Mardi Gras cakes

We are in Mardi Gras celebration time here in the south, lots of parades every weekend. Beads, tokens, masks are all the fashion around town. There are Balls and Parties every where, so lots of glitz and glamor in their party wear.  We however do tend to avoid the parades and parties, crowds just are not our thing any more. But we might give a little thought about getting a king's cake, they look so good.  To my northern friends a King's Cake is like a big round cinnamon bun with a glaze icing and colored sugar. The three colors of the sugar are Purple (representing Justice), Green (representing Faith) and Gold (representing Power)
Plus there is always a little plastic baby baked inside.. The person who finds the baby must purchase the next King's Cake or host the next Mardi Gras party.
I kind of like Wilton's Mardi Gras Party Cake...
I think it is just so pretty
