“A close-up of a King Cake on a yellow background. A King Cake is a festive and traditional Mardi Gras treat more specific to New Orleans, LA. It tastes like huge cinnamon roll (you cut it in pieces just like other cakes) dripping with LOTS of icing and colored sugar on top (in green, purple and yellow — the official Mardi Gras colors). YUM!”

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — It’s officially Mardi Gras season and with the cancellation of numerous events, the king cake is expected to reign supreme this carnival. Louisianans may now vote on which local bakery should take top honors, thanks to the sixth annual King Cake Snob awards.

People may vote through Feb. 9 at and be automatically entered in a weekly drawing to win their very own king cake.

There are two awards categories: traditional and filled. Any bakery in Louisiana can lay claim to the prize.

The 2020 competition resulted in reviews and votes for cakes from nearly 160 Louisiana bakeries, according to a release from King Cake Snob. Last year’s winners were Antoine’s Bakery King Cakes, with locations in Gretna and Metairie, for “Best Traditional” and Caluda’s King Cake of New Orleans, for “Best Filled.”
