During Mardi Gras season, tradition takes the (king) cake

During Mardi Gras season, tradition takes the (king) cake | New Orleans Local | Scoop.it
Boston takes the cakes to his mother in Baton Rouge on the weekends — she's loyal to the Randazzo brand. [...] Mardi Gras ends Feb. 28, king cakes are everywhere. Neighborhood bars serve them — nothing goes better with beer than dough, cinnamon and frosting. [...] few places take the tradition as seriously as New Orleans, where everyone seems to be wiping the signature colored sugar from their mouths. Todd Duvio's family moved away years ago but hand carried four king cakes on the return flight to California after Christmas. Jackie-Sue Scelfo, a Gambino's Bakery spokeswoman, says it's often based on what people were brought up on, what Mom and Grandma ate. McKenzie's, a longtime New Orleans bakery chain, inspired that kind of loyalty with a fairly simple king cake with no fillings, brushed with simple syrup and sprinkled with colored sugar. Maggie Scales, executive pastry chef for the Donald Link Restaurant Group, moved to the city six years ago, knowing nothing of king cakes or the rush surrounding them. [...] she oversees a pastry empire that includes traditional French-style king cake (two layers of puff pastry with almond cream in the middle and none of that American colored sugar), a more New Orleans-style king cake in an oval shape, and the Elvis king cake which is as decadent as the king himself.
