Mardi Gras Gift Box
Ask any Mobilian and he or she will tell you what most of the rest of the world doesn't realize: Mobile was the original home of Mardi Gras in the United States. It's true. We beat out the other southern city to the west by a good seven years. So naturally, we know how to celebrate—and eat—for Mardi Gras in style.
The Mardi Gras cake ball gift box features several flavors and recipes traditional to Mobile. Once you taste one, you'll be ready to make our cake balls part of every Mardi Gras celebration.
The Mardi Gras cake ball package contains:
Chocolate Moonpie - There's something about Mobile and moonpies. We drop one at midnight on New Year's Eve. And parade goers clamor for them among the beads and other trinkets thrown from the passing floats. This particular cake ball is chocolate cake with a mini marshmallow in the middle covered in chocolate ganache.
Praline King Cake - If the name of this cake ball seems redundant, it's only because you've never had a king cake. I's a Mardi Gras tradition across the Southeast and this one starts with cinnamon cake and has chopped pralines mixed in. It's finished with a coating of white chocolate ganache.
Cinnamon King Cake - Variety is the spice of life, they say. And in this case, the spice is cinnamon. Moist cinnamon cake is coated with white chocolate ganache. Then, to top if off (literally) a little plastic baby is placed on top. It's our take on the tradition of hiding a baby in an actual king cake (and a whole lot gentler on your teeth).
Banana Moonpie - Though not as contentious as the war between the states, folks still argue over the best flavor of moonpie. Or in this case, moonpie cake ball. The Banana Moonpie cake ball features banana cake with a mini marshmallow in the middle with white chocolate ganache coating.
Joe Cain's Red Velvet - Joe Cain is the man largely credited with re-starting Mobile's Mardi Gras festivities after the Civil War and for that, we honor him with traditional red velvet cake covered in white chocolate and finished with red sprinkles on top.
Krewe de Key Lime - In Mobile, we have Mystic Societies that gather together to create floats for parades and basically, have an excuse to party. They're called Krewes, thus, the Krewe de Key Lime cake ball was named. A lusciously rich key lime cake coated with white chocolate ganache.
Many of these flavors are only available for a limited time, so order a box today.
