Missing Mardi Gras? Craving a Mardi Gras King Cake? If you live in an area where you can’t go to the nearest bakery or grocery store and pick up a King Cake, you may want to try making one using the recipe below from epicurious.com. It takes a little time, but this is an easy recipe.
This recipe calls for dividing the dough into 3 portions, rolling them into rope-type pieces and braiding them. However, you may prefer to just divide the dough into two portions and add filling to the inside before you bake it. You can add Bavarian cream, strawberry, chocolate or other fillings which you can usually find in a cake-decorating shop; you can use jams, jellies and preserves; or you can make your own. As long as the cake is topped with icing and purple, green and gold sugar, you can be as creative as you wish and it will still qualify as a King Cake. Don’t forget to add the baby!
