Yesterday after dinner I got the bright idea to try making a King Cake, what with today being Fat Tuesday and all. I'd never eaten one before but have decorated probably 100s of the things back in my bakery days. It seemed like something to do with the evening and some rattling around in the cupboards revealed we actually had all the ingredients. I used this recipe but cut it half since we didn't need two cakes. We didn't have any tiny plastic babies or colored sanding sugar so I made the best of it.
I'm very happy with how it turned out. This is after we all had it for breakfast, there was an ice storm last night so Mr. H. had a snow day on account of the roads and cold (the low tonight is 2 degrees).
I've plated some up to take to my dad tomorrow as well as my inlaws if the roads are better.
