I'm one of those people who like to celebrate just about anything. Mardi Gras was on Lorien's birthday this year, so I waited a week before we actually celebrated it (because I was sick of making cakes). But once I was ready, I had a LOT of fun making a
Mardi Gras KING CAKE.
It's not really a cake, it's more of a giant cinnamon roll/donut thing, but it was fun. And I decorated it with green, yellow, & purple sprinkles & mardi gras beads.
We had a full family home evening dedicated to it & the kids had a BLAST. The "cake" was delicious & we all loved the beads. Thank you Nancy for sending us the fun cake mix & the beads. We had a LOT of fun.
