And a Cake Made For Kings...

In Hattiesburg, or New Orleans, we would just go to the store (or bakery, if we wanted to spend a little more) to buy a King Cake.


But, despite finding a very Mardi Gras-like costume for Halloween, 


Mardi Gras is not very big here is South Asia. 

So, Kristie made her first attempt at a homemade King Cake. The reviews were glowing

And we are sure the Cakes will only get better with time, practice, and a touch of Gulf Coast memories added in.
