Happy Mardi Gras!
Although I am a non-observer, I do partake in devouring some calorie-heavy packzi's every year on Mardi Gras (literally Fat Tuesday). I really want to try my hand at making some homemade packzi's, but I'm not sure I'm at that point in my baking career :)
If you don't live in an area where packzi's are available... you are missing out!
But there are still some other delicious goodies that you can fatten up on for Mardi Gras.
Cookies, King Cake, and buttercream frosted cupcakes all decorated in purple, green, and gold? Sounds like a pretty good time to me.
