Thanks for sharing the link Gale.  I just saw some of the colored cakes at a grocery store where I take my Mom shopping.  The ones they had were huge and kind of pricey.  Really need a big family to put away one of those lol.

The one I want to make is a double recipe for two but I'll just cut it in half and make one,The recipe that I found has brown sugar, butter, nuts and raisin filling,it sounds good.

The Epiphany or Little Christmas is observed on January 6th in many Christian churches. This day has come to be known as "Kings Day."

Since the 300's the day has honored the meeting of the three Wise Men with the infant Jesus. King Cakes became a part of the celebration to symbolize the "finding of the infant Jesus."

Traditionally,

King Cakes

are oval-shaped to show unity of all Christians. The Mardi Gras season, which begins on this "Twelfth Night" (January 6th), is expressed on King Cakes by using the carnival colors of purple, green and gold. As a King Cake is cut, each person awaits anxiously for his piece to locate the small baby.

Thanks for the info.  I've seen them in stores and bakeries; but have never tasted one.  Perhaps this is the year to do so!
