Bake a King Cake

King Cake is a must for any Mardi Gras celebration. It's a tried and true tradition that is as delicious as it is fun! This scrumptiously regal treat may take some time but it is well worth the wait! Baking with your kids is a great way to teach them measurement and organization skills and it gives them great practice following directions! Spend an afternoon with your child in the kitchen and teach her some Mardi Gras history and some King Cake fun facts as you celebrate the holiday! Nothing beats this sweet lesson in Mardi Gras tradition.
