Let them eat (king) cake


One of the tastiest traditions of Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) is king cake, a sweet confectionery sprinkled with purple, green and gold sugar. Often compared to a brioche, king cakes have a tiny plastic doll (some say representing baby Jesus) hidden inside; whoever gets that piece of cake throws the next party!

Louisiana’s Office of Tourism is throwing its own party, serving king cakes in Mardi Gras-inspired food trucks in Washington, DC; Atlanta; Houston; and Dallas. It’s free and our way of enticing tourists to visit Louisiana.

So come “pass a good time” Mardi Gras day, Tuesday, Feb. 13.
