Love my mom! She just sent me a King Cake from Sucre in New Orleans. As a child, I remember fighting with my younger siblings to find the baby inside, and not realizing the true meaning.
Pretty isn’t it? Here is a great link explaining the history of King Cake.
I have had a hard time finding one here in NC, but finally found Fresh Market carries them a week before Fat Tuesday(whatttttttt!!!!!) However, the one from Sucre is by far better:) Happy Mardi Gras, y’all!
