King Cake Hub is a retailer that compiles all of the best king cake options in New Orleans into one easy-to-use shopping experience. Customers are able to order king cakes from a variety of bakeries through the website and then pick up those cakes at a single location.
Jennifer Samuels, owner of the King Cake Hub, has announced there will be two new locations for the 2022 Carnival season. The main King Cake Hub will share space with Zony Mash Beer Project, a brewery in New Orleans. Zony Mash and King Cake Hub will be collaborating to release a special edition King Cake Stout beer which should be ready in time for King Cake Hub’s Annual Carnival Kickoff Party.
King Cake Hub will also have a second pop-up location at The Gift Shop at Historic New Orleans Collection. 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 king cakes, including several new offerings from its 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 6. In addition to Brennan’s, NOCCA’s students are back offering their popular Goat Cheese Apple and new this year will be a Gluten and Dairy Free cake.
