Each year, Mom sends us a King Cake for Mardi Gras. This year, Mason and I will be there the day after Mardi Gras so I didn't think she would send one but she surprised us with one!
The king cake comes in a box with beads, doubloons, and a Mardi Gras sign.
This was Mason's first King Cake so we showed him the ropes.
He learned quickly. :)
As you can see, all of the sugar is yellow when it's supposed to be green, purple and yellow. The cake was missing one sugar, one spilled all over the box when it was being shipped so we only had one left. These cakes are not cheap to purchase and have them shipped overnight. Needless to say, we were still excited but also disappointed. Mom and I both e-mailed the bakery and just let them know. And, they ended up sending us a whole new cake!!
We certainly were excited about that!! And to our surprise, it was filled with cream cheese which is my favorite!! :))
Yay for KING CAKE!!!! Thanks, GiGi for always spoiling us with it each year!
