King Cake Babies

King Cake Babies

No Mardi Gras is complete without a king cake and every king cake needs a baby!

Traditionally, a small plastic baby is hidden in the king cake. 

Originally, the baby was placed into the cake to symbolize baby Jesus.

Today, the baby symbolizes luck and prosperity to whoever finds it in their slice of cake.  In some traditions, the finder of the baby is designated "king" or "queen" for the evening.  They are also responsible for purchasing next year's king cake or for throwing the next Mardi Gras party.

    Living in Texas its hard to find good King Cake so I make them. These babies are a good size to put in the cakes I make for others who suffer from stale king cake syndrome this time of year. One of our little babies was born missing parts of his arms so we were not able to use him for the intended purpose. He has since been adopted by a very loving 10 yr old who has given him a new purpose in life. A "Mardi Gras" necklace of Venus de Milo.
