In case you haven’t noticed, the end of the Mardi Gras season is coming up. I plan to throw on half a dozen strings of beads, crank up the music and let the good times roll. I just spent some time looking at recipes for the traditional King’s Cake to have for Fat Tuesday next week.
They all seem like too much work for too little pay-out. That’s when I happened upon this Zebra cake at The Whimsical Cupcake. I loved the name, but it was the photo that sold me.
My music needs to be Cajun and few do it better than Doug Kershaw. I saw him in concert in a Seattle tavern years ago and it was absolutely frenetic. This clip is from a recent live performance — he still is the Ragin’ Cajun.
