Carnival King Cake
Carnival King Cake is traditionally prepared in New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras and the Carnival season. This king cake recipe is simple and delicious. Rolled up with a cinnamon filling, this Mardi Gras cake is decorated with colored sugar that reflects the traditional colors of the celebration. For the best results, it is recommended that this cake be consumed on the day it is made, though it can also be prepared ahead of time and then reheated. Even if it's past Mardi Gras, you could still make this cake and decorate it with any colors you'd like.
