Voodoo King and Queen Cakes

Jan 16th, 2014 by Michael

We’re expanding our already delicious lineup of King Cakes by adding two flavors of a new style this year… this time, there’s chocolate to be had!

It is my pleasure to introduce you to the Voodoo King and the Voodoo Queen.

The Voodoo King Cake features a coconut cream cheese filling, a rich chocolate ganache icing, and it is topped with crisp toasted coconut.

The Voodoo Queen Cake is filled with raspberry cream cheese, chocolate ganache icing is it’s crown, and it is finished with flaked chocolate.

The Voodoo Cakes are styled in honor of the Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club, a very long-standing New Orleans carnival krewe and parade that is known for its humanitarian contributions and outstanding social work in the African American and other New Orleans communities. The Krewe of Zulu is one of the oldest, and most respected carnival krewes still rolling a parade down the streets of New Orleans, equal to the Krewe of Rex. Both roll back-to-back on Mardi Gras Day to kick off the festivities.

The Krewe of Zulu is widely known for their very tongue-in-cheek wearing of blackface, grass skirts and leopard skins during the parade (considering they are predominantly African American), and are most well known for their prized throw… the painted coconut. The coconut and chocolate of our cakes are a loving tribute to their styling.
