Patti LaBelle Has Two New Desserts for You

Step aside, sweet potato pie!

Published January 6, 2016

Her sweet potato pies were the talk of the holiday season, and now, fresh into the new year, Patti LaBelle is following up with two new desserts. Now, also sold exclusively at Walmart stores, will be Patti's Vanilla Pound Cake and LaBelle's Caramel Cake.

Walmart announced on Monday that it has started selling the pound cake, a "classic bundt cake drizzled with velvety vanilla icing," for $6.44, $2.46 more than the original sweet potato pie.

The caramel cake, a three-layered yellow cake with butter cream, "drizzled with a rich caramel pour," will retail for $13.94 and will be available for purchase on January 18.

The two newly offered desserts have some big shoes to fill as Walmart sold more than $1 million worth of Patti's sweet potato pies in one weekend after the video of James Wright Chanel's review went viral.

For those who are still interested in trying Patti's sweet potato pie, Walmart has since restocked their shelves with the dessert after being sold out for a minute.
