As tomorrow is Epiphany I thought I'd repost this about King Cakes which are sold in Louisiana at Epiphany. An oldie but a goodie...
...the most traditional, is a ring of twisted bread similar to that used in brioche topped with icing or sugar, usually colored purple, green, and gold (the traditional Mardi Gras colors) with food coloring with a trinket, traditionally a baby Jesus figurine.
I had heard about these and thought that perhaps I'd make one. Never got around to it but then I saw this photo and decided that I'd probably "pass" on this one.
I suppose that it's OK... That is where babies come from, I guess.
