Akin to coffee cake, the ring-shaped creation is popular for its sugar toppings in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold as well as the tiny baby (usually plastic) placed inside the baked and braided Danish dough. Got the slice of cake with the baby? Congratulations, you get to hold the next King Cake party.

Last week, we featured Barb's Bakery as a spot to kick-off Carnival with a King Cake. Today, we're listing six more, which means lots of choices depending on your party size and budget. But take note: Most ask that you order in advance, so plan accordingly.

Honey Moon Sweets
No matter what the size of your Mardi Gras party, chances are this Tempe establishment from husband and wife team Tim and Joan O'Connor offers a size of King Cake that will fit. Made with a cheese filling baked into the dough, sizes include individual 10" round cakes ($45) as well as cakes big enough to feed 25 people ($48), 50 people ($96), and even 100 people ($175). Order three days in advance.

Flavors of Louisiana
This Louisiana-style restaurant in the West Valley features King Cake in five flavors: cinnamon, cream cheese, strawberries and cream, lemon and cream, and pralines and cream. The cakes are 12" in size, feed about 10-12 people, and cost $20. Orders need to be placed 24 hours in advance.

"..as well as the tiny baby (usually plastic) placed inside the baked and braided Danish dough."  Just curious - if not plastic what are the other options - real flesh and blood?
