Hello everyone and Happy Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday if you prefer:)
Since Lent is beginning this week with Ash Wednesday marking its beginning, people love to celebrate or have one last day of feasting before abstaining from sweets.
(It’s also a perfect reason to have a celebration and bake.). While Mardi Gras has no official status in the Catholic Church, it is a custom in many Catholic countries to mark the day with parties and feasting, in particular eating.
Last year we attended our friends Mardi Gras party and brought our homemade Mardi Gras cupcakes.
