With Mardi Gras Season in full swing, native New Orleanian, celebrity chef David Guas, is bringing Mardi Gras to Union Market with his limited-time shop that will serve whole and by-the-slice “BB” King Cakes!
The classic ring-shaped brioche style cake, which The Washington Post hailed amongst its top 5 in the country, are piped with signature Creole Cream Cheese Filling and decked-out with purple, green and gold sugar-flecked icing. Each cake comes in a gift box with carnival beads, a traditional plastic baby to hide within the cake, and a postcard sharing the history of this iconic treat.
In keeping with the New Orleans tradition, Guas will also be putting his signature sweet spin on the classic praline, with the introduction of his very own Graslines – a buttery sugar cookie topped with purple, green and gold sprinkles and a freshly baked praline. You can snag batch of his healthy, snackable-packable GrasNola, sweetened with honey and tossed in burnt-brown butter, which coats the gluten-free oats for a flavor-packed crunch in every bite.
