The cinnamon filled cake itself sounds delicious, but I am fascinated by the origin and significance of the King Cake.
After reading Paula's explanation of the history and the meaning behind the chosen colors, I understand why the King Cake would garner such loyalty from Mardi Gras enthusiasts. There is even a little surprise baked into the cake for one fortuitous guest.
I also love the suggestions and ideas shared for hosting a children's party. What a fabulous opportunity to teach history and tradition to a child by simply offering this fantastic and colorful treat!
To learn all about the tradition, the history, the significance of the King Cake, plus find out about the little surprise baked into the cake, join Paula at Holly Jolly Holidays. Oh, and of course, she shares the King Cake recipe so we can all make our own Mardi Gras party cake.
