Mardi Gras King Cake Recipe

I think most of y'all know I am originally from South Louisiana. Even though I now live in Florida, I still love Mardi Gras...especially king cake.

So I found a great recipe for King Cake that I wanted to share with you: http://www.gumbopages.com/food/dessert/king-cake.html
If you prefer to order a premade king cake, you can try Rouse's or Haydel's.

Mardi Gras (aka Fat Tuesday) this year is February 24, 2009. (The date of Mardi Gras fluctuates this year based on the date of Easter.) What many don't realize is that Mardi Gras is a "season" that begins on January 6th (Three Kings Day) and goes through Fat Tuesday. Mardi Gras season ends at 11:59pm on Fat Tueday as the next day is "Ash Wednesday". Pretty interesting uh?
