No Mardi Gras is complete without king cake, a festive leaven bread complete with yellow, green, and purple sprinkles — and a hidden baby Jesus! The cake is named after the three kings who brought gifts to baby Jesus. Whoever finds the baby must host the following Mardi Gras party and make the king cake. Whether you are stuck with king cake duty this year or want to partake in the Southern tradition, take a look at this king cake recipe, courtesy of Emeril.
