Mardi Gras is fast approaching (have you seen our guide to some of the biggest festivals in Alabama this year?), which means bakeries across the state are cranking out colorful king cakes to celebrate. To kick off the festivities right, here are five of our favorite spots to grab King Cake in Alabama.

1. Warehouse Bakery & Donuts in Fairhope

A fan-favorite and award-winning king cake is back and better than ever at Warehouse Bakery & Donuts in Fairhope. This local bakery offers something for everyone with a variety of sizes and flavors.

2. Mason Dixon Bakery & Bistro in Huntsville

Known for their baked goods catering to different dietary restrictions, Mason Dixon Bakery & Bistro makes a mean gluten-free (and dairy-free-optional) king cake. This one is perfect for those who can’t enjoy a traditional king cake—and even for those who can. Let’s be honest, it rivals the “real thing.”

3. Gourmet Goodies in Daphne

Known for both their sweet and signature savory king cakes, Gourmet Goodies in Daphne sells out quickly this time of year. Made with crawfish, their savory cake is a sell-out, award-winning and unique variety.

4. The Heavenly Donut Co. in Birmingham

If you’re looking for a more manageable king cake, The Heavenly Donut Co. in Birmingham is your spot. Their specialty king cake donut is as delicious as it is adorable, and you’ll want to grab some other flavors while you’re there too.

5. Pollman’s Bake Shop in Mobile

For a classic king cake in the city where Mardi Gras got its start, Pollman’s Bake Shop has you covered. This year, they’re debuting a new recipe and making it fresh daily.
