dry, but it was not. My co-workers are all ready to have me order another one next year. I’m not completely sure that I can wait that long. YUMMY!

    Ordered my first King Cake from this bakery and had it shipped to Oklahoma. Oh my gosh! This cake arrived so fresh and delicious. It reminded me of my childhood in Louisiana. I appreciate how the icing is packed separately so that the cake stays fresh and intact. Soooo good! We will make this a tradition and order one every year!

    The King Cake I ordered was great. I received rave reviews. It was delivered on time the date I requested. There were easy instructions to follow to finish decorating. I will be ordering every year from King King Cakes!

    We are soooo happy we found King for their king cakes!!! We were throwing a Mardi Gras party and needed a good traditional cake, problem is we live in Ohio and we needed it in 4 days! King cakes came to the rescue. Not only was the cake so delicious and moist (as opposed to local grocery store junk), it was easy to serve, got here within 4 days (to Ohio!) and most importantly our guests LOVED IT! We have family from New Orleans so we kind of know when we taste a good cake and this one definitely was A++. We will definitely be ordering from them again in the future. Highly recommended!!! Thank you!

    This is the best king cake I have ever had, it’s still good 4 days after receiving, amazing! I was afraid it would dry out, but it has not & has the best flavor ever! Awesome!! My husband took one to his office & it was a big hit.

    They provided the King Cake on the date that they promised and as usual it was wonderful. This was my second year ordering cakes. This year we order two, the traditional and the cream cheese and both were great. They can count on us as customers when the next Maddi Grau comes around.

    I loved my King Cake – very fresh and delicious! We did not receive our cake in time for our party and although I was disappointed about that- King King Cakes totally took care of us. Because they handled this so well, I will order again. Thanks again!

  22. Kristine

    Tastes so good and fresh so I definitely would recommend them!!
    My only disappointment was that I got it as a fun gift for Wyoming family who had never had king cake before and unfortunately there was no baby inside for them to find. I guess it was forgotten. 😢

  23. Caitlin (verified owner)

    I ordered my cake yesterday around lunchtime and received it this evening around 5 o’clock. I was very impressed with the next day shipping. I did not realize I was going to need to put the icing and toppings on the cake, but that was a fun process to do. The cake taste amazing! I was excited to be the one in the group to find the baby as well. I will definitely order another cake from KingKingCakes again

    We’ve ordered king cakes in the past from various bakeries, and this year it was KingKingCakes. So glad we discovered this bakery! We were hosting a Cajun-style lunch for friends who had never tried a king cake. I decided to stick with the Traditional, and the cake was one of the best we’ve ever had. The level of sweetness was balanced, and the freshness was so impressive. With this bakery, it’s all about the cake.

  25. David Andrus

    We received our King Cake as a gift and LOVED it! We live in Missouri and it was shipped to us, enjoyed every bite.

  26. Kristen (verified owner)

    We order two traditional king cakes every year for our company Mardi Gras celebration. They arrive on the day we pick and are always super moist and yummy! Will continue to order and enjoy them!

  27. Brooke Hinton

    My Mom, who lives in New Orleans, sent us this king cake all the way to Los Angeles for my son’s birthday. We received it on Friday and did not open or eat it until Monday afternoon. It was absolutely delicious, fresh, and not one bit dry. We have decided this is our new yearly tradition for his birthday. Thank you!!

  28. Jerry

    Received my King Cake on time and perfect condition. This was by far the best and freshest King Cake I have ever eaten. Very moist and succulent, blasting with flavor and absolutely expertly done. I don’t usually write reviews, but this was so good, so fresh and so tasteful, I had to let others know!

  29. Robert Endler

    Received this as a birthday gift recently for the second year in a row, and like last year was HIGHLY disappointed.
    This cake is nothing more than a yellow cake in an oval, it lacks the traditional cinnamon inside the cake and honestly the having to ice it yourself is not 3 minutes and a total waste of time.
    To be fully honest, I wouldn’t even share this cake with friends in DC b/c I don’t want them to think this is what a traditional King Cake is like and it went in the trash. I’ll be ordering from one of the true New Orleans bakeries and getting a real King Cake for myself.

    A year late in writing this, but our family loved this King Cake last year so much that I am ordering three flavors this year. Cake arrived on time in good condition. It takes just a few minutes to add the colored sugars so that is not a problem. Anticipating another successful order. Thanks, King Cakes!!

    I ordered a king cake for my mother in law’s birthday, she received it today and I am totally disgusted that she received a plain cake, and had to put the icing and sprinkles on herself. Is this a joke……I did not order a do-it-yourself king cake and nowhere on the website does it say that it comes in this fashion. I will ask for a full refund, not only for the ridiculous cake but the full shipping price which was just as expensive as the cake.
