What Is A King Cake?
Many countries have their version of the King Cake. You can learn more about all the different versions of King Cakes on Wikipedia. If you aren’t familiar with the traditional American King Cakes, they are oval-shaped, made with sweet dough, and decorated with colorful icing in green, purple, and gold. Each color has a significant meaning. For example, the green color stands for Faith, while the purple stands for Justice and the Gold for Power.
Catholics started the tradition of this cake, and the colors symbolize a jeweled crown honoring the Wise Men who brought gifts to baby Jesus. King Cakes are eaten on Epiphany and around Mardi Gras, which occurs the day before Ash Wednesday, and Lent, known as Fat Tuesday.

Customarily, a plastic baby is inside the cake, but Cakemasters Bakery places the baby on top of the cake due to safety reasons and choking hazards.
