King Cake…a Quick & Easy Substitute!

February 8

Preparing a Mardi Gras King Cake can be such a fun and tasty holiday tradition!  Cutting into that gooey cinnamon cake to see who finds the baby is a tradition that my family has really enjoyed over the years…but making this traditional dessert can be a bit of an undertaking!  Like any made-from-scratch bread, baking a King Cake requires kneading and rising…all worth the time invested but sometimes a good substitution needs to happen!  Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, and Chinese New Year all occur within days of one another, and I don’t know about you but one celebration a week is about all I can handle!  But when you have family traditions to uphold, a quick fix is in order!  So today I’m going to share a REALLY easy way to make a mini King Cake…still festive, tasty, AND you can literally make it in minutes!  I’ll also share a simple DIY decoration that even the kiddos could make!  Don’t let the fact that Mardi Gras is right around the corner scare you away from celebrating…

whip up a mini King Cake…or several!
