History of the Mardi Gras King Cake: The tradition of sharing King Cake with family and friends during the Mardi Gras season began in the middle ages and was brought to the southern United States by colonists from France and Spain. Beginning on the Epiphany (Twelfth Night/January 6th) and culminating with Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras day), the season is celebrated with parties and parades in advance of the start of Lenten season. Today in New Orleans a pot of steaming coffee and a King Cake constitute a party and the lucky individual who finds the baby in (under) their slice of cake must host the next party, thereby continuing the social gatherings throughout the season. Mam Papaul's has created this easy to prepare Mardi Gras King Cake that virtually everyone can make, regardless of their culinary skill. Enjoy the Mardi Gras experience by making your own homemade Mardi Gras King Cake and say I made it myself. The colors of Mardi Gras signify the following: Purple signifies justice, green signifies faith, gold signified power. - Nancy Wilson.
