The 2021 Carnival season may look a little different, but it will taste as sweet as ever! That's because NOCCA's Culinary Arts department is partnering with Cake Cafe's Chef Steve Himelfarb and locally owned French Truck Coffee to produce some outstanding king cakes, all made from scratch!
Cake Cafe's beloved Apple and Goat Cheese King Cake: Cake Cafe's doors in the Faubourg Marigny may be closed, but Chef Steve Himelfarb's famous king cake lives on! Filled with apples, vanilla, cinnamon, goat cheese, and cream cheese, it's decorated with a purple, green, and gold vanilla glaze, which is sweetened with a touch of local honey.
French Truck Cafe au Lait King Cake: This sweet-dough king cake features three kinds of coffee with a cream cheese filling. Chef Dana D'Anzi Tuohy, chair of NOCCA's Culinary Arts department, developed it in collaboration with Chef Steve Himelfarb and French Truck Coffee.
Raspberry Cream Cheese: It's all there in the name: this king cake combines tangy, tart raspberries with cool cream cheese filling. We launched it as a limited-edition cake, but it quickly became a fan favorite, so we've added it to our permanent menu!
PLEASE NOTE: We don't offer shipping for king cakes. Sorry.
HOW TO ORDER
Just select the flavor you want and the date you want to pick up your cake. Pickup will be in Press Street Station (at the corner of Royal and Homer Plessy Way) Wednesdays - Sundays, with a special Lundi Gras pickup on February 15. Pickup will be from 8am to noon each day.
Please note: cutoff time for next-day orders is 3pm. For example, if you want to pick up a cake on Friday, you'll need to order it by Thursday at 3pm. We strongly encourage you to order early, because we may sell out in advance of the 3pm deadline!
Our king cakes are made to order, so we can't offer refunds after the purchasing window has closed. If you'd like a refund, please email us no later than 3pm on the day before pickup. Our address is email@example.com. Cakes that aren't picked up within 48 hours of their scheduled pick-up time will be scrapped.
WHERE ELSE TO FIND OUR KING CAKES
If you prefer to pick up a king cake on your own schedule, visit French Truck Coffee shops (FrenchTruckCoffee.com) or the King Cake Hub (KingCakeHub.com). We'll keep their shelves fully stocked!
