Paul’s King Cakes at
La Bonbonniere Bake Shops

From mycentraljersey.com:

Feb. 17 marks the culmination of Mardi Gras, an annual festival which commemorates “Fat Tuesday,” the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the 40-day Christian period of sacrifice known as Lent.

First celebrated in New Orleans in 1857, Mardi Gras has since become well-known for its flamboyant parades, lively jazz and blues music, bright masks, and costume beads in the traditional colors of purple, green, and gold (representing justice, faith, and power). But perhaps nothing is more symbolic of this famed celebration than King Cake, a cinnamon roll-like baked good with a small plastic baby laden in its folds for a lucky recipient to find.

And thanks to a creative new partnership with the renowned Paul’s Pastry Shop in Picayune, Mississippi, La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppes throughout Central Jersey is now offering the southern bakery’s authentic King Cakes so that local residents can enjoy a bit of Bayou country mystique.
