The Best King Cake on the Northshore

So in years past, the writers of Northshore Parents and their friends have gotten together and sampled king cakes from across the Northshore. Then they’ve voted and we announced the Northshore’s best king cake. This year, however, we’re flipping the script and letting YOU tell us who makes the best king cake. We ran our poll for exactly one week and let our readers tell us which king cakes are the best.┬áThe east side of the parish went hard for this contest so the results may surprise you!

Number Four: Sugar Love

Normally known for her beautiful decorator cakes, Sierra at Sugar Love is also the creator of King Cake on a Stick! It comes as no surprise that this innovative baker found herself on the list. Glittery with hints of almond, Sugar Love cakes are tasty, but also uniquely hers.

Number Three: Berry Town

Berry Town Produce goes outside of produce and creates some very popular king cakes this time of year. They are widely available in Tangipahoa parish, but I’m unsure whether or not one can be purchased in St. Tammany (I’m sure the readers will let me know if there is).

Number Two: Fishers of Men

I’ve crossed the parish twice for this particular king cake and still haven’t gotten my hands on one. It’s described as “unique,” but that’s really all I know except that many, many people list this as a favorite. There’s still a week or so left in the season–maybe I’ll try another trip to Slidell and see if I can finally try on for myself.

Number One: Precious Pastries

This baker was completely off my radar when I created the poll this year, but they certain made a splash! Based out of Slidell, the owner is an Artisan Baker at Williams Sonoma Lakeside and is featured by them about every 5-6 weeks. She also has a booth at the Stennis Farmer’s Market, but locals can order through her facebook page or by phone and she’ll arrange a place to meet. I have plans to try one of these gorgeous cakes this week and I’ll be doing a full post. Her signature cake is vanilla curd and cinnamon, but Praline Pecan is also a big seller. You can drool over some more photos on her Facebook page!

Thank you, everyone for voting. I have a few new king cakes to try now and I hope you do too!

  1. Casey Bonin is an amazing home baker, mother of 4, and she makes gluten free king cakes!!

    • Really? I would LOVE a gluten free king cake since one of my sweeties can’t have gluten!

      Where can I purchase a gluten free king cake ?

      • There are no gluten free king cakes available on the northshore at a retail location. There’s a commenter here who says that Casey Bonin makes them in her home and sells them. You could try looking her up on Facebook and messaging her there.

  2. Is there a place that bakes egg-free king cakes??
