King cakes in the twin cities

Any idea where I can get king cake in the twin cities (preferably in St Paul) for Mardi Gras party sat night?

  1. The Cajun Potluck place closed in January, so I'm blanking on resources. Cost Plus World Market carried the mix, when they first had a presence in the Twin Cities. Since then they've left and returned, and I don't know if they still do.

    Wish I could be more help.

    1. Great Harvest Bread Company - St. Paul

      534 Selby Avenue - St. Paul, MN 55102

        Great Harvast has them. Thanks for the info.

      2. In past years, Byerly's Stores has had them (you have to insert the hidden coin/baby yourself, it is not baked in) Here's their blog post from last year:

        There was a bakery in Maplewood that had them, and they were... not good.

        1. I got a wonderful one last year at the Baker's wife.

            Ohhh, good to know. I like them for cinnamon-sugar donuts; glad to hear they are recommmended for this as well.

              just called them to reserve one for Mardi Gras day. They have almond, raspberry and apricot filled cakes for $20 and they feed 20-24

              I haven't cut into it yet, but here's the king cake I got at A Baker's Wife. I can tell you it is definitely BIG.

                I got one there, too and it was delicious!

                  I got the almond filling. So good! It was dense, moist, nice amount of filling, and not too sweet.

                  Also, their service was excellent. I called the morning of Mardi Gras and they had one for me two hours later.
