The classic cake is oval shaped, and coffee cake dough, sometimes with added cinnamon and sometimes not. I think it depends on the bakery. They ice them, they sugar them and they even fill them, that's what I am talking about. The best way to eat them is warm with Chicory coffee or Coffee' au lat'. Who makes the best King cake? well that is up to you the reader to discover, but just be sure to send me a piece. Here is a quick "I am way too busy" version.
1 can cinnamon roll dough (grands work nice) with icing
melted butter about 2 or 3 ozs
1 8oz pkg cream cheese(softened)
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sour cream
sanding sugar, purple, yellow, and green
1 beaten egg
1 plastic baby small
In a bowl combine the cream cheese,sugar,lemon juice, vanilla extract and sour cream and mix until smooth, and if able put in a pastry bag, or set aside.
Preach not to others what they should eat, but eat as becomes you, and be silent.~ Epictetus (55 AD-135 AD)
