The Mardi Gras King Cake tradition is a festive custom celebrated primarily in the southern regions of the United States, notably in Louisiana. It is closely associated with the Carnival season, particularly during the weeks leading up to Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras.

The King Cake itself is a sweet pastry, often in the form of a ring or oval-shaped cake, decorated with colorful icing or sugar in the traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green, and gold, symbolizing justice, faith, and power respectively. What sets the King Cake apart is the hidden trinket, typically a small plastic baby figurine, baked within the cake.

The tradition involves the sharing of the King Cake among friends, family, or colleagues during Mardi Gras festivities. The person who discovers the hidden trinket in their slice of cake is bestowed with various privileges, such as being crowned "king" or "queen" for the day and often tasked with hosting the next gathering or providing the next King Cake. This custom fosters a sense of camaraderie and adds an element of surprise and excitement to Mardi Gras celebrations.
