Photo: Mardi Gras Cake

"Fat Tuesday" or Mardi Gras isn't big here in South Carolina. Some people try to act like it is, but it's not. But I saw this cake while looking at groceries yesterday. We celebrated Mardi Gras in school, but I haven't since elementary. While I would like to the see the real deal in New Oreleans, I hear things get too crazy (and scary) there. Happy Mardi Gras to those who like it!

Mardi Gras in New Orleans is not for the faint of heart, or a whole lot more, too.

I've never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans either. I hear they have a pretty wild time at the Carnevale in Venice, Italy this time of year too with very elaborate costumes.

I'm making pancakes tonight. That's what we do on Fat Tuesday in Canada. MUCH more sedate.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Feasting and being crazy the day before 30 days of pious living is an interesting concept.

Had no idea it was Mardi Gras day. Have never celebrated it.

I did make pancakes, it's also called Pancake Tuesday I heard.

It definitely gets crazy in New Orleans! We live in LA for 2.5 years and it's definitely a big deal.

I've love to go to NOLA and experience Mardi Gras at least once in my life. Paczkis are what everyone here is eating today.

That's a really nice looking cake.

I love that cake!
Happy Mardi Gras:)

For all its hedonistic reputation, Mardi Gras has something to do with Lent, meaning it has something to do with the Roman Catholic Church. If there's not a lot of Roman Catholics where you live, that's probably why it's not a big deal there.

We just don't have it in us here in the Carolinas to celebrate Mardi Gras but I would love to see the real thing too.

In Chicago, everybody was buying paczkis for Fat Tuesday. My daughter always goes to buy them. It’s just an excuse to get something sweet. Here in Hawaii, everybody’s buying malasadas which is just a Portuguese sugary donut without a hole.
