7 St. Louis Bakeries Offering King Cake and Other Mardi Gras Desserts

A traditional Louisiana king cake.
King cake is a Mardi Gras tradition. There are Louisiana versions, French versions, Spanish versions, and, thankfully for Gut Check, St. Louis versions, too. The classic Louisiana king cake is essentially a giant cinnamon roll bedazzled with purple, yellow and green sugar sprinkles and a baby figurine or trinket buried in the center of the cake.

Eager to find king cake in St. Louis, Gut Check called a handful of local bakeries to find the best Mardi Gras dessert deals in town.
