King Cakes are a staple of the Mardi Gras season. Originally, the king cake was made with a Danish dough and a cinnamon filling, but like many traditions, king cakes evolved to suit all kinds of tastes.
Many of those tastes evolved thanks to Paul’s Pastry Shop in Picayune.
“We have the largest selection of king cakes in the United States,” said Sherri Thigpen, owner of Paul’s Pastry Shop. “We’re trademarked as the Home of the Fruit and Cream Cheese Filled King Cakes.”
