It’s no Mardi Gras party without a King Cake – or at least a cake with a tiny baby hidden somewhere in, on, or around it. Best advice: “Don’t forget to buy a new, clean tiny baby to hide inside your King Cake.”
The yeasted dough ring cake filled with pastry cream or frangipane is usually served in honour of New Orleans tradition ’round the start of Mardi Gras season. Legend has it whoever finds the tiny baby in their slice has to host next years party!
Inpsired by great Southern flavours, this Pecan Praline Pound Cake with purple, green and gold sprinkles respectively symbolize justice, faith, and power. And the tiny baby represents the strength of tiny babies everywhere, especially the ones playing in the Super Bowl today.
