Mardi Gras is the ultimate celebration.
A day of final sins (so to speak) before the fasting for lent.
Many people choose to participate in lent, others do it for religious reasons, and others simply love Mardi Gras celebrations (can you blame them?).
What ever you decide to do, it needs to be done with cake. Especially if that cake has 2 flavors!
The required ingredients for this post were either bananas, bourbon, or andouille sausage. I chose to go with bananas.
They are one of my favorite fruits, and New Orleans is the home of bananas foster!
But, this cake is great because you can choose any 2 flavors you like. Get creative!
The results of a checkerboard cake are gorgeous and so much simpler than you may think. All you need is this checkerboard cake pan set and you are on your way!
Have you ever been to Mardi Gras?
