Homemade King Cake!

I made a king cake. FOR REAL! In 29 years of Mardi Gras - I have never seen a homemade king cake. Ever.

Here is the recipe I used from

I have also never seen raisins in a king cake, but it had good reviews so I was willing to give it a try.

Hey look! Pictures. Since photos = more fun.

Roll the dough

Spread the filling

Roll it up!

Put it on the pan

Make the frosting

Frost it

Make a ginormous mess!

Admire it

This was seriously delicious. It had a very authentic flavor. The recipe I used didn't color the frosting, but I would be sad if it wasn't purple, green, and gold. I just divided the frosting into 3 parts, then added 2 drops of food coloring to each bowl (1 blue and 1 red to make the purple). I actually preferred it over the one we ordered from Randazzo's. I will make it again for sure. Actually, I wish I had more now.
