From an email:
“This Saturday we’re celebrating Mardi Gras with the launch of a new collab with David Guas of Bayou Bakery: the king cake kolache!
Combining our kolache dough with David’s signature cream cheese & cinnamon filling (as well as the traditional icing & tricolor sprinkles) the king cake kolache will enjoy a limited run ending with Mardi Gras weekend on Feb. 6.
Those who order a king cake kolache this week or next just may find a king cake baby hiding behind their kolache, which both constitutes good luck, and can also be redeemed for a free kolache at the register.
[it’s only at our popup shop on Saturdays @ American Ice Company [917 V St, NW] — 10a-1p PS pro tip: you can also lock down your king cake kolaches with a pre-order for this Sat!]
This is our second ‘Guest Chef’ kolache after a highly successful run of the brisket kolache (a collab with Rob Sonderman, then at DCity Smokehouse). Cajun flavors are no stranger to the kolache (especially in East TX), so tipping the hat to the hallowed king cake felt like an appropriate culinary celebration of our neighbors to the East.”
