All Hail the King Cake
Sometimes it's easy to forget that the rest of America doesn't celebrate Mardi Gras. Which explains why, when I finally found a king cake in Austin and brought it to work, only a few people knew what it was. Most of the others just looked at it and then looked at me like I was crazy for expecting them to eat a neon purple, green, and gold iced ring. The best description of what a king cake is that I could come up with was "it's iced, cinnamony, sugary goodness" but I think it would have been more accurate to say "it's the best alcohol sponge in the whole world"
