Dong Phuong King Cakes

Founded in 1982, Dong Phuong Bakery is the oldest and most established Vietnamese bakery in New Orleans offering traditional baked goods, Banh Mi, and seasonal delicacies such as Mooncakes and King Cakes.

WHAT ARE KING CAKES?

King Cakes are a traditional New Orleans delicacy served during Mardi Gras and are believed to have been brought to New Orleans from France in the late 1800s. King Cakes feature a rich, brioche dough and a wide array of fillings, such as cinnamon, cream cheese, and pecan. The crown shaped cake is then decorated with purple, green, and gold sugar and our signature cream cheese icing.

Dong Phuong King Cakes include the signature baby figurine that comes sanitized and placed on top. Traditionally, the host of the party places the baby figurine in the King Cake before it’s sliced and served. Each person then looks to see if their piece contains the hidden item. If so, then that person is named “King” for a day and bound by custom to host the next party and provide the King Cake.

what is the shelf life of a king cake?

DP Bakery King Cakes are counter stable for 3 days. If you would like to keep your King Cakes longer, you can refrigerate them or they can be frozen and enjoyed year-round.
