King Cakes date back to the middle ages and are celebrated in many cultures in different forms around the world. The famous Mardi Gras King originated in France where it's known as the "gateaux de roix". The King cake celebrates gift giving by reference to the three wise men that brought gifts to the baby Jesus. The cake hides a little charm, that symbolizes the gift. This charm was originally a bean or a nut and in some cultures a coin. When the French influence spread in Louisiana, the King cake was adopted as the official Mardi Gras confection.
It's personality has been made more festive over the years with the addition of the three Mardi Gras colors: Purple to stand for Justice, Green to stand for Faith, and Gold to stand for power.
