CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- The Tri-County Mall is celebrating Mardi Gars with the construction of the largest king cake in the Tri-State on Sunday.

On February 27, members from the greater Cincinnati Retail Baker's Association will be at the Tri-County Mall food court building "Ohio and Tri-State's Largest King Cake" at noon. Fifteen Retail Bakers from the area will bring together sections of the coffee cake and it will be iced and decorated in from of Dillards and Willis Music Company.

The cake will be 8 feet by 8 feet and will be decorated in the official Mardi gras colors, green for faith, gold for power, and purple for justice. At 1:30pm, the cake will be cut and served. One person who finds a bubble gum coin in their slice of cake will win a Mardi gras prize.

 

The event is part of an awareness campaign that's in its 62nd year to educate the public about the origin and history of the King Cake and to hold a Mardi Gras party.
