As part of running this site I make it my business to try a lot of different Northshore King Cakes. I’ve had king cake cheesecake, the ooey-gooey king cake from Lola, the award-winning cakes from Sugar Love and the Cocoa Bean in Hammond, french-style king cakes and more.
I recently spotted my first-ever chocolate king cake however, and I knew I had to check it out. Krummel’s Mandeville Bake Shop is offering the Voodoo King Cake this year. For 27.50 you get a cake made with sweet chocolate dough filled with chocolate cream cheese and browning bits. It’s also topped with chocolate fudge, brownie bits, and pecans. And, of course, granulated sugar.
I will say that it’s a little weird to see a chocolate king cake. It confuses the eye. That aside, it’s a pretty good cake. It is VERY sweet. All the pieces work together nicely and no one who tried it had anything bad to say. The dough is a little more cake than bread but that doesn’t bother me.
Krummel’s Bake Shop has been in the king cake business a long time. They’ve been on the Northshore since 1986 and they always have a ton of options on offer. My favorite thing that they offer are the old-fashioned Brioche-style king cakes that remind me of the ones served at McKenzie’s. Regardless of whether or not you are looking for a chocolate king cake I definitely think they are worth a visit!
