Mardi Gras King Cakes

The Tradition of King Cakes

   The Mardi Gras season officially begins on the Twelfth Night of Christmas, or January 6th known as the Epiphany - or Little Christmas. Since the third century the Epiphany has been observed as the day Three Wise Men finally found the infant Jesus. King Cakes, therefore were initiated to celebrate this holy day and a small baby doll is placed in each cake as symbol of "Finding the baby Jesus".

   King Cakes are oval shaped and decorated in carnival colors of green, yellow and purple. As the cake is cut, each person looks to see if his piece contains the small baby. The person who finds the baby brings the next King Cake to the next celebration.

  Start this tradition in your home, class or office. No Mardi Gras is complete without a King Cake from Rickey Meche's Donuts. King Cake season ends on Fat Tuesday. The day before Ash Wednesday.
