Sometimes Valentine's Day falls smack in the middle of Mardi Gras but this year we have a later Easter and hence a later Mardi Gras. So now that all of the red, pink & white is gone it's time to roll out the purple, gold & green.In this instance it's in the form of King's Cakes. Oh yay, they are so good.
My mouth is watering as I write this entry, having just come from Something Sweet Bakery. I have blogged about this little gem of a shop before. It makes me happy just to see their displays.
Look at all of the Bacchanalian treats, just waiting to be consumed in our mad rush to cram as much decadence into our bodies as we can before the onset of Lent, for those who observe it, or until folks get tired & start worrying about their bathing suit figures.
