I am continuing my search for All Things King Cakes. Yesterday, I tried the French King Cake at Poupart’s called a Galette des Rois which is a traditional french cake.
The French King Cake was packaged with a king’s crown and the baby nicely wrapped with instructions. Unlike most traditional King Cakes this one required a little preparation. Nothing hard, quite simple for anyone to follow.
I followed the directions and I was ready to dive in. I cut the french cake and immediately noticed that there was a thin layer of filing.
The cake was flaky, buttery, puffy and really good. The filing was an almond filing. Delicious. The flaky crust had a buttery flavor. Oh so good.
I loved the cake, one thing I immediately noticed was that the cake was not super sweet. Which I personally loved, some king cakes are way too sweet. A slice would be perfect with a hot cup of coffee or a big glass of milk.
This was my first time having a Galette des Rois and it won’t be my last.
I loved the packaging, the king’s crown included was super cute. My son got a kick out of it and he was running around like he was royalty.
Poupart’s nailed this King Cake!
