Gluten Free King Cakes 

Rheinlander Bakery is now baking a gluten free version of this confection to ensure that gluten intolerant and celiac people can participate in these festivities and enjoy this famous confection too! The cake is baked under a strict gluten free protocol in our bakery in Arvada, CO.

So Far, we have donated over $23,000 to disaster relief by donating 10% of the proceeds from king cakes we sell to the Red Cross disaster relief fund, wherever the need is greatest

King Cakes date back to the middle ages and are celebrated in many cultures in different forms around the world. The famous Mardi Gras King originated in France where it's known as the "gateaux de roix". The King cake celebrates gift giving by reference to the three wise men that brought gifts to the baby Jesus. The cake hides a little charm, that symbolizes the gift. This charm was originally a bean or a nut and in some cultures a coin. When the French influence spread in Louisiana, the King cake was adopted as the official Mardi Gras confection.

It's personality has been made more festive over the years with the addition of the three Mardi Gras colors: Purple to stand for Justice, Green to stand for Faith, and Gold to stand for power.

We originally brought the King Cake tradition to Colorado, by association with the Retail Bakers of America's quest to spread original baking legends all over the US. Over the years we have baked 100s of King Cakes during the Mardi Gras season. When hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit, it was natural for us to want to help the birthplace of the Mardi Gras Cake.

Thank You So Much!
