When you want a king cake, where do you turn if you live in the River Parishes, St. Bernard, Plaquemines or beyond? Tell us who bakes the best cakes in your community.

We also will be searching for the best king cakes in: East Jefferson, the West Bank, the North Shore and within New Orleans city limits.

Those are big communities with lots of bakers who vie for customers, but we're sure there are great cakes in smaller towns around our area. If you live, work in those areas or just love a king cake you've had from there, nominate it here.

We are particularly interested in king cakes that are so good that you'd recommend folks make the drive to try it.

One caveat: This poll is limited to sweet king cakes only. No savory entries please.

Leave us a comment below. Give us the full business name and address, 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 beyond the greater New Orleans area?
