Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Excellent king cake! After I moved away from Louisiana, I found that no grocery stores carried king cakes during mardi gras or if they did.. they weren't too appetizing.. This cake is just like what I would get at home. The dough is spot in flavor. The filling is also delicious, although I omitted the raisins and pecans because I've never had that in king cake. I also used the cream cheese filling another user posted, which turned out great. The first time I made this, the frosting tasted a little off, but the second time I used 2 c. powdered sugar, 1 T butter, 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 T milk, and it came out great. The filling and frosting needed a little modification, but the dough is excellent, and that's the most important part! P.S. if you like fruit filled king cakes, canned pie filling works great. Strawberry is my fave, but blueberry is pretty good too.
