Tubbs Extreme King Cake

Tubbs Extreme King Cake

One of the liveliest Carnival markets is in confections. It's the battle of the bakeries. "Oh, I've got King Cake from Bakery X!" "Not to worry," someone else might say; "I've got a fabulous King Cake from Bakery Y!"

Don Tubbs, proprietor of Tubbs Cajun Gifts, Bossier City, has been a student of Carnivalia for years. His cream-filled cake name is perhaps the catchiest in the region, befitting the dynamism of the marketplace: Tubbs Extreme King Cake.

Does that mean you can eat it while skateboarding or skydiving? Or does it mean that he's just trying Extreme-ly Hard to get your business?

Either way, the beneficiary is the King Cake customer. Bon appetit!
