Someone from New Orleans sent us a King Cake for Mardi Gras. In the United States New Orleans is the most popular place to celebrate Mardi Gras. They have all kinds of zany festivities and parades like no where else.
The King Cake is a braided Danish Pastry with cinnamon. It is essential that it is colored with purple (for justice) green (for faith) and gold for power. The cake also contains ONE PLASTIC BABY. According to my husband, the person that gets the baby gets to be King for a Day!….. Well that’s pretty cool!
So we go to try a piece. Neither of us ever had King Cake before.
I’m afraid I’m going to choke on a plastic baby so I pull a small piece to taste it….I don’t feel a plastic baby…..guess I’m safe….Ummm it’s pretty good…taste like more than cinnamon…..something like nesselrode (preserved Italian Fruit).
I go to look at the colors in the cake…….I got the baby! I thought it would be baked inside but it was impaled on the bottom.
Happy Fat Tuesday! …….and that’s WTFork is a King Cake.
