It’s Fat Tuesday! Let’s eat king cake! »
I’ve seen Kittee Berns post multiple photos of her delicious-looking king cakes, so I knew it was time for me to get in my kitchen and try making one myself. She has recipes for both gluten-full and gluten-free versions, so I opted to make the XGXFX Peanut Butter Cup King Cake (because there’s nothing better than the magical combination of peanut butter and chocolate [Ed. note: I think that’s widely acknowledged as a fact now]). She even has a King Cake Primer for us folks who have no clue where this delectable treat originated from, along with very clear instructions on how to assemble and decorate one. So, what are you waiting for? Get to baking (and eating)! And happy Mardi Gras!
First attempt at baking a King Cake (gluten-free, nonetheless) was a (somewhat messy) success! And delicious!
To get you in the Fat Tuesday spirit, how about a little Beignet from New Orleans? She’s not really a pastry, silly, she’s a kitty! A Katrina rescue (still?) looking for a home in New York. Have you ever seen such pretty eyes? It looks like she’s wearing false eyelashes! She is super pretty with a reportedly quiet demeanor—such a lady! Maybe you have room in your home to party with Beignet this Fat Tuesday?
