Where to find king cake for Mardi Gras in Seattle

Looking for a last-minute king cake to celebrate Mardi Gras? Here are a few Seattle options for the colorful treat that comes with a prize — often a small plastic baby — hidden inside:

Sugar Bakery & Cafe will have the traditional cakes available through March 8, with a choice of bourbon pecan praline or vanilla cream cheese filling. Call the bakery to reserve a whole cake; on Friday they’ll also be sold by the slice.

Slices of cake are available Tuesday at Restaurant Roux and the Where Ya At Matt food truck. (If you get the slice with the baby when eating the cake in-house at Roux, you win an order of beignets… or another piece of cake.)

When I called early Tuesday, Bakery Nouveau in West Seattle had both whole cakes and slices available for the day, while the Capitol Hill branch had just slices.

Looking ahead to treats for Fat Tuesday? Bakery Nouveau doesn’t expect to have its usual Paczki doughnuts this year, due to ongoing work on its fryer hood, but they’re available at branches of Metropolitan Market.
