King Cake - What is that?
Oh, see that little baby resting in the center of that king cake? That is the 'prize'. When attending a king cake party, the baby is tucked inside the cake. The lucky person that gets the piece with the baby gets to through the next party. It is usually one each week through the season (season starts Jan. 6 and runs to Mardi Gras Day, aka Fat Tuesday or the day before Ash Wednesday (the beginning of the Lent).
I was lucky enough to get to see one bakery in action, Big Easy Grill LLC located in Pearl River. And even luckier to get a king cake (see above) fresh out of the oven. Let me tell ya - YUM doesn't do it justice. Best king cake ever! Ok, my mouth is watering for another bite, gotta go!
