HAPPY MARDI GRAS EVERYBODY! I just thought today was a good day to make King Cakes to celebrate Mardi Gras. I for one have never been to Mardi Gras but would like to someday. HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
MARDI GRAS KING CAKE
I used the batter to make 2 cakes. Also, I used half the filling for cake #1.
KING CAKE FILLING 1
KING CAKE FILLING 2
I used the following recipe plus 1/2 cup more powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon of butter. Make sure you cook this cake a bit longer because the cream cheese kind of makes it soggy.
I used this recipe to decorate the cake purple, green, and yellow topping (the traditional Carnival colors).
