The shimmering sugar-coated King Cake consists of a baked Danish dough ring coated with simple white glaze and dressed in Mardi Gras colored sugar of purple, gold, and green. However, in typical New Orleans fashion, bakers throughout "The Big Easy" are creating their own interpretations. Here are a few to savor:
