King Cakes are for EVERYONE!

Thank God!

I am not Catholic nor do I celebrate Lent or Mardi Gras. I've posted about this multiple times and about my beliefs here.

But, I do celebrate the eating of the beloved king cake!

I've given away 3 king cakes over the last few years and posted a recipe for this seasonal pastry over on the Mama Belle Cooks tab. You can try that if you've never had one (Pillsbury also has an easier mini-cake version.), but your best bet is to win one here.

Because honestly, the king cakes made from the bakeries down here are the BEST! Meche's is my favorite (for all you locals ... you may have another favorite I'd love to hear about.).

Now ... the RULES:

1. FOR 1 ENTRY
Leave a comment telling me what type of filling you'd like in your king cake. If you're a local, you MUST also tell me your favorite place to buy a king cake.

Also leave your email address so that I can contact you to arrange delivery.

2. FOR 2 ENTRIES
If you haven't LIKED my Facebook page, go over and LIKE it here, then come back and tell me you did it.

If you already like my Facebook page, tell me you do, and SHARE this post telling your friends about the giveaway.

3. Comments must be entered by midnight Thursday night and winner will be announced on Friday.

That's it! Now, get to commenting. I hope a delicious king cake is in your future.

I'm like Wendi! How did I not know you had a FB page??? Liked!!

Favorite filling: Cream cheese or praline. =) And, while I'm not local, per se, I've been getting my king cake fix at a bakery here called Social Bites. It's really astonishing how many king cake slices one can eat at a time...
