Could This Idea Solve The Baby In The King Cake Problem?
When I was a kid, one of my favorite things about Mardi Gras was finding the baby in King Cake. I would zero in on it like a chicken hawk huntin' for a chicken. These days, we don't get the little plastic baby hidden inside the cake, and I understand why completely...not really but kind of. No one wants to choke, and no one wants to get sued. But, it got me thinking, what if the King Cake baby was made like Gummy Bear?
If the baby was made like a soft Gummy Bear, we wouldn't have to worry about possibly chipping a tooth either. We would just bite through the baby harmlessly as we enjoy our Mardi Gras manna. It would also be another thing we could eat, and that's always a good thing.
The only drawback I can think of is that if the baby was made like a Gummy Bear, we would possibly bite through it and eat it without knowing it.
I fail to think that I'm the first person to think of this. The idea I'm sure has been explored by every bakery in Louisiana, right?
Why wouldn't an idea like this work? The fact that it's not being done this way leads me to believe there's probably a problem with my revolutionary idea. However, if it would actually work, it would bring the magic of King Cake Back back!
