We had only a small memento of Mardi Gras this year - a King Cake alone. I was tied up with appointments, and Tyler and Paul went to Boy Scouts. So no party. But I had the presence of mind several weeks ago to order a gluten-free King Cake from Sweet Ali's in Glenview. It was beautifully made, and included the requisite plastic baby (added after baking, of course). It was really delicious! I was worried about that, and even considered getting a regular cake in addition, but the whole family liked it. Sweet Ali's is an excellent bakery. We are fortunate to have them so close.
