Since we normally would have a Mardi Gras party the weekend before Fat Tuesday and Marc's birthday happened to fall on the particular weekend it would be, we decided to do a relatively low key Mardi Gras inspired birthday party this year. We did it all traditional- purple green and gold decor with lots of beads and Cajun food. The only thing we didn't do traditional was the cake, which would normally be a king cake (think cinnamon roll like cake with colored sprinkles). Marc wanted chocolate and strawberries though, so that's what I made.
It was fun. :-)
