It’s Mardi Gras season here in Louisiana! It’s a festive time of the year that goes from the twelfth night after Christmas, January 6th or Epiphany, to Fat Tuesday, the day before the beginning of Lent. Mardi Gras has many traditions and one of the popular ones is bringing a King Cake to share at a party or event.
If you live in Louisiana, it’s easy to pick one up at the market or pastry store. Yum! However, homemade pastries are the best and a person can be really creative with fillings and types of cakes.
