Laissez le bon temps rouler

Suzy's kids have been vying for the plastic baby since they were big enough to enjoy the sheer pleasure of the Mardi Gras "King Cake".
If you haven't yet partaken in this delightful Big Easy tradition, there is no better time then right now. Send one to school with the kids or just enjoy it at home.
The excitement builds, as each person waits to see in whose slice of cake holds the plastic baby. While custom holds that the person who finds the baby in their slice will be rewarded with good luck, that person is also traditionally responsible for bringing the King Cake to the next party or gathering.
