a cake for kings

remember when i told you i was baking a little surprise for the super bowl? well here it is!


i made my very first king cake from scratch...it was absolutely delicious, if i do say so myself. i used this recipe with a little tweaking and i have to say that i was surprised at myself.  until now i hadn't made any kinds of bread from scratch - what with all the rising and waiting and punchind and whatnot. i have to say that it was quite therapeutic! anyway here are a few photos of the creation:

 
  
  

i would definitely use this recipe again to just make the bread. 

yum! happy mardi gras!
