It's no secret that our favorite colors this time of year in the Bayou State are green, gold, and purple. Isn't everyone's favorite flavor king cake until Easter comes around? King cake is a New Orleans delicacy, a perfectly smothered brioche cake with white icing and sugar in the colors of Mardi Gras green, purple, and gold. In many cases, there's a plastic baby, hidden inside each one. I prefer when they load it up with cream cheese inside and leave the baby outside of the cake.

The beauty of king cake is that Shreveport-Bossier offers their own spin on the classic Mardi Gras dessert. Not only do several shops and restaurants offer unique takes on the delicious Louisiana treat, but chefs and bakers are stepping up to show off their cool takes on King Cake in different forms. Check out some of our favorites made right here in Shreveport-Bossier.
