You didn't think our best bakery of 2013 was going to sit this one out, did you? Simone Faure worked in New Orleans with her pal Christy Augustin, too. King cakes will be available on Mardi Gras (Tuesday, not Saturday) for $25 each. You can get traditional cinnamon or one with an apple and cheese filling.
