Voted 2011 Best King Cake in New Orleans by the Washington Post, The Sucré King Cakes were also featured as a favorite in Garden & Gun G&G.com and Saveur Magazine as well as by many dedicated customers on the "reviews" tab.
The king cake is as rich in history as it is in flavor. Since the 1800s, New Orleanians have celebrated the beginning of the Carnival Season with a “King’s Cake” on Twelfth Night. A small plastic baby is inserted in the cake, and the reveler who finds it is said to have good fortune for the year. The recipient then continues the festivities by having another party and providing a King Cake. To read more about the Washington Post article, please visit our Blog post.

- Dont waste your money on any other Review by Mississippi boy
- I cant tell you how good this pastry is. This isnt the typical packy cinnamon roll loaded with cheap candy crystals and a gallon of icing. This is a professional chef and it is evident when you make the first cut. It has a very light filling of cream cheese and the cake has those soft flaky layers that only professionals can turn out. This pairs perfect with cup of coffee. YOU MUST HEAT IT UP for the true flavor. I ordered two for my family, ate them up and come back for more and they were sold out....no surprise. OUTSTANDING JOB, CHEF!! (Posted on 2/12/2013)

- Perfection1 Review by Josette
- Im from the Gulf Coast and missing Mardi Gras this year due to work in Dallas. I ordered two King Cakes for the office and sent one home to my husband. They were both delivered the next day! My husband sent a picture of his half eaten, so I knew it couldnt be bad! The packaging was adorable and the cakes were as beautiful as the pictures. Everybody loved it and I have to say it's one of the best King Cakes I've ever tasted. Sucre' did not disappoint and I look forward to using them for Valentine's Day. (Posted on 2/1/2013)
- Beautiful and ships very well! Review by LaurenInTulsa
I tried this when I was home last year and really wanted to order one to ship to me here. I was a little nervous about how well it would handle the shipping. Well, I'm happy to say it was perfect! It looked and tasted just as good as it did when I ate it fresh from the store.
Brovo, Sucre! I can't wait for my next one! (Posted on 1/11/2013)

- my go-to king cake Review by ms_nola
- This is my go-to king cake... for eating, for shipping to people not lucky enough to live in NOLA and for recommending to friends (and, occasionally, strangers.) Don't even waste your time with anyone else if you're looking for a king cake that actually tastes as good as it looks. Sucré has it figure out. However, I think this year I may end up shipping Mardi Gras macarons instead... But I will definitely get at least one cake for myself, if nothing else. Hooray for Carnival! (Posted on 1/7/2013)

- Needed something delicious and beautiful for a special Mardi Gras dinner. The Sucre King Cake was perfect - just what I wanted - delicious and beautiful. The flavor was outstanding. The service was excellent. The King Cake arrived in West Virginia overnight fresh wonderful and on time for my dinner party. I will be back for more. (Posted on 3/19/2012)
- Fast delivery great cake Review by Nattyp
- On the day of Mardi Gras i realized my little brother didnt get any kingcake since he relocated to the East Coast. So I quickly checked for efficient delivery and reasonable prices online.. I found that Sucré got great reviews and took a chance. I placed the order, which was very simple, on my smartphone and within 2 days, it was delivered and beautifully presented. My brother and friends were amazed at the taste, appearance and it warned their hearts to receive the kingcake.. Thank you thank you Sucré!! (Posted on 3/19/2012)
- Sweetbread with Style Review by Profgirl36
- A King Cake is essentially a sweet bread with a light and sweet cream cheese filling that's not prominent or overpowering. It's glazed with a sparkly icing that's festive for Mardi Gras. The price is good; having checked other NOLA bakeries--the costs were sometimes more than double--and didn't include shipping. (Posted on 3/18/2012)

- vey good king cake Review by adm
This year was my first Sucre king cake.
I found that I enjoyed it as it was not overly sweet with a thin layer of beautiful icing.
The dough texture was the best, buttery and not dry.
My only complaint is the lack of cinnamon and cream cheese. Some parts of the cake had these in small amounts, other parts did not have any at all, making slices uneven in flavor. This area needs improvement. Otherwise it arrive on schedule as ordered. (Posted on 3/18/2012)

- Delicious Review by Kristy
- As a native texan, i ordered my first king cake this year. It was fresh and delicious! Came well packaged and appreciated the warming instructions. My only complaint is that I thought it would have more cream cheese filling, some bites you didn't even notice the filling, but it was still delicious. (Posted on 3/18/2012)
- WONDERFUL Review by Kara

- Wonderful King Cake Review by Chris
- Simply one of the best king cakes I've had. It had a wonderful light and airy broiche like cake and the glaze and decorations were beautiful and not overly sweet (just right). And they're right, heated up is definitely the way to go! (Posted on 3/9/2012)
- A Big Hit Review by Jacqui
First time I ordered a king cake and after looking at many sites, did I choose the right place. It came the day before my Mardis Gras party, just as I had ordered it, was the perfect size for the number of guests I had, looked beautiful and tasted delicious. My guests were very impressed. Sucre has the perfect recipe for this delectable treat. I also ordered a box of French macaroons which were so beautifully packed and, again, a delicious concoction.
I would definitely order either one of these items again, even if I wasn't having a Mardis Gras party. Thank you, Sucre, for your wonderful treats!! (Posted on 2/28/2012)
- Best ever! Review by Nikki
- As a former New Orleanian, I was dying for King Cake. A friend sent me a cream cheese filled cake from Sucre. I was blown away by the flavor. I do wish it had more filling but the flakey, butter taste was likeMardi Gras in my mouth. By far the best I have ever had and I have tried many. I am now a Sucre sucker. I just can't wait until next year. (Posted on 2/25/2012)
- Exceeded my expectations! Review by Leslie
- Since I wasn't able to be in NOLA this year for Mardi Gras, I wanted to have a little piece of it with me. The ordering process was super easy, I loved that you could pick out what day you wanted it to arrive. I wasn't sure how well a king cake would travel, but it arrived safely and on time. The taste... exceptional! I shared this with every member of my family, and everyone loved it! I will definitely be ordering more than one next year. Thank you so much! (Posted on 2/23/2012)
- Delicious but not very festive this year Review by Gail
I bought 2 king cakes this year, one to keep and one to give to my wonderful, NOLA-loving neighbors. The cakes arrived on time (hurrah!) but had very little color/sparkle. My neighbor, while raving about the taste, said when she first saw the cake, she didn't know if she wanted to taste it. Also I was a little disappointed not to find beads in the box! You guys are great - and I feel badly to complain - but I hope you can correct these things for next year.

- Delicious! Review by Denise
- As a native from New Orleans I've had many king cakes. Some very dry. Out of all of the king cakes I've ordered from New Orleans my co-workers and I enjoyed this one the most. It was moist and not too sweet. Loved it! (Posted on 2/22/2012)
- Can't get enough! Review by Jennifer
- This was BY FAR the best king cake I have EVER had! I used to work at a company that received DOZENS of king cakes from clients during Mardi Gras, and they were from several different NOLA bakeries. While I do like the different filling flavors offered by some other bakeries, the king cake itself can't be compared...it is MUCH better from Sucre! The only complaint is that I REALLY wish the cake were a little bit bigger, and maybe wish it had a tiny bit more cream cheese filling. If I had walked in the bakery and paid $20 for the cake, I'd be 100% satisfied w/ the size, but I had to pay $30 total with shipping, so for that much I do wish the cake was bigger. It was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! (Posted on 2/22/2012)

- Be careful when you order for delivery - Sucré completely unhelpful Review by Tom Lewis
I've had a slice of the cake in New Orleans and it was good. I ordered one for a birthday party with a "need by" delivery date noted. Sucré accepted my order, took my money, and I assumed I would receive the cake by my need-by date as it was placed days in advance of their cut-off for that delivery date. As you might suspect from my ratings, the cake did not arrive by my need-by date as FedEx does not do home deliveries on Monday, something that Sucré should tell their customers. They should have called me to tell me that I would need another delivery method or if I could have it delivered elsewhere. They had a week to do this but didn't. When I called Sucré they didn't offer even an apology. Great cake, terrible service, and a waste of money and time.
Dear Tom, I am sorry that we were unable to post the review you made on our site until late last night. We are a small company and it took every single hand to bake, package and ship all of the goodies yesterday. I found your order and I am very sorry that the King Cake was not delivered timely! I see that you emailed us at 10:49 this morning and I am sorry that I am responding to you so late in the day. We have had our hands full getting packages out today. In any event, I just left you a voice mail with my cell # and would like to make it right. My email is email@example.com.
Thank you for making us aware of the issue and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
All the best,
Tom, as of 02/21/2012 at 4:37pm CST I have heard back from you. Please allow us to correct the order.

- Excellent King Cake Review by thepaulhoa
Sucré's king cake was excellent. The bread had a nice brioche-like quality to it. Slightly more gourmet than your run-of-the-mill king cake, but in a good way. Was delicious and I'll order from Sucré again.
I do wish that it came with a resealable bag in order to better preserve freshness. But that doesn't take away from my overall satisfaction with this king cake. (Posted on 2/20/2012)

- Wonderful and fresh even after shipping in 3 day zone Review by Jessica
- I order and had a king cake shipped to the area in the 3 day shipping zone. It arrived on time and was beautiful. The glitter and shimmer is amazing. I was surprised to get some beads and a history card, which was nice. I love the texture; it was so soft even after taking a few days to ship. The only thing that would make it better is the option to buy and ship larger cakes, because everyone loves to eat it. (Posted on 2/19/2012)

- Beautiful and Delicious! Review by Destine
- I grew up in Louisiana and have lived out of state for the last 8 years. I always feel homesick at this time of year. When I came across Sucre's website and saw how beautiful these king cakes are and saw the rave reviews, I decided to order one immediately. And the price can't be beat. It arrived safely and on time, and is so delicious! Thanks Sucre for sending me a slice of home all the way to California! (Posted on 2/19/2012)
- The best! Review by Kerri
- Living in northern Illinois there isn't much of a demand for king cakes around here. Our local family bakery makes them for Mardi Gras and we've bought them for years. (Made one once but boy does that take a LONG time!) Over the years, the prices of their king cakes keep going up and up, but if anything the quality has gone down! I found Sucre on Facebook and wanted to try out one of their king cakes because it looked so pretty! I won one on a Facebook contest, was able to try it, and now I'm hooked! We just had a Mardi Gras party here last night and introduced the family and friends to Sucre King Cakes! They are all hooked too! So much more moist -- and that was after shipping! These cakes taste fresh baked even 5 days later! The "fresh" at our local bakery are NO WHERE near as good. I'm a Sucre fan -- they have my King Cake business from now on! (Posted on 2/19/2012)
- Heaven! Review by Genna
- Moist. Buttery. Sinful. This is HANDS DOWN the BEST king cake I have ever enjoyed. As a New Orleans native, I have tried my fair share of king cakes. I don't know why it took me so long to sample Sucre's, but never again will I purchase another king cake. Now that I have moved away with the military, I am stuck ordering king cakes online. This one arrived fresh and as beautiful as the pictures. The price for shipping is less than with other companies and the taste is far superior. Many other king cake producers drown their versions in filling and icing, which I always end up scraping off....not this one. It is perfect in every way, and not a crumb goes to waste. Order yours and you will see why my mouth waters just thinking about my next piece! (Posted on 2/19/2012)

- MELT IN YOUR MOUTH SPECTACULAR! Review by Christine
- Sucre King Cake is AMAZING! Thank you all! This is a follow up to 2/17 Review! Had our party and cake was amazing. I definitely recommend warming it gently. Wrapped it in foil and put in oven @ 200 degrees to warm. It was melt in your mouth delicious, flaky layers, cinnamon and cream cheese just right. Can not beat the quality of this any where. Probably better than homemade. Thank you Sucre! XOXOX from Las Vegas! (Posted on 2/19/2012)

- Best of four Review by Susan
- This year I bought 2 Sucre King Cakes and 3 suppliers of ours (including 2 from Louisiana) sent us King Cakes. Sucre was everyone's first choice. I will refrain from identifying the others, but 1 (2nd choice) was from an upscale grocery chain, and the remaining 2 from companies who have been making King Cakes for a long time. All had some relative value but yours was the best overall. (Posted on 2/18/2012)
- Nothing short of FANTASTIC Review by MJ
- We live in Illinois and have been ordering King Cakes for several years now. We vacation in NOLA every summer, and fell in love with the city and it's many traditions. Of all the King Cakes we've tried, this is definitely the best. We really like that we don't have to get all the extra stuff--we've accumulated enough beads, books, doubloons, etc. Thanks for the great quality and service. You'll have our order next year!

- Great Review by Angie
- This is a really great King Cake. I don't like a lot of icing or cream cheese filling (although I do LOVE cream cheese) but on Gambino's and Randazzo's King Cakes I'm always removing icing. Sucre had just enough icing and cream cheese. Also the bread texture was better as well. Not dry or soggy, perfect texture. It's not a traditional looking King Cake as I like however the risk paid off, cake came in Tuesday, It was gone Wednesday. Will order another before too late. (Posted on 2/16/2012)

My friend in New Orleans who received the othe king cake I sent, raved about it! She said "it's the best king cake I've ever had!". I'll be in Nola this week and can hardly wait to have my first Sucre king cake! (Posted on 2/13/2012)
- Beautiful AND delicious! Review by Bethany in Florida
- I ordered several of these, one to keep and the others to give to friends. What a hit they were-the cakes are lovely to look at and delicious to eat. I will be having some more sent before carnival season is over! (Posted on 2/13/2012)
- My New Favorite! Review by Judy
- Although I've lived away from New Orleans for 16 years, I still have to have my annual king cake fix. I've had my favorites over the years, but I've lately been discouraged by the high prices and poor customer service. After I read about the Sucre King Cake on Garden & Gun's Facebook page, I had to try it. It was beautiful, fresh, and delicious and a fair price for the size and service. I don't know whether I can resist ordering another one this season - I already sent one to my parents. Yum! (Posted on 2/13/2012)
- Beautiful & delicious Review by Sue
- Since moving from Louisiana years ago, I've received many king cakes in the mail. All have been smashed or survived transit poorly. My Sucre cake arrived beautifully packaged and in wonderful shape. And, it was the most delicious one I've eaten in years. (Posted on 2/13/2012)
- The Ultimate King Cake Review by Ursula
- As child my siblings and I looked forward to Mardi Gras and King Cake. Thank you for the wonderful King cake. It made me feel warm and fuzzy and reminded me of my childhood. Not only was it gorgeous, it was also scrumptious! (Posted on 2/13/2012)

- Amazing Review by Patti
- I have eaten king cakes all my life .. but Sucre is the BEST king cake I have ever had. Its a delicate, buttery pastry with just the right amount of sweetness on top. Pop a slice in the micro, pour yourself a cup of coffee and your day is perfect! (Posted on 2/12/2012)

- A-MAZ-ING!!! Review by Lindsey
- This was my first King Cake from Sucre and OMG I'm so glad I bought one from them. I've been wanting a King Cake for weeks now and after looking around on the internet at several companies, I decided on Sucre and I'm so glad I did. The cake was beautiful and yummy, not too sweet... perfect! I will definitely buy from again. In fact, I'm trying to hint to my honey to buy me some of those yummy looking chocolates :) (Posted on 2/12/2012)
- Fantastic King Cake!! Review by Chris
- I ordered 15 King cakes for my church's Mardi Gras fundraiser. Everyone loved the cake. The texture is perfect, the cake is moist and I love that the cake is not cloyingly sweet. The way that it is decorated sets it apart from other King cakes. Thanks again for shipping it to Brooklyn!! (Posted on 2/12/2012)

- Beautiful - Inside + Out Review by King Cake Newbie
1. I love Sucre's macaroons and was eager to try their King Cake. My 1st one ever.
2. Wonderfully packaged, prettified with edible glitter, and a delectable filling.
3. I will return. (Posted on 2/12/2012)
- Nastalgia Review by Dee
- After moving from my beloved state of Louisiana in the 2000s, I miss the culture and food that it offered. Sucre' helped me capture a small piece of Louisiana with this King cake. As a father and husband to California natives, sharing my childhood traditions is very important to me. Thanks Sucre' for the delicious memories from the Bryant clan. (Posted on 2/11/2012)

- WoW Review by delphine
My first real king cake--and it had to come from Sucre in New Orleans. I was excited to be able to have one delivered to me; if you can't be in NO this was the next best thing.
Beautifully packaged; I took photos of it as I knew it wouldn;t be around long. Wonderful taste and texture, beautiful presentation. I could have handled a little more of the filling, but that's just me. I would definitely buy this againl. I recommend a "taste of NOLA" package assortment: a sampler of maccaroons, chocolates, a few marshmallows, etc. along with the King Cake, which is what I did. Thank you Sucre for a wonderful King Cake. (Posted on 2/11/2012)
- Definitely the Best Review by sterm1
- I got this as a gift for my friends who recently moved from NOLA & have been homesick especially during this time of Mardi Gras. They were so happy with the taste. They said it was definitely the best they had ever tasted!!! (Posted on 2/11/2012)
- Beautiful and Delish!! Review by Scribbles
- This King Cake reminded me of the ones we ate when I was a kid only better. Warming it for a few seconds in the microwave makes it seriously addicting. Sucre did a great job with the shipping and the King Cake arrived in perfect condition in such a nice box with a band of Mardi Gras scene....sigh! I so want to be home. Thanks Sucre, I'll be ordering again! (Posted on 2/11/2012)
- Heaven Review by Sandiamom
- My daughter in NO sent this King Cake to us. We've never tasted one before. She needed to warn us not to eat it all in one sitting! Not only was it simply delectable, it is a fabulously beautiful cake. Sometimes the pretty stuff disappoints on flavor. Not this. Can't wait for the next one :P (Posted on 2/11/2012)

- Could not wait to try this! Review by Christina
- I have always been fascinated by everything New Orleans, and try to fly down for a king cake every year. Found Sucre on twitter and was so excited to try their version. Ordering and delivery were easy, and it is the most beautiful king cake I have ever seen. A little confused by the baby not in the cake, this is the first one I have ever tried where the baby was not baked right inside. It is delicious though, I love it. Will order 2 next year.

- No comparison Review by Redshelly
- I ordered the Sucre King Cake for my daughter who attends Tulane, as well as for my family in Wisconsin & another friend. This was my daughter's third King Cake, but the first one from Sucre. She raved about it. Said she had found the others slightly disgusting, but that the Sucre King Cake was incredible. Her girlfriends couldn't believe how good it was & now the next King Cake purchaser has a much higher standard to live up to. (Posted on 2/4/2012)
- Mmmmardi Gras! Review by Gail
- I can't bite into a Sucre King Cake without closing my eyes...the buttery pastry and creamy texture just demand a moment of close-eyes savor. I was surprised to find beads in the box with the cake, which just delighted me. Thank you! (Posted on 2/3/2012)

- Perfect again! Review by Carolina13
- Our King Cake arrived promptly and in perfect condition. My husband and I have been enjoying it for 2 days and it's still fresh and delicious. After years of rather mediocre mail order King Cakes from other bakeries, it is a joy to discover a fresh, delicious, appropriately priced King Cake. Simply the best! (Posted on 2/3/2012)

- Kudos for Sucre's King Cake! Review by Visitor to NOLA
- Only through my Tulane husband and eventually my Tulane daughter did I learn of the "king cake" and its legend. I have had my share in the intervening years and this beats all! I was visiting New Orleans and saw the cake at the Canal Street mall. Afraid of having it taken by TSA, I waited until I got home and had 3 shipped to me for gifts. They arrived in excellent condition, just as pretty, and the melt in your mouth cake impressed my Nola friends who live in Atlanta. The best cake we have had and a great value....Thank you Sucre!

- AWESOME first experience Review by mardi gras mambo in memphis
- i stumbled onto the sucre' reviews and thought i would give their king cake a try....having spent my college years immersed in everything new orleans and having eaten my weight in king cakes during that time i have tried them all...sucre' was new to me so i had one shipped to memphis to share at work with other folks who either grew up in nola and had migrated north due to katrina or had spent quite a bit of time there over the years....EVERYONE was blown away not only by the uniqueness of the cake's presentation including the colorful icing with the shimmering glitter just visible underneath the surface but were blown away by the freshness, the moistness, the textures, the suprise dimension the cream cheese filling provided and the overall experience of it all blended together as it was eaten.....i served it hot and not one crumb was left and there was not a single negative comment by the hard core mardi gras mambo maniacs i had shared it with.....excellent product from a first class bakery who knows how to service their out of town customers with a superior product quickly and that's reasonably priced (Posted on 1/30/2012)

- Very good! Review by Jessica C.
- I think this is a great tasting King Cake! I do wish it would have had more cream cheese in it since I could hardly taste the cream cheese. Other than that its great. My kids are loving the beads that came with it and I thought the presentation was very nice as well. (Posted on 1/27/2012)

- One of the best as stated by a NOLA native!! Review by Carolyn and Mark
- We live in New Hampshire and we joke that we have the biggest Mardi Gras party, but we probably have the only party! Last year we ordered King Cake from Sucre and not only was it beautiful, but it was so delicious. Our party guests raved at how it shimmered and loved the taste. Needless to say we are having your King Cake again. This one though is just for us and will be ordering two for the party and one for our twins to take to Middle School to share with their teachers. Must have a little New Orleans in New Hampshire. Thank you for an amazing product. Sincerely, Carolyn and Mark (Posted on 1/21/2012)
- New Orleans Delivered! Review by Allison + Chris Atkinson
- What can we say about this King Cake from Sucré that hasn't already been said? The cake is so rich, so flavorful,and then your tongue hits the cream cheese and it just melts. You're not taking a chance with this one. It's the real deal. It's glittery, luminescent, iridescent, purple, green and gold and it's the next best thing to being right there in New Orleans. We also ordered a bag of the handcrafted marshmallows and they were delicious as well. (Posted on 1/20/2012)

- Don't know, hear it's wonderful Review by Mal
- I sent this cake to a friend in Seattle, because the people I spoke with on the phone at Sucre were the most helpful in helping me decide how to get it there before it became stale. He received the cake on time within two days of my ordering it and said it was stunning and delicious (he knows, he's a baker and he used to live/work here). Thanks Sucre. (Posted on 1/15/2012)

- A real treat to all of the senses Review by Kathy Hendrickson
- The Sucre' King Cake is indeed a throw-back to the days before gooey, filled king cakes but much more. The texture is soft the flavor slightly lemony the icing perfectly restrained.

- Simply the best. Review by Bacchusmember85
I have tried many of the local king cakes and Sucre tops them all. I particularly like their approach to the traditional PGG topping. Sucre's approach is more subtle and refined, yet very favorful. Their cake is also very moist. Most competitors' cakes are very dry unless they have filling.
I also like being able to buy them on-line at a reasonable price without all the cups, beads and posters that drive up the cost.
A Sucre King Cake is half the price and twice as good. (Posted on 1/6/2012)

- Hail to the King of King Cakes Review by Dan Boudreaux
- As a kid, I could not wait for Mardi Gras and a slice or 2 of king cake. Needless to say, I have had my fair share. Although, it's been difficult to find the quality I remember from the old-time bakeries until I found Sucre. At first I was skeptical. As they say, "the proof is in the pudding." Well let me tell you, the Sucre king cake not only brings back the fond memories, it surpass the old-timers and is without a doubt the best most delicious king cake. Thank you Sucre. From, the Boudreaux family. (Posted on 12/10/2011)
