Food Fit for a King  Topica Editorial

As you may well be aware, tomorrow is Mardi Gras. Those of us who can't
make it to N'Awlins can still share in some of the traditional aspects
of the celebration. No, I do not mean public nudity or drunkenness.
Instead, let's try something less likely to get you arrested. I mean a
King Cake.

In case you're unfamiliar with it, a King Cake is a circular sugarcoated
bready pastry, with a plastic baby baked in it. The plastic baby, to no
one's surprise, doesn't do a lot to enhance the flavor of the King Cake.
It is, however, linked to the significance of Mardi Gras.

You can find out what's the deal with the plastic baby and how to make
your own King Cake by visiting the MardiGrasDay page. The URL below will
take you to the recipe; once you get to the page, you can get a little
background on the tradition by clicking the italicized "history" link .


If you anticipate celebrations so intense and consuming that they
preclude you from taking a shot at baking a King Cake, that's OK too.
You can order one from the McKenzie Bakery web site. It's too late to
get it in time for Fat Tuesday, but they can deliver one by early next
week. By that time, you ought to be recovered enough to be able to eat
again, right?
