King Cake Hub is thrilled to announce a second pop-up location at The Gift Shop at Historic New Orleans Collection at 520 Royal Street. The partnership with HNOC is set to coincide with the upcoming Masking Mardi Gras exhibition opening January 6, 2022.
This will be King Cake Hub’s fourth year selling a wide assortment of the best king cakes you have ever and never tasted and will include new king cake offerings from several of our partner bakeries. Brennan’s is back this year with their Traditional and Pink Parade king cakes as well as a yet to be revealed “Special Release” filled king cake which all Coterie members will receive on January 6th. In addition to Brennan’s, NOCCA’s students are back in the kitchen working with Steve Himelfarb and the team from now shuttered Cake Cafe offering their hugely popular Goat Cheese Apple and new this year will be a Gluten and Dairy Free cake.
