King Cake History

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.

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!
