March 4 will be Mardi Gras Day. Although parades and carnivals start in January.
My biggest and busiest Mardi Gras doings is the king cake. You must get one or two every week for either home, work, birthdays, or for any reason. You don't really need a reason to get a king cake. Just get it and enjoy.
At the bakery today they were piled everywhere in every filling you could want.
You know there is a little baby in every cake?
This will be our food of choice for the next 6 weeks or so.
Deliciousness in every bite.
