King Cake

WARNING!  Scrumptious delight ahead!  You might gain about 10 pounds feasting your eyes on this

I’m pretty sure I did

A king cake is very much like a cinnamon roll.  The dough is rolled out into a large rectangle, spread with a sugar & cinnamon mixture, then rolled up, jelly roll style.  The ends are brought together into a circle (or crown).

Before last month, I’d never even heard of a King Cake.  I stumbled on a recipe in my church bulletin.  It was lacking, so I did a bit of research online to answer the questions I had with the bulletin recipe.  This is my second attempt.  It is decidedly better than the first go.
