A traditional New Orleans king cake served only during the carnival season. It is made of a sweet dough, shaped like a ring, and decorated with icing, sprinkles, and a small plastic baby. The person who finds the baby in their slice of cake is said to have good luck and is crowned the King or Queen of the Day. The traditional colors used to decorate the cake are purple, green, and gold, which correspond to justice, faith, and power, respectively.
