Ok, lets just start off with me saying I know Mardi Gras is over. However, I have a niece who just loves these king cakes! My brother in law came down to visit yesterday so I decided to try my luck with this recipe. Now normally I am not the best at following directions, but for this recipe I followed to the letter and the result was great! Everyone loved the cake and went on and on about how much better it was than the store bought ones. This really is not a hard recipe, just a lot of steps. I wish I had taken more pictures for you guys but I was trying to fix my laptop on the phone with my brother in Albany, NY and fielding multiple phone calls from work! So while you only get one picture of the finished product, I now have a working laptop and can post again!! YAY! I looked over many recipes on Pinterest while trying to decide how to make this and here is the one I chose. The directions are very detailed and easy to follow. If you decide to try it, please let me know what you think!
