What if I told you that you could become a King or Queen by finding a plastic baby in your cake? Impossible? Well, not during Mardi Gras! According to NPR, finding a small trinket became commonplace in the 19th century when Twelfth Night Revelers started putting a bean in the cake. This custom evolved to finding a baby trinket in the cake during the 1950s and continues to live on to present day. If you’re the lucky one to find this baby trinket, then you’ll become the King or Queen of the ball.
According to History, Mardi Gras is a Christian holiday celebrated on the day before the season of Lent as a way to get all your indulgence out before fasting for Lent. The first American Mardi Gras took place on March 3, 1699, when French explorer Pierre Le Myone d’lberville and Sieur Bienville head a small celebration in modern-day New Orleans, Louisiana. In the following decades, New Orleans and other French settlements celebrated the holiday with street parties, masked balls, and elaborate dinners. Approximately 1.4 million visitors celebrate Mardi Gras in the streets of New Orleans to participate in the iconic festivities.
