Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
I'm pretty disappointed. I made a great King Cake last year and hoped that this was the recipe I used. Sadly, I don't think it was. The flavor of the dough and filling were just okay. I left out the raisins in the filling, because I just don't associate raisins and King Cake. Then, I added the sugar frosting following the recipe as is...blech! I think it ruined the whole thing. I should have added a little lemon juice or maybe a touch of vanilla extract to brighten it up. I'm hoping it will pass as okay at my Fat Tuesday celebration tomorrow, but in the end I may not even bring it. If I were to use this recipe again I might add another tablespoon or two of butter to the dough and an extra 1/2 tsp of salt. I would also add either lemon juice or vanilla extract to the frosting for more depth of flavor.
