King Cakes : A Carnival Tradition

The conclusion of Epiphany officially begins the Mardi Gras season in south Louisiana, and even more excitingly– means the start of King Cake season. The beloved carnival treat is a tradition that Baton Rouge bakeries have been serving up for decades.

From 12th Night until Mardi Gras Day hundreds of thousands of King Cakes will be consumed. From traditional, to new-age twists and king-cake flavored items, no two are the same.
