Tonight after dinner we had the cutting of the King Cake. This cake is associated with the Epiphany in the Christmas season in a number of countries and and in other countries with Mardi Gras and Carnival. I didn't make the traditional King Cake I made a white cake with sprinkles in the batter. I iced it with chocolate icing and the the traditional colors of green, gold and purple for Mardi Gras. The traditional cake is almost like a giant cinnamon roll. This is a picture of one.: There is usually a little trinket that is in the cake, as you can see in the middle of this pictures. It is often a small baby that is representing Baby Jesus. The person who gets the piece with the trinket has verious privlages and obligations. For our house they just get a prize.
Tonights winner was Gabby- she found this and she won this-. She is such a chocoholic!
It was fun, now time to start planning for St. Patricks Day!
Have a great evening. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
