A Week of Mardi Gras

*Info on this photo below, but first...
I became a little bit obsessed with everything Mardi Gras after I visited New Orleans in October, granted, I've always loved New Orleans.  I ended up with a week's worth of post (+2) to throw up before I made myself quit heading down the cajun road....for now.  So...here goes. 
The posts and links to the how tos are the following...
King's Cupcakes

Mini Beignets

Fried Pickles

Jambalaya

Mask Cookies

Hush Puppies

Weight Watchers Paella

Crepes

Lent Pretzels

As a side note, on the work trip to New Orleans, I became obsessed with photographing all the wrought iron all over the city during the afternoons we had in the city (I've been snapping letters I 'see' in small objects for awhile to build an alphabet)....and above is my best version of a wrought iron New Orleans collage I pulled together with the photos, which came together thanks to the fact that all the pals with me started finding letters in the iron for me. I was there for work, so there wasn't a ton of time, but it's my starting point, I've always wanted to try this out.

Mardi Gras reminds me of when I was little and living in Louisiana. I always try to make a King Cake, but I love your idea to make King Cake cupcakes, and a whole week of Mardi Gras recipes! I adore beignets! May have to try those at home soon too!
