Kings cake is a must-have dessert during Mardi Gras.These cakes are especially popular in the Southern United States. Each cake is baked with a figurine and the lucky person to gets it is crowned King or Queen of the day (however, in some states, it means the person who receives the trinket will have a baby soon). The cake is similar to a cinnamon roll with sweet icing and Mardi Gras colored sugar sprinkles. If you are not planning on traveling down south this winter for the occasion, make kings cake at home to celebrate.
