Adventures in Baking

So, the college football national championship was LAST week, and yes, we've been doing stuff THIS week, but none of it got photographed. This lovely attempt at a king cake did win a moment of the spotlight though...even though it looks more like those little pillows they give hemorroid patients than an actual king cake. You're welcome for that mental image. =)
This was attempt 3...the first two didn't even rise, or rise evenly. So...I'll try again around the time of Mardi Gras and maybe we'll get something more cake-like and less medical-equipment like. =) ''
Haha, you're welcome again.

So do you actually bake in a plastic baby when you make these? I didn't know how that worked if you made them homemade.

I didn't know anything about king cake until college. One of my roommates was from right outside NO, and her mom would always ship us one. YUM.

Sorry I read the hemmorroids first and then looked at the cake and then finished reading the sentence about a pillow. I have to go lie down now.

Oh mudikin...I still owe you that king cake recipe. Before Mardi Gras it WILL be in your box!

And Paul's new nickname in our house is now "the electric cowboy" bwah ha ha ha ha!
