Mardi Gras King Cake

Good morning, everyone! My sister has been pestering me for years to get a King Cake for the Mardi Gras season from our favorite place to go in New Orleans, Sucre....a delicious confectionery/bakery shop. I finally decided to order one this year, a plus in their favor...they deliver!

Our King Cake came in yesterday by FedEx! Woohoo!

Don't you love the box it came in? And inside was well wrapped King Cake complete with strands of beads in the traditional Mardi Gras colors, a card describing the history of the Kind Cake, and even a tiny purple baby charm in case you are taking the cake to a party and wanted someone to find it in their slice;)

Some would say that it might be a bit pricey for a cake, but I've only had one other King Cake in my life from a local bakery and it pales in comparison to the yumminess of Sucre's creation!

I highly, HIGHLY recommend Sucre for King Cakes! Not to mention all their other deletable goodies at their shop in New Orleans!
