I chose a recipe from Bakerita…

King Cake with Cream Cheese Filling

In honor of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras, I decided to make a King Cake. It had been awhile since my last tasting of the New Orleans treat. I remember wanting to buy one at the grocery store last year, but it seemed a little silly to buy an entire cake for just the two…
