Needless to say we had a downpour, but everyone had a good laugh while we moved 20 kingcakes under cover. The rain only lasted about 30 minutes so we continued on to eat, drink and parade.
These are the categories that were judged:
Best Gourmet Kingcake
– flavors other than cream cheese, strawberry, and apple
Best Traditional Kingcake
– plain/cinnamon, cream cheese, strawberry or apple
Best Homemade Creation
– king of cakes….anything goes
Most Creative Costume
– get out your glue gun
Our neighbor, Angela, won two categories
(Best Gourmet and Best Homemade)
with her Bacon Maple Kingcake.
It was a clear favorite!
Eve and I tied for best costume because
she dressed as a kingcake baby, and I have one in my belly.
