Carnival time means King cake season for some

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The bakers at Sweet Stuff in Biloxi are up at 6 a.m.weekly pounding, rolling and baking the cake that has become a staple during Mardi Gras season. They've already begun shipping dozens of orders of their many King cakes.

Though the season is short this year, Sweet Stuff owner Mary Vuyovich says they expect to make thousands of these Carnival favorites.

"I would say we're going to do 5,000," says Vuyovich.

She says making the delicious bundles of dough is no easy task.

It could take anywhere from two to three hours to make the King cakes.

They start off as dough. Later bakers add liquids and yeast. After rolling the dough and putting in different fillings, the cakes head to the oven.

After baking for 20 minutes and cooling off for about an hour, bakers add icing, sprinkles and the traditional Mardi Gras colors: purple, green and gold, in the form of sugar.

Vuyovich says one of their more popular King Cakes is "The Millionaire," a King cake covered in caramel and chocolate.
