If you get the baby, the next one’s on you. The first time someone told me this I was utterly confused. In short, the name “King Cake” originates from the biblical “Three Kings” and the plastic baby inside represents baby Jesus. Now this is my first time living in Louisiana so I’m sure I’ll gain more knowledge and taste several variations of the traditional Mardi Gras dessert.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
