California Bakery Spikes Their King Cakes, Sends 40 People to Hospital
I've had some great king cakes before, but not one this good. The owners of a Los Angeles bakery are in trouble after they doped their cakes, causing hallucinations in 40 people.
No word on what the drug was, but the "only common denominator" is that they all ate a style of king cake called "Rosca de Reyes" from Cholula's Bakery in L.A. It's a Spanish or Latin American version of king cake. Police say the drug was likely synthetic, making the search for the drug all that much harder.
