|Poupart's French Style King Cake.|
Poupart's stays true to its French roots by offering the only "French King Cake" in the region. The French King Cake is a sophisticated cake of golden layers of light and flaky pastry dough filled with a homemade almond cream (similar to marzipan). To release its true potential this cake should be warmed in the oven prior to serving.
These cakes are as light as air -- and you'll see why when you cut into it. The overall sense of this cake was that it tended to be a bit too dry and ours may have even been somewhat overcooked. Compare this to the mass of a Meche's king cake and you'll see the two opposite ends of the king cake spectrum in Lafayette.
