  • What is the purpose of the baby in the King Cake?
  • Originally, the baby was placed in the cake to symbolize baby Jesus. Today, the baby symbolizes luck and prosperity to whoever finds it in their slice of cake.
  • That person is also responsible for purchasing next year's cake, or for throwing the next Mardi Gras party.
  • King Cakes are traditionally eaten as part of the tradition of Epiphany, from January 6th through Mardis Gras Day.
  • Epiphany comes from a Greek word that means "to show." Jesus first showed himself to the three wisemen and to the world on this day.
  • As a symbol of this Holy Day, a tiny plastic baby is placed inside each King Cake.
  • The King Cake tradition is thought to have been brought to New Orleans from France in 1870.
  • Sugar Decoration, 1.75 inches long.
  • The fully edible sugar versions are lightly airbrushed to a soft flesh tone.
  • Ingredients: sugar, egg whites, modified corn starch, FD&C Blue #1, Red #3, Yellow #5, Yellow #6.
