Even those who haven’t made their way to New Orleans have likely seen king cakes in their local groceries and bakeries starting in early January.
While we may associate Fat Tuesday and these delicious cakes with beads and booze these days, the cake tradition started with Three Kings Day, a holiday that happens 12 days after Christmas. While there are tons of great Mardi Gras recipes out there, we love king cake the best.
King cake is a ring of sweet pastry that’s covered in lots of icing and purple, yellow, and green sprinkles, and you don’t have to travel to the Big Easy to get one for yourself! Here is where you can find King Cakes right here in Birmingham!
