Fat Tuesday is rapidly approaching and somehow the whole Mardi Gras thing always leaves me remembering an old job and one of my favorite bosses. Every year at this time, our office was sent a King Cake by a colleague my boss did business with in New Orleans.
I miss that job, I miss that boss, but possibly most of all - I miss that King Cake. Our whole office loved tearing into the fresh yeasty brioche like ring of cake topped with sugary white icing and sparkly sprinkles in green, yellow and purple. The cake was a nice combination of pretty and scrumptious...and if you were lucky, you got the Baby Jesus in your slice.
If I have time tomorrow, I'm going to try to bake up some King Cake Cupcakes and bring them to work. Maybe I'll start a tradition at my new office. Ya never know.....
