Guess what Bernie sent to me all the way from Greenville, South Carolina?
TWO of them!!!!
The cake tastes precisely as a King Cake should too.
A flaky yet moist pastry, with sweet spices and a bit of walnuts.
The traditional yellow, purple and green sprinkles atop a sweet white icing.
Bliss. Sheer bliss I tell you.
Kings Cake is only served between Epiphany and the Fat Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday.
There is still plenty of time to purchase and indulge in a fine Kings Cake.
Of course it helps to be living in, or visiting a southern state, where the bakeries bake up King Cakes for sharing for the entire Mardi Gras season.
(Ellen...hint heavily to someone who is currently residing in the Carolinas to ship you one right away!)
Let the good times ROLL!!
