King Cakes at Rouses

This is a Louisiana-style King Cake with lemon and cream cheese filling topped with colorful sugary icing. King cakes are part of the tradition for Mardi Gras celebration. We bought this particular king cake at Rouses, our favorite supermarket in Ocean Springs Mississippi.We went to Mississippi last week for Mardi Gras. Did you know that ISLE Hotel and Casino sponsored our stay for three nights and all FREE? Oh, Hubby and I had a wonderful time in the cozy hotel. We saw our family and friends out there and we really enjoyed watching the parade, caught some beads too.Oh, see the little baby at the middle of the cake? It's a trinket which represents Baby Jesus. Actually, King Cake takes its name from the Three Kings.Here's one picture that I took during the D'Iberville Mardi Gras parade. If you want to see more pictures of Mardi Gras Parade, check my other blogs. Thanks for stopping by.
