the dough for this is flawless and easy. I didn't change anything except the nuts and the technique of shaping it. (I've never seen nuts in king cake unless it was praline filling.)
for the shaping, I rolled it out, cut two long strips, and spread the cinnamon paste on one strip, and put cream cheese frosting on the other. rolled each into a tube and pressed them closed, then twisted them together like a braid and joined the ends. I also made my own colored sugar instead of buying it. just add a couple drops of food coloring to white sugar and shake up in a small container. easy! my boyfriend doesn't really like king cake and he was in the kitchen making sex noises over this. hands-down this is the most decadent and delicious king cake I've ever had. Will make again!!
