Gras (Fat Tuesday), the day before Ash Wednesday and the beginning
of the Lenten season, falls on a different day each year because
Mardi Gras Day is calculated by counting forty days and seven
Sundays back on the calendar from Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday
always falls on the first Sunday that follows the first full
moon of the Spring. The Carnival season begins January 6th
(12 days after Christmas) on "Twelfth Night" and concludes
on Mardi Gras Day. In Northwest Louisiana we commemorate the
official kickoff of the Carnival season with a community-wide
party sponsored by the local Krewes.
On almost every night that follows January 6th until Mardi
Gras Day there is some sort of Carnival related activity.
In Northwest Louisiana, a Mardi Gras event would not be complete
without a Tubbs X-Treme King Cake.
many Christian countries, the coming of the Wise Men bearing
gifts is celebrated 12 days after Christmas. The celebration,
called "Epiphany" (The Enlightenment), is a time of exchanging
gifts and feasting. All over the world people gather for festive
Twelfth Night celebrations. One of the most popular customs
is still the baking of a special cake in honor of the three
kings... "A King's Cake."
Tradition has now evolved through time to obligate the person
who receives the baby, which represents the Christ Child,
(and is inside every King Cake) to continue the festivities
by hosting another King Cake party. Originally king cakes
were a simple ring of dough with little decoration.
Tubbs X-Treme King Cakes are much more. They are made with
moist pastry dough that is baked and covered with an extreme
amount of filling and cream cheese icing decorated in the
traditional Mardi Gras sugars: Purple representing Justice;
Green representing Faith; Gold representing Power. Hundreds
of thousands of King Cakes are consumed at parties every year,
making the King Cake one of the finest Louisiana traditions.
King Cakes are delivered in a beautifully decorated box with
the history of the king cake printed on the side.
