having lived in louisiana for 13 years, i was excited to finally make my own since i live in cincy and haven't found any i really like here. at first, i wasn't sure if i did a good job, but the more i ate it, the more delicious i realized it was. i made a few mistakes as a rookie - i took the advice of folding it together, then twisting it instead of jelly-rolling it and i didn't do it tight enough. so some parts were too fat and where it came together, too skinny. but otherwise, it looked authntic. i also split the sugar b/w white and brown and added some pecans as suggested. yummy. i will try the cream cheese filling next time. i also bought the icing but colored my own sugar. it was so easy, i just couldn't justify the expense of buying the colors premade. now if i can just figure out how to fill it with bavarian cream - my favorite king cake filling ever.
