Petition Details
Save The King Cake Babies

In response to the disturbing trend in New Orleans of king cake babies being deserted by their parents in record number (Report: 750,000 king cake babies abandoned every year), this petition has been created to help raise awareness and request the establishment of “King Cake Babies Day.”

According to a study, about 750,000 king cake babies are orphaned every year in the Greater New Orleans area. It shows nine out of 10 people who get the baby in a king cake choose not to keep the child, often abandoning it to counter-tops, drawers, and even trash cans.

Help this cause by adding your name to the petition, whereas, you demand the following:

In response to the disturbing trend in New Orleans of king cake babies being deserted by their parents in record number, I stand fully against the abandonment and orphaning of king cake babies.

I, as a resident of Greater New Orleans, support raising awareness of the plight of defenseless king cake babies and hereby formally petition New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell to:

      • Observe King Cake Babies Day annually, beginning in 2020, on Twelfth Night (January 6th), also known as the first day of Carnival and king cake season, and continuing through the end of Mardi Gras;

      • Establish a “King Cake Babies Day” to raise awareness of the harsh predicament our king cake children find themselves in;

      • Allow and encourage those who feel they cannot cope with the responsibility of having to buy the next king cake to relinquish their king cake babies to local bakeries, grocery stores, or churches, in lieu of abandonment and without penalty, thus giving these king cake babies potential new life in future king cakes, crafts or other suitable uses; and,

In observance of this movement, I vow to lovingly accept any king cake baby I may receive, both expectedly and unexpectedly, and commit to continuing the tradition of purchasing the next king cake if I become said recipient of a plastic baby.

Thus, I call on Mayor Cantrell to take the aforementioned action and to protect every king cake baby, regardless of source bakery or “wantedness,” from a sad existence of abandonment.
