Well, "soon" came sooner than I thought it would. I decided that I wasn't going to cook dinner last night but that instead we would go out to eat. You know, no having to clean the kitchen and all. We came back home afterwards and settled down to watch a little television when Robby said, "Hey...When are we going to make that King Cake?" I looked at the clock; it was 8 O'clock. I knew we were about to make a pretty big mess but hey... what the heck! We proceeded to make our King Cake.
I had already gotten most of the ingredients, with the exception of the purple, green and yellow sugar. Robby said that wasn't a problem since he could just use food coloring. It was a "go" on the purple and green but sadly no yellow. He wanted to use orange but I said, "No Way; we will just use the purple and green." Anyway, we made the cake and I'm going to share the recipe with you because it was pretty delicious!
3 Cans of Cinnamon Rolls
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 T. flour
1 tsp. vanilla extract
a few drops of milk
The first thing you need to do is take your cinnamon roll dough out of the refrigerator and let it warm up a little. This will make it easier to roll out.
I was so anxious to taste this cake to see if it resembled the flavor of a bought King Cake at all and I was pleasantly surprised...It was YUMMY! Now, If you love King Cake like I do, go and try this recipe. I assure you, you won't be disappointed. And if you have never tried a King Cake...well, this is a MUST for you! OH...but BEWARE! These things are addictive; every time you pass by one, you have to sneak a pinch.
