Of course! How about "Chet"? Beans? and Carnival? Before my time. Thank goodness SOMETHING is before my time!
Hi there MakingSense.
Remember Gambino's and their squarish KC with rock sugar on top? That was yummy too!
Okay here is the deal: You are right about Krummel's - technically it is "Mandeville Bake Shop" (I live here in MVille now) and their cakes are so so - the plain ones.
Tastee Donuts bought the recipe in the last two years or so for the MCKENZIE's cakes!!! I had several and they were great. I haven't had one this year so not sure if they're still doing them.
In Mandeville, we have Rouse's Supermarket and their King Cakes are the closest I've found to MKenz. Remember McKenz cinammon rolls? Rouse has plain cinammon KCs with icing and sugar on the top but the icing is like McKenz cin roll icing. Yummy. They probably do mail order! Get a few and freeze them. I did that every year with McKenz b/c I had moved to Baton Rouge and would come to NOLA and get 4-5 large ones and freeze them.
