The latest culinary creation from Sucre puts a unique twist on a Mardi Gras classic. Sucre partners with Tabasco for a new king cake, the Sugar + Spice King Cake.

According to the bakery, the king cake is made with a braided, buttery dough sweetened with cinnamon and sugar. Unlike the bakery’s traditional version, the Sugar + Spice King Cake is filled with a single bean Swiss chocolate whipped cream cheese filling that is accented with TABASCO Habanero Sauce, which adds hints of mango, papaya, and banana, to strike the perfect balance of sweet and heat.

Tabasco just recently celebrated its 150th birthday.

In lieu of a small plastic baby, you can expect to find a mini TABASCO Sauce bottle inside the Sucré Sugar + Spice King Cake, which will bring good fortune and good flavor to the lucky reveler who finds it.
