Bite the Baby: Blue Smoke Sellin' King Cake for Mardi Gras

Mmmm, Baby.....
Fat Tuesday is just around the corner, and you know what that means - it's time to eat cakes stuffed with babies! Ok, that actually sounds kind of sick - we're talking about the traditional Mardi Gras treat that has a teeny plastic infant hidden somewhere inside. If you are gobbling it up and bite down on the kiddie, it means good luck for the year. If you want to take part in the tradition, Blue Smoke just announced that they are baking king cakes to order from now until February 21. If you want to order one (they serve 10), call the bakery at least $24 hours in advance and prepare to pony up $32.95 (Flatiron: 212-447-6085, Battery Park City: 212-889-2005).
