Thankfully the King Cake is as big a tradition as the parades, balls and beads. Miss Nola has the luxury of eating them as often as she wants since she is in New Orleans. Unfortunately I can't do that since I don't live in there anymore. That is okay because I started a tradition of having my King Cake shipped to me wherever I am in the country. Since I left New Orleans almost five years ago my cakes have been delivered to:
- New York City
- Bloomington, IN
- Fairfield, NJ
- Philadelphia, PA
- Washington D.C.

It is funny to share my cake with people who have no idea what it is. The funniest comment I heard was in Indiana where someone told me the King Cake was only a giant Krispy Kreme doughnut! After they actually tried it they took it back and said that it was "way better than Krispy Kreme"! No really?! I wouldn't spend all this money just to make sure I get my cake every year if it was just a doughnut!
Order the King Cake. Gambino's ships their cakes nicely. This one traveled over 1000 miles and made it in one piece!

Heat the icing packet and try your hardest to put all of it on the king cake and not in your mouth.
|This takes a little skill|
|I might have had a taste or two!|
Spread the icing which I know you did not eat onto the cake. Again, you must try and refrain from eating the icing.

Sprinkles! This is the fun part. Go crazy and just throw them on the cake. It doesn't have to be perfect because no one cares about proper sprinkle placement--at least I hope not!
|Use only one or them all|
|Do not hold back!|
|Shake it on there!|
|What a mess but it sure is fun.|
|Only share if you want to but it is more fun with friends!|
|Whoever finds the baby buys the next cake!|
Happy Mardi Gras and Super Bowl!
