King Cake

Monday, March 04, 2019
 I made my first King Cake tonight (two actually, because that's how many the recipe made, though they are probably equal to one large grocery store cake).  I used this recipe from all recipe.  The only adjustments I made was that I doubled the icing recipe to cover both cakes, and I skipped the raisins and did a little over a cup of chopped pecans instead.
 It's freezing, so my rise wasn't quite what I wanted, but check out that filling peeking out!
 For the sake of a photo, I cut one in two so I could see the inside.  I may or may not have already had a slice.
The rest is traveling with work with me tomorrow to pass out.  No beads.  No babies.  Maybe next year!
