Looking for a place in DC or MOCO to buy a king cake for next week. Prefer less sweet versions. Thanks,

          Thanks Bob. This is so useful.

        2. Be careful, though: "king cakes" at some French-style bakeries in Baltimore -- at least at Patisserie Poupon and Bonaparte -- are not New Orleans king cake.

          1. The Giant in Ashburn has them. Of dubious quality, of course. But they are available.

              I bought a Giant King Cake years ago for my office after I got the slice with the baby the previous year. It wasn't horrible.
