The Best King Cakes In Southwest Louisiana
Tis the season for SWLA residents to gorge themselves on King Cakes. But where are the best King Cakes in Southwest Louisiana?
I was an Assistant Store Manager at Walmart in Sulphur for over eight years before getting back into radio. I was primarily over the fresh departments (bakery, produce, frozen, meat, deli, and dairy) unless it was my turn to transition over night for six months. I've made my fair share of King Cakes back in the day to try and help the bakery associates keep up with the crazy demand, especially on the weekends.
My wife and son recently bought a Bavarian cream King Cake from Rouses with chocolate icing. It was really good, but my experience was ruined after I chomped down on the baby that they had planted in my piece. I got them back however, when they weren't looking, I quickly spit the baby in my napkin. When they asked me how my piece was, I responded that it was good. Later, my wife came clean about putting the baby in my piece and I acted like I didn't know it was in there and that I must have swallowed it. She started getting nervous, so I eventually showed them the baby and we all had a good laugh about it.
