Let the Good Times Roll - It's Mardi Gras!

We once had an undergraduate several years ago who hailed from New Orleans! She introduced us to the traditions of that city and Mardi Gras. This included King Cakes and we had one then for cake hour. Needless to say a cake hour tradition was founded and every year from King King Cakes in New Orleans we get our baby holding cake and Laissez Les Bonnes Temps Roulent! Thanks to the diligence of the company we get the reminder every year and place our order. The cake promptly arrives for our Mardi Gras cake hour. It requires a little self assembly as the fully decorated cake can get shaken up during shipping. A pastry bag of icing and three small containers with the colored sugar are included.  The cake every year is very good - tasty and not at all dried out due to how well it is prepped and shipped!  We highly recommend the company so if you want to get the real thing give them a try!

Look what Fedex brought!

It requires some self assembly so it doesn't get deformed during shipping1

The icing was easily applied!

And then we added the granular sugar in Mardi Gras colors!

Orpheus assembles the gang with their beads!

And we have the baby!

A little bit embedded in the pastry!

All cleaned up!

For a cleaner portrait!!
