In South Louisiana, King Cake this season is quite common. It is kinda like a coffee cake, with a small plastic baby doll baked inside. Whoever gets the baby either is the king/queen of the ball, or, in an office setting, responsible for bringing in the next one.

Lots of places have imaginative fillings--my mom sent us up one, and it had a pralines and cream filling. She also said there was a turtle one. There was a picture of a slice of the one she sent this year on my Instagram feed.

You can order your own, and have it shipped, but you have to do it quick--they will stop selling them on Mardi Gras (March 4 this year!), and won't start again until around after Christmas. The place my mom sends ours from:

I live in Lafayette, LA, the heart of Cajun Country, so yes, I have had King Cake (almost every day this past week, to the detriment of my waistline--people bring them into the English department offices, whether they got the baby last year or not). The one you describe is my favorite, but there are lots of other varieties. Some folks like the cream filled ones (I do not) or the jelly filled ones (I do not). I like the addition of apples to my King Cake. I like Meche's King Cakes the best.
