King Cakes are a special part of the Mobile Mardi Gras tradition … often described as a brioche rather than an actual cake, with just the perfect amount of cinnamon. 

Watch out before you bite into a King Cake, there may be a tiny baby in your piece; if you get it, the next King Cake is on you!  

In Mobile, King Cake comes in many forms including cocktails (yes, we said cocktails) ice cream, honey butter and so much more. Take a look at a few places to get your King Cake fix in Mobile!

Local bakeries, eateries, and grocery stores will compete to see who has the tastiest King Cake and King Cake-Inspired Treat on the Gulf Coast. This family-friendly event will feature live music, local vendors, kids’ activities, specialty cocktails, King Cake tastings, and more!
