It is King Cake Season in New Orleans
Sometimes I get a really good idea. I had planned a skype session for February 25th between Boomarked, the Patrick Taylor book group, and the STAC-Ms, the book group from Lake Norman Charter in Huntersville, NC. This date falls right in the middle of king cake season for Mardi Gras. King Cake parties are ubiquitous in our area this time of year. I decided that the two book groups should have a virtual king cake party. Mardi Gras colors are purple, green and gold, so king cakes are decorated with the colors of the season as you can see on the left.
We were all amazed by the size of the library at LNC. Wish we could visit their library in person.
We eat a lot of king cake this time of year, but we still love it!
