King Cake
Though this fun and colorful cake is associated with the Mardi Gras festival in New Orleans, the first cake of the year is actually served on January 6th, as a type of kick-off to the Mardi Gras season coming up.As is tradition, there’s a tiny plastic figurine hiding inside the cake. When the cake is sliced, the person who receives the hidden treat is the King or Queen of the day. And as our editor Maryse Chevriere played it as a child, the recipient/winner gets to go under the table and secretly tap another person to be the other Queen or King of the day, kind of like his or her partner-in-crime. You can play it any way you like, but have fun and enjoy this delicious treat! – Yasmin FahrAdapted from " Dam Good Sweet" by David Guas and Raquel Pelzel.
