The King Cake is a tradition that is part of the Carnival celebration that ends with Mardi Gras. During this time, people have King Cake parties. A small plastic baby is usually hidden in or under a slice of King Cake. The guest that is lucky enough to find the baby in their piece of cake is then expected to host the next party and bake another King Cake. At our church we celebrate Shrove Tuesday on the Tuesday evening before Ash Wednesday with a pancake supper. Shrove Tuesday is another name for Mardi Gras. King Cake is also served at the pancake dinner. The person who finds the baby has to bake the cake for next year’s Shrove Tuesday pancake dinner. It is a really fun tradition and the cake is really good. I decided to try my hand at baking a King Cake. But since I knew it was not your typical cake I decided to buy a cake mix. The mix came with everything I needed including the decorations and of course the little plastic baby.
