Carnival...and King Cake!

Unless you live near New Orleans, don't waste your money on a store-bought King Cake. More importantly, if you've ever had a "real" King Cake in NOLA, don't buy one - especially from someplace like Kroger in Central Ohio. The disappointment and angst will overtake your taste buds.

I'm foregoing the King Cake baking this year because my ass doesn't need it! This recipe makes TWO King Cakes and Harry won't eat enough of it to save me from myself. I'll just look back with fond memories...

While Mardi Gras isn't until March 8, we're officially into the Carnival season and it's time for King Cake. Well, apparently not in Central Ohio - 'round these parts they seem to think King Cakes are only to be displayed on one day of the year. Silly grocers...

Isn't it pretty?
Central Ohio - you can buy the King Cake babies at Cake Craft. It's on Cleveland Avenue just South of 161 on the east side across the side street from GFS Marketplace.
