The Progressive’s Lifestyle: Let Them Club for King Cake!

With the official start of Carnival season being Kings’ Day (January 6th), New Orleans will see multiple bakeries across the city bust open their doors and bring in hungry pastry lovers for the deliciousness that is King Cake. And while mainstays like Gambino’s and Haydel’s will for sure be taking orders, one new startup looks to make quite the impression.

King Cake Hub, whose physical location is located in the Mortuary Haunted House on Canal St, is a new website that serves lovers of this Mardi Gras desert with a special subscription club dedicated to the King Cake and all of its varieties. Started by the folks behind Pizza NOLA, King Cake Hub offers a limited supply of 200 club spots at $300 a pop, granting subscribers weekly delivery of the best our bakeries have to offer, in different flavors. This club is called the King Cake Coterie.

Kicking off on Kings’ Day this Sunday, King Cake Hub will offer music from the likes of The Panorama Brass Band from 8 AM to 10 AM, as well as the cutting of the first piece of Carnival season King Cake.

In preparation for this event, we’d like to highlight our excitement by way of three special King Cake selections:

The Epiphany

A collaboration between Gambino’s and Pizza NOLA, this flavor will make its debut on Sunday. Not much else is known beyond the cream cheese topping and classic style dough, but for us, any surprise involving King Cake is a good surprise!

Cannata’s Cannoli King Cake

“Leave the gun, take the cannoli,” is a popular line from the first Godfather film. Indeed, topped with chocolate chips, Italian Flag sprinkle decoration, and stuffed with a creamy filling (of course), Cannata’s signature from Sicily brings the sweet all the way home.

Traditional Cinnamon King Cake

Girls Gone Vegan Filled Gluten-Free/Vegan King Cake

For those wanting more specific dietary options, Girls Gone Vegan offers a cake that ranges from Peanut Butter Chocolate to Apple Pie. Free of gluten, eggs, and dairy, these specialties require 48-hour notice before delivery or pickup.

With offerings from Hi-Do, NOCCA, and more, King Cake Hub is an exciting way for New Orleanians foreign and domestic to celebrate Mardi Gras with some style and some flavor!

Hey guys!

Our fundraising drive through GoFundMe has progressed well enough for us to sustain most of the magazine operations into the next month. As of June 1st, we're at $1400, but we’ve decided to extend our deadline to June 15th and make $3500 our new goal.

We’re so grateful to our friends, our families, our neighbors, and especially our readers for chipping in, sharing, and donating to the cause of local progressive media. Your support has lifted us up so much and will most assuredly not be lost or forgotten.
