I've been tasked with having a great King Cake shipped to our office in Nashville for Fat Tuesday. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    I buy mine locally from a great little French bakery in town, but my only "real" Cajun friend swears by Gambino's: http://www.gambinos.com/shop/default.php

      I use Haydel's bakery.

          Any number of places in New Orleans ship, Randazzo's, Gambino's Haydel's and many more. Who has the best is always a heated discussion in New Orleans. Check the New Orleans board and search for King Cakes, I'm sure quite a few threads will come up.

            My good friend shipped to me from NOLA a King Cake from Randazzo's Camellia City Bakery. It was packed well, and was mighty tasty!

              I live in East Nashville. I am originally from NOLA and I make king cakes for sale. They are available for order at: info@wolfegourmetcakes.com or Porter Road Butcher on the weekends. I would definitely order one to insure you get the flavor you want, or get one at all because they go fast!
