It’s mardi gras season down in the boot and well… some of the festivities may not be “family friendly”…. But I do have a one of the tastiest traditions and adapted it making it accessible to anyone regardless where you may be.
This tasty treat is called the KING CAKE. It’s a decadent cinnamon cake usually filled with a delicious filling (my favorite-cream cheese). Topped with the colors of royalty- purple, gold and green and a plastic baby. Tradition says one who find the baby in their serving will have “good luck” or has to buy the next one. Ha.
Last year in nyc I wanted my little one to have his own mini king cake to decorate so we opted for a donut and he had at it! It’s been a tradition ever since.
Here is the our toddler friendly mardi gras last year complete with a mini parade!
