So Fat Tuesday fell on Craiger's birthday this year. . . February 28th, so after his birthday dinner, we got to eat a king cake which was totally fun.
Every year I make a king cake for Mardi Gras & every year I put a little plastic baby into the cake. Whomever gets the baby in their slice of cake, has to make the cake the next year. Last year Craiger got the cake so he helped me make it (on his birthday). It was a fun project to do together. And he did a great job with the green, yellow, & gold sprinkles.
After dinner we sliced the cake, put on our masks, & necklaces & enjoyed it.
Lorien found the baby in her cake this year so she gets to help me make it next year. She's pretty excited since she's never helped make it before.
Happy Mardi Gras everybody.
