Carnival season is here, and so are king cakes! Once again, NOCCA's Culinary Arts department has teamed up with Cake Cafe's Chef Steve Himelfarb to produce three outstanding cakes:
  • Cake Cafe's beloved Apple and Goat Cheese King Cake: Chef Steve's famous king cake is 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.
  • Raspberry Cream Cheese King Cake: This king cake pairs the tart taste of raspberries with a cool cream cheese filling. It’s a perfect Carnival-time treat!
  • Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free King Cake: This cinnamon-flavored, bundt-style treat is ideal for anyone who loves the taste of a classic New Orleans king cake. (Scroll down for ingredients) Sorry, we have sold out of gluten-free cakes for the season! If you've already ordered one, never fear--it'll be ready for pickup on the date you selected. If you haven't, you can still find them at King Cake Hub!


Select a flavor 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) Fridays - Sundays, with an additional pickups on Lundi Gras, Monday, February 20. Pickup will be from 9am-1pm each day.

Please note: All king cakes are made to order. Cutoff time for orders is 3pm two days before the desired pickup. For example, if you want to pick up a cake on Friday, you'll need to order it by Wednesday at 3pm. We strongly encourage you to order early, because we may sell out in advance of the 3pm deadline!

TO ORDER FOR SHIPPING (NOTE: OUR FINAL SHIPMENT WAS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14. You can still purchase a cake for pick-up, though!)

This year, we're offering shipping for king cakes on Tuesdays! Just select a flavor and the Tuesday you want it shipped. We offer several UPS options, though we recommend choosing Next Day or 2nd Day Air to ensure freshness. The cutoff time for placing a shipped order is 3pm on the Sunday before the ship date.

Please note that our Apple and Goat Cheese, Raspberry Cream Cheese, and Strawberry Cream Cheese king cakes aren't pre-iced when shipped. Instead, three colors of icing are included so that you can ice your cake when it arrives. Let your creativity flow and decorate your cake with friends and family--and share the results with us! Our Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cinnamon king cake is never iced.

Important: We promise to ship your item(s) on your chosen date using the UPS service you selected at checkout. Unfortunately, we can't control UPS's performance. Your cake(s) should arrive on time and in perfect condition, but there is always a chance that they won't. We don’t offer refunds for items that arrive late or damaged, but on the off-chance that should happen, you can file a claim with UPS here. Thank you for understanding.


Our king cakes are made to order, so we can't offer refunds after the purchasing window has closed.
