Perfect Kugelhopf from Maurice French Pastries--moist, perfectly baked and full of flavor! It was just right!

This king cake went to my grandsons in CA. They loved it! The 9-year-old really enjoyed decorating it himself with the icing & sugar included. My daughter sent me a pic & the packaging was awesome. It arrived in perfect condition. I was excited that the shipping was included in the price & that I found a coupon code for a discount. Thank you!

I used to live in France and have tried galette des rois (king cake) from bakeries all over the country; this is the best one I’ve found! Lots of frangipane in the middle and it is a little on the custardy side if you like that style. Also the fleur de lis on the top is beautiful!

Simply perfect, it was my wife’s Bday and her favorite place in the world is NOLA!
