Maison Kayser Rolls Out the King Cake

Aw, that cake is wearing a crown!

Eric Kayser, the Parisian baker who opened up shop this year on the Upper East Side, is now taking orders for his take on the seasonal galette des rois, which will become available at the shop on December 29. Kayser's take involves the traditional mix of puff pastry and almond and pastry creams, but the baker encloses these within a shell of "inverse" puff pastry. Meanwhile, MadParkNews notices construction is underway for Maison Kayser's second New York location, at 921 Broadway. A representative tells Grub Street it will open in March. [MK, MadParkNews]
