King cake spinoffs have become a seasonal trend. Everything from king cake hamburger buns to boudin king cakes are being seen in Louisiana. There are even local businesses creating their own Mardi Gras masterpieces.

I came across a Facebook post by Botsky’s talking about king cake sweet potato fries. I basically ran down there, and y’all - these fries are amazing! Owner Michael Krajicek calls them Krewe de Patate Douce (Krewe of the Sweet Potato) and they not only have the traditional purple, green and gold sugar sprinkled on top, but they smell just like a fresh king cake!
