K is for King Cake
The New Orleans descendant of the French Galette des Rois, this yeast-risen cake is characiterized by its rich (usually cream cheese, praline, or both) filling and thick glaze (glaze rather than frosting is ok in this case, because of said rich filling). It crops up in bakeries after the Epiphany, and remains a stock item until Fat Tuesday (a final last hurrah before the restraint of Lent). Oh, and it also has a prize--a feve--usually a little naked baby inside. But approach prize-seeking carefully, ‘cos while whoever finds the prize is declared King, that person is assigned to buy the cake next time.

Hoo Ya from down on the bayou! Here at Sugar Bakery, we've just sold out of whole King Cakes for tomorrow, but we will be slicing a few of them tomorrow, including some mississippi mudd cupcakes, bourbon pecan cupcakes, and of course, red velvet, a southern favorite!

Bakery Nouveau is also making the King Cakes so you can also check there as well!
Genuinely so excited about this! I will definitely have coloring for all (not just my 3-year-old) tomorrow for Mardi Gras feasting. I hope we don't get too much New Orleans cheesecake on these....

This is a great share, I printed this out for my daughter and was also able to talk about fat Tuesday which I totally forgot about until I read this post. Love your site!
