The top vote-getters in our poll to find the best king cakes in East Jefferson Parish were no surprise: Manny Randazzo's and Haydel's Bakery got the most votes by far, with Caluda's coming in third.
The folks behind Caluda's have been in the king cake business since the 1990s.
That's a lot of kind bake experience among these three top vote-getters.
In 2017, we ran five king cake polls asking to nominated and then vote for best king cakes by geographic area in the greater New Orleans metro area. Our goal was to find lesser-known bakeries and go deeper into communities to find which cakes residents liked best.
The top three East Jefferson king cake winners are listed, starting with the cake that received the most votes in our poll.
