I first discovered the king cake baby cake platter in a shop in the French Quarter, and finally ordered one from Niche Modern Home.
The cake platter by Sea Gem Studios is 12" round bead embossed with a signature king cake baby with crown in the center. I love how it fits a small king cake. It also fits perfectly on top my cake plate and glass dome. This is a great addition to my Mardi Gras decor.
The story of the baby:
Today, a tiny plastic baby is the common prize. At a party, the King Cake is sliced and served. Each person looks to see if their piece contains the "baby." If so, then that person is named "King" for a day and bound by custom to host the next party and provide the King Cake.
