Unique Desserts In Mississippi

Paul’s Pastry made the top 10 list again!


Mississippi restaurants are known for serving up some of the best food around and that includes desserts. And while many restaurants serve your standard, run of the mill sweets, there are almost just as many that have a signature item or specialty creation all their own. From larger-than-life pies to cakes fit for royalty, these Mississippi restaurants have some of the most unique (and best) desserts around.


9. Paul’s Pastry, King Cake

Paul’s Pastry serves an assortment of sweet treats, but it’s the King Cake the Picayune bakery has become known for. In fact, Paul’s ships more King Cakes than any other establishment in the nation. Yeah, they’re that good.

Paul’s King Cakes at
La Bonbonniere Bake Shops


Feb. 17 marks the culmination of Mardi Gras, an annual festival which commemorates “Fat Tuesday,” the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning of the 40-day Christian period of sacrifice known as Lent.

First celebrated in New Orleans in 1857, Mardi Gras has since become well-known for its flamboyant parades, lively jazz and blues music, bright masks, and costume beads in the traditional colors of purple, green, and gold (representing justice, faith, and power). But perhaps nothing is more symbolic of this famed celebration than King Cake, a cinnamon roll-like baked good with a small plastic baby laden in its folds for a lucky recipient to find.

And thanks to a creative new partnership with the renowned Paul’s Pastry Shop in Picayune, Mississippi, La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppes throughout Central Jersey is now offering the southern bakery’s authentic King Cakes so that local residents can enjoy a bit of Bayou country mystique.
