Tres Leches King Cake from Ideal Market

Ideal Market is incorporating the best of both worlds by combining its tres leches recipe with Louisiana king cake flavors. 

According to head chef Abril Gonzales, the cake consists of cinnamon, cream cheese, vanilla cake and a cream cheese filling. 

“They don’t really understand it at first because it’s not traditional,” said Gonzales. “It’s not a bread, it’s a cake. So, that weighs something on people that they have to try it.” 

Guests can purchase a full-sized king cakes or single slices.
