King Cake in a Bread Machine

Submitted by: SUZZANNA 
Make your Mardi Gras king cake using your bread machine to mix and knead the dough. Fill the dough with a buttery cinnamon-pecan filling, bake, and decorate with a frosting glaze and the time-honored purple, green, and yellow colored sugar. It's traditional to stick a little plastic baby or a bean into the cake before baking. The lucky one whose slice has the prize gets to make the king cake next year.
