King Cake season is in full swing, and a lot of people don't know that the filled Mardi Gras pastry is actually a Mississippi tradition. It all started with Paul's Pastry Shop out of Picayune in 1972, when bakers decided to spice king cakes up a bit. Sherri Thigpen is the current owner of the establishment.
