Mardi Gras Celebration

Ahh yes tis the season after the season when the beads begin to fly and the sweet taste of king cake crosses the lips of the faithful. I love Mardi Gras, I don’t understand a lot of it, but I love it just the same. This year I want to ride the horses and chase the chickens but if I don’t get to, I will settle for weeks of gluttony involving the king cake.

The traditional King Cake is made from twisted strands of cinnamon dough, topped with icing, and sprinkled with purple, green, and gold colored sugar. Today, many additional varieties of King Cake are also available, with fillings such as cream cheese, strawberry, apple, and lemon.

If you are new to South Louisiana or are view our website from far away, plese learn more about this tradition and order a king cake for your Fat Tuesday.
