Cakes Fit for a King: King Cake is the pastry du jour as Carnival, the Mardi Gras celebration, gets underway. Bakeries in New Orleans are churning out the sugary confections that have some sort of trinket, usually a small plastic baby, hidden inside their delicious crumb. The reveler lucky enough to bite into the small doll is bound by tradition to host the Carnival party the next year. So if you’re planning to enjoy one of these pastries in the near future, be careful: you may have your cake and have to make the next one, too.
