Oh me oh mi y'all, I found a King's Cake in Jaffa!!!!! What! 👑💜💛💚 Brings me right back to my Nola 'Mardi Gras' days, this wonderful tradition. I'm seeing them everywhere now in my media and can't believe I found one here!?!! 😱😍 A King's Cake has a lot of symbolic meaning for Christians, but baked inside of the cake is a little plastic baby. Whoever finds this baby in their slice of cake must buy next year's cake. 👶💸😂 In New Orleans, the cakes are topped with purple💜 (representing justice), green💚 (faith), and yellow💛 (power) and celebrated on King's Day, start of Mardi Gras season. A little Nola in Tel Aviv. Made my day. 👑🍰💜💚💛 #nolaintlv #kingscake #mardigras #telaviv #תלאביב #patisserie #french #foodporn #fromwhereistand #yummy #bakery #sweettooth #foodie #drool #neworleans #followyournola #ilovenola #tlvfood #foodandflatlay #eeeeeats #cakes #leftmyheartinneworleans

My mom used to say that from January 6th, epiphany, and the beginning of carnival season, until Mardi Gras day, she could see glitter in the air and feel the drums beat rhythms underground. I'm in London now instead of New Orleans and while I might not have glitter and drums I have do the aroma of cinnamon spice and warm baking brioche wafting through my house and wrapping its arms around me while I bake @joythebaker's New Orleans style king cake. Happy Carnival friends and laissez les bons temps rouler!
French Quarter beauty shines through even on a chilly day! ⚜❤⚜
It's always good to switch up your perspective every once in a while. #noma1910 ... [📷: @melontao] . . . . . #nomaisforfamilies #weekending #art #artmuseum #dailyoverview #neworleans #followyournola
Starting king cake season off with a bang (or an oink)! La Boulangerie is one of my favorite king cakes and I'm looking forward to trying this strawberry mascarpone version today. I love that it comes with a pig instead of a baby - seems appropriate to me.🐷
We created @meauxbar because it was important to have a good restaurant to have brunch or dinner before a show in the #neworleanstheatre district. Two and a half years later, I finally got to enjoy a great brunch with our clan before #lionking #nrampart #frenchquarterrestaurants #followyournola
Returned home from this magical city only to finally watch La La Land, and now I'm not sure how I'll go back to reality tomorrow. 💭
Be still my heart 💗💛. Check out this gorgeous double shotgun house in Mid-City. There are six houses in a row with identical rooflines. That shot will be coming next.
