The Big Book of King Cake by Matt Haines with Photography by Randy Krause Schmidt

"I once ate more than eighty king cakes in a single Carnival," author Matt Haines proudly remembers, demonstrating his dedication to this delicious Mardi Gras tradition. "So you can imagine how amazed I was to learn there has never been a coffee table book dedicated to king cakes!"

The Big Book of King Cake changes that with beautiful photography of more than one hundred and fifty unique king cakes, as well as stories from the diverse and talented bakers who make them.

While king cakes are typically only available during Carnival season, readers can enjoy this book year-round. From the traditional cakes generations of New Orleanians have loved, to the unconventional creations that break all the rules, this book is your guide to the Crescent City's favorite baked good.

The perfect gift for anyone who loves food, history, sweets, culture, and of course, New Orleans.

King Cake book review

I sent it to my daughter in Washigton DC- she was over the moon about it. She counts the days until its time for king cake!!! She loves to just sit and thumb through the pages - wonderful pictures and great meaningful content.

Everyone needs this book

This is a one of a kind special book about so many king cakes we have around us. The history and details on every page captures you and the photos are just so vibrant. The book is just WOW! And so worth the cost.

You need one and should gift one too!
