Holidays fuel Life with Magic.
Hello Fat Tuesday! One Last Hooray Before Lent.
For Mardi Gras, King Cake is King.
Have You Met the King Cake?
I Love The Whole Idea of a King Cake…A Sweet Treat with a Tiny Baby Hidden Inside. The Guest Who Gets the Baby has Good Luck All Year and Must Host the Celebration Next Year.
King Cake – All Spruced Up with Purple, Gold and Green Sprinkles. And Sweet, Sweet, Sweet!
Finding King Cakes Here is Tough. And Shipping Costs for On-Line Cakes is Crazy.
Ahh…this Year I’m Making My Own. I Know, I’m Not a Baker but this Should Be Easy…
I found Mam Papaul’s King Cake Mix.
For Problems – Call 1-800-EAT-KJUN. Love It!
It Was Super Easy. Care to Try?
To Make the Dough: Mix. Hot Water. Egg. Butter. Yeast.
We Mixed the Dough in the (included) Zip-lock Bag.
Next We Set the Bag in a Warm Place for the Dough to Rise.
The Dough Needs Two Risings.
Spread the Dough into a rectangle. Sprinkle the Dough with Brown Sugar Praline Mix.
Then Roll Up the Dough into a Tube and Shape into an Oval.
Bake at 375 for 20 Minutes until Brown.
Make the Glaze. Spread over the Top. Sprinkle, Sprinkle, Sprinkle.
Keep Your Eye on the Baby.
Set the King Cake on a Platter.
Shhh…Slip the Baby Under the Cake Just Before Serving.
I figured if One Baby Brings Good Luck…Why Not Have a Whole Nursery!
Hidden Under the Cake.
An Avant-garde Version of the King Cake…A Baby for Everyone!
King Cake and Babies and Magic!
Happy Fat Tuesday!
