The King Cake is served in New Orleans during the Carnival season, which begins on Jan. 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, and runs until Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday), the day before Ash Wednesday. The cake is a yeast bread, usually filled with a cream-cheese or cinnamon-sugar filling. In the colorful spirit of Mardi Gras, the cake is topped with a creamy icing and decorated with colored sprinkles — gold for power, green for faith and purple for justice. Traditionally, a plastic baby or a bean is hidden inside the cake. (Caution: Cake eaters need to be warned!) The person who gets the piece with the baby/bean is considered lucky — the King or Queen of the party. That person must also provide the cake for the next year’s Mardi Gras celebration.
