Local bakeries draw large crowds with Fat Tuesday treats

Posted:

It's a day meant for over eating of unhealthy foods and Rapid City bakery's are baking up Mardi Gras fare.
 
Jeremy Schubert with Jerry's Cakes & Doughnuts in Rapid City says they can barely keep up with the Fat Tuesday demand.

They make King Cakes and Paczki's special for the holiday.

Schubert says they sold out of King Cakes and half their stock of Paczki's within two hours, but it's a fun holiday for him and his staff.

A toy baby is baked into the King Cake, per tradition, and superstition awaits the lucky one who finds it.
 
"First one is it'll bring you good luck for a year. Second is you'll become pregnant that year, so if you're a dude watch out, Third one is you have to buy next year's King Cake, which I think is more realistic," says Schubert.
 
Mardi Gras is French for Fat Tuesday, referring to the last night of eating rich fatty foods before the ritual of fasting for the Lent season.
