King Cake

Sometimes it’s fun being a grown up and getting to make the decisions.  I like choosing holidays and making traditions for the kids.  So, although we never grew up celebrating Mardi Gras, yesterday I figured, why not? My oldest has always liked to drape herself in beads on this particular day, so I decided to make a little cake to go with her purple and green bling.   Now, I didn’t create a traditional King Cake, but we just made a little gluten free coffee cake, filled with nuts and cinnamon, and then when the kids weren’t looking, I tucked a whole cranberry inside (instead of the traditional baby).  Lucky Ryland! she got the piece with the treat! King for a day! Declan wanted to make a paper crown, but it was bedtime.  Next year…

Lucky girl! she was overjoyed...simple pleasures.

Everyone needs a little spontaneous fun, especially in February.
