ISO a King Cake recipe that's TNT

This request is a bit of a cross over because a King Cake is yeast-based and could be listed under "breads." Whatever. I chose to list it under "cakes."

Having said that and since Mardi Gras is February 5th, I want to make a King Cake. Never made one and would appreciate a recipe from those of you who have a good one.

Thanks.

Oooh, me too. I usually buy one this time of year from a local french bakery. It's a fun way to celebrate Mardi Gras even if I can't be in New Orleans. Are you going to bake in the little baby, too, Katie?

Of course. I ordered them last week. They should be here any day.

I just love "themes!" I'll use any excuse to try a recipe or cook/bake something......so many recipes, so little time.

You know what, we've been together 24/7 for 14 years - since we moved to Kentucky - and we've been havin' a ball. Trust me. There's no profit in growing up. Just don't tell your children...yet.

We've been together over 30 years total.

You know Katie, I think 30 years with your spouse is an amazing accomplishment. But 14 years with anyone 24/7??? I think that deserves a Congressional Medal of Honor (or a Purple Heart, depending upon the spouse). I love that you and Buck are still so happy together and I hope ya'll never grow up!

Thanks, Maverick. Looks like the recipe is worth a try.

Yeah, Buck and I have had quite a ride in over 30 years, especially with 5 children.
