King Cake Baby Royal Seedlings!
It's officially Mardi Gras Season!! And that means King Cakes! A king cake is like a cinnamon roll in the shape of a giant flat donut. And the BEST part of a king cake is not even the cake!! It's what's hidden inside—a small plastic or porcelain baby.
Whoever gets the baby in their slice of king cake is said to have extra luck all year long. They also get to host and/or bring king cake for the next Mardi Gras party.
Each King Cake Baby Starry is made of glazed clay and is the size of a traditional king cake baby (about 2cm tall). They are nontoxic, but we recommend keeping them as keepsakes. Hiding porcelain babies in cakes has led to many cracked teeth!! In the olden days maybe this didn't matter so much but these days we're all about oral health! If you must have your seedling covered in cinnamon, you can hide the baby under the cake and everyone can check under their own piece to see if they got the King Cake Baby!
If you've ever been to New Orleans and are missing The Big Easy, King Cake Baby Starry is a great reminder of the joy of NOLA. And if you haven't been yet, Baby Starry will bring a bit of authentic NOLA charm to you! Each baby is handmade. Please feel free to request special colors/designs as a Note to Seller at checkout. We will do our best to accommodate! Hamlet will also be overjoyed to pick one for you based on your ESP vibes that come blasting through the computer when you place your order.
