Buttercream Bliss Gourmet Cupcakes Offers Traditional King Cakes!
King Cakes are a vibrant part of the Mardi Gras tradition in New Orleans!
What is a King Cake?  Here is a brief history:
A popular custom is the baking of a special cake in honor of the three kings, called "A King's Cake."
The start of Mardi Gras season on January 6th is marked by the Epiphany, the day the Three Kings found baby Jesus.
In New Orleans, King Cakes are baked in honor of Epiphany and King Cake Parties are held During Mardi Gras season (usually on Fridays).
King Cakes are made of a rich, braided dough, and are oval in shape to show the unity of all Christians.
They are usually frosted or glazed, and decorated in traditional Mardi Gras colors:
Green, representing Faith; Gold, representing Power; Purple, representing Justice.
Tucked away inside the cake is a plastic figurine which represents the baby Jesus.
New Orleans tradition has evolved to obligate the person who "finds the baby" to
continue the festivities by hosting the next King Cake party (or at least purchasing
and bringing the King Cake to the office, etc.), as well as crown that person "King"
for the day!  Finding the baby is also said to bring good luck.  Hundreds of thousands
of King Cakes are consumed at parties, offices, and in homes every year.
Start this tradition today in your home, class, or office.
King Cake season ends on Fat Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday).
