Mardi Gras usually means parades, parties and king cakes, and while the parades and partying are on hold this year, eating king cake is still a go. The colorful rings of sweet dough and crunchy sugar topping are a traditional part of the seasonal celebration from early January until Fat Tuesday, and this year is no exception.

What has changed a bit is the gatherings where king cake takes center stage. Smaller get-togethers call for smaller king cakes, making several individual-sized desserts based on the flavor, shape and colors of the traditional sweet circle more appropriate than ever this year.
