Fat Tuesday is upon us! That means it's time for the delicious tri-colored delight that is the King Cake. King Cakes are a traditional Mardi Gras dessert that marks the final day of indulgence before Lent begins. The cakes are garnished with traditional Mardi Gras colors; purple, green, and gold. Purple is for justice, green is for faith, and gold is for power. The King Cakes also typically contain a small trinket, in our case a toy baby. Whoever gets the baby in their slice of cake is declared king or queen for the day. He or she is also tasked with hosting the party next year so that the festivities may continue!
Stop in to any Atwater's location to pick up your King Cake. Sold in both small and large sizes there's no reason not to indulge! Snow in the forecast means all the more reason to stock up on cake.
