Yours for only $19 plus shipping!
Ok, but then you have to order, pay shipping and wait for your king cake kit to arrive via UPS. Sigh. But wait....
There's a local alternative! Barb's Bakery at 2929 N. 24th St. in Phoenix is taking orders for king cakes. You won't get one today, but order now and in a few days you'll have a cream cheese stuffed ring of doughy goodness, complete with sparkly topping. The best part? It's only $14.95. Definitely cause for celebration -- as if you needed an excuse.
