My Fat Tuesday King Cake
Tuesday, February 16, 2010
Well, I made a King Cake today. It is actually just a sweet bread like you would use as a basis for sweet rolls. It is made in a ring shape and I used an egg white glaze to color it in thirds, purple, green and gold. Those colors represent justice, faith and power, respectively. It turned out really cool looking. You are supposed to bake a tiny doll or "king" into it. Whoever gets the piece with the king will have good luck i guess. I didn't have a "king" so I put a little plastic ring in it. Sam got it right away in his first piece, I guess that's good since it was his idea and he asked me to make it ;0) I made a yummy honey butter to put on it. I only wish I would have taken a pic of it before we all scarfed it down!!
