Twelfth Night has come and gone, and you, dear reader, may officially enjoy your King Cake from now through Fat Tuesday. My youngest has already eaten one, with little-to-no help. I’m leaving here in an hour to pick up two more for the week, this time sharing with friends and family.
I’d bet most of you are in a similar situation. Love it or hate it, the King Cake is an important piece of our Mardi Gras puzzle. It stands to reason that we need to find, in an official fashion, who is serving up the best version of that bread-like, sugar-coated, cream cheese-filled pastry. Your chance at that is none other than the 2023 King Cake-Off!
