The North Shore is filled with great bakeries in groceries, mom-and-pop shops and restaurants. Whether you live or work north of Lake Pontchartrain or are just willing to make the drive for this special confection, tell us who makes the very best king cake north of Lake Pontchartrain.

One caveat: The cake can be plain or filled, but this poll is limited to sweet king cakes only. No savory entries please.

We also are searching for the best king cakes in East Jefferson, the West Bank, New Orleans proper and outlying parishes of the greater New Orleans area.

Leave us a comment below. Give us the full business name, street address and town, if you have it; and tell us what makes the king cakes at this shop, grocery or restaurant ... the very best. Got a photo? Share it in the comments section, too.

You can also nominate your favorite king cake maker on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, but you must use the hashtag #nolabestof so we can find the nomination. Your post must be set to "public'' in order for us to take your nomination.

We'll gather your comments into a poll, and voting will begin on Monday (Feb. 6).

So tell us: Who makes the best king cake on the North Shore?
