King Cake for Fat Tuesday, February 13

 

 

Mardi Gras is celebrated on the day before Ash Wednesday. It’s a wild party celebrated all over the world although we take our inspiration from New Orleans where it involves lots of costumes, parades and music. The cake was introduced to New Orleans in 1870 by the French and honors the 3 kings. The colors were created by the Krewe de Rex in 1872. Purple for justice, green for faith and gold for power. The tradition of the baby originally symbolizes the baby Jesus but also luck and prosperity. The tradition is to hide the baby in the cake and whoever finds it is crowned king or queen for the evening, but also is responsible for providing next year’s cake. We have the baby on the outside so that the person who buys the cake can hide it if they choose to.

 

Our king cakes are a brioche dough filled with a lemony cream cheese and decorated with colorful sugar icing.
