King cake, the tasty symbol of Carnival, is a staple for everyone here from Twelfth Night (January 6) until Ash Wednesday. By now, you’ve likely had many, many incredible king cakes, which means it’s time to tee up that palette with some curve balls — the delicious and, at times, wild and wacky, world of king cake variations and other food and drink items that the sweet cinnamon brioche flavor inspires.
Besides, it’s important to keep eating more king cake than anyone should, if only so you can welcome the end of Carnival season with open arms.
