Thanks to Paw Paw for sending us a king cake for Mardi Gras again. It arrived on Saturday and as of Fat Tuesday, we literally felt a bit fat, having already eaten the whole thing. Henry and I wore the complimentary beads that come with the cake and danced around the house to all the classic Mardi Gras songs. Happy Mardi Gras!
Henry celebrated his first Mardi Gras with the help of his Paw Paw Butch who sent a king cake and themed onesie from New Orleans. For those who don’t know, king cake is a traditional Mardi Gras pastry that has a small baby doll (formerly porcelain, but now usually plastic) hidden inside. The person who gets the slice with the baby is then responsible for obtaining the next king cake. Family lore has it that my parents met at a king cake party.
