  • It's time for lots of milk, butter, and eggs!

    (And deep frying... Mmmm!)

  • The King Cake

    The cake is named after the 3 kings who came to visit baby Jesus at the Epiphany. Hidden inside the cake is a little trinket (or baby Jesus)! The person who finds the "king" get special privileges.

  • During Mardi Gras, the king cake is decorated in the traditional colors of gold, green, and purple.

  • The "cake" is more like a cinnamon roll rather than a traditional cake.

  • Paczkis

    Paczkis are pastries originally from Poland. They are deep fried pieces of dough with sweet fillings.

  • Often they are topped with powdered sugar.

  • Pancakes! (For Shrove Tuesday)

  • Well, I think I gained 10 pounds just looking at this list.

    Enjoy your Fat Tuesday!
