IT'S TIME FOR KING CAKE

The King Cake tradition has been
associated with Mardi Gras,
since the tradition came to New Orleans
from France in 1870.

This pastry oval is always decorated
in purple (justice), green (faith) and
gold (power), resembling the crown 
honoring the Wise Men who visited
the Christ Child on Epiphany.

A tiny baby is usually baked inside the cake,
and whoever gets that slice is
named "king" for the day!

  4. And, if you "get" the baby you have to provide the next King Cake!
