I've had that once or twice. Not sure why, but I'm just not a big fan.

Tradition holds that the person who gets the baby buys the next King Cake. My favorite is one that has raspberry and cream cheese filling. The regular King Cakes are generally a little too dry for me. Back to tradition, the question that is always asked here before someone takes a piece is "Who got the baby?". If the response is "no one", they hold off. I've gotten the baby a few times (It's really no biggie. They're not that expensive here.) but the last time I got one, I cut up the remainder of the King Cake into 6 equal pieces about the size of the one in your image. I put a baby in ALL of them. No one got one but I knew all 6 people who got a piece. :)
