Order Your King Cakes for Mardi Gras
King Cake season is now in full force at our bakery. Mardi Gras is a short season this year and Fat Tuesday comes
on February 16. Like all holidays Mardi Gras is hugely affected by the pandemic as parades are cancelled all
over the South. However, no one is cancelling king cakes and we can all celebrate this great tradition here in
Colorado with fresh king cakes from our Ovens.
We bake both traditional and gluten free king cakes and in 2016 USA Today proclaimed our king cake one of
the top 10 in the US, a huge honor since we are in the Rocky Mountains!

Our king cakes are famous around the US, for being the king cake that gives. The story
started in 2005 with hurricane Katrina. Our bakery is always looking to help those in need, close by and
when the cause calls for it. Our City of Arvada, CO had a sister city in Meridian, Mississippi, which was in
the epicenter of the hurricane. Meridian needed help and we participated in a fundraiser to rebuilt East
Mississippi and help remodel a house for a volunteer base.
The fundraiser later evolved to a yearly event called King Cakes for Katrina that benefitted United Way and then
Cross in New Orleans thru their Natural Disaster Fund.
In the last 5 years the fundraiser has been donated to the Colorado Chapter of the Red Cross to benefit local
disasters where the need is greatest. Since 2006 we raised over $33,600 to support these causes and all
this with a good amount of purple, green and gold sugar.
King Cakes will be available thru Mardi Gras which in 2021 is February 16.
Truly we wish that the "Laissez les bons temps roulez" happens this year!
