Local Bloggers Take King Cake Challenge

Happy Mardi Gras, y’all! One of our favorite and most popular tees this Carnival Season has been the “King Cake Calories Don’t Count” tee. We know every Rīga girl lives by that rule come January! To go with its release, we asked our local fashion bloggers to share THEIR favorite locally-made King Cakes in our SFT King Cake Challenge. You can see more on the hashtag #KingCakeChallenge and even share your own favorites!

January chose The Heavenly Donut Bananas Foster King Cake! According to January, it’s the biggest and best donut you’ve ever had because it’s filled with banana cream and Rum filling. Then it’s topped with a decadent Praline Caramel sauce! Um, yes please! She had quite the donut spread in her post. 
You can see it all here.
