When I saw this recipe in Family Fun for King Cake I could not resist trying it. The ones at the grocery are over $8 and how much could yeast and flour cost!! Also my husband sent me a link for a cake that was sent to his office by the parents of one of his co-workers from New Orleans and it was over $30 a cake.
I found the little babies at the craft store near the Baby/wedding shower supplies.
Well I set out one weekend afternoon, you will need a good chunk of time to do this.
Made my dough using my dough hook and Kitchen Aide Machine.
After rising the appropriate time, rolled the mixture inside.
Here is the inside. It was pretty tough, not pastry like.
Kids still enjoyed it. Best when heated in microwave a few seconds.
