It’s the most popular food during Mardi Gras – king cake. And, it’s because of these delicious brioche-rich, colorfully iced cakes that Mardi Gras truly is the most WONDERFUL time of the year.
I am not ashamed to admit that I enjoy king cake for breakfast, during my coffee break, and for dessert. In fact, I’ll make any excuse to grab a slice. Who’s with me?
So, how can king cake get any better than this? Well, how about an afternoon of FREE king cakes that you’re invited to test taste!? How sweet!
