10 Mardi Gras King Cake Inspired Recipes

Mardi Gras season is upon us and that means its time for King Cake! Before I moved to Texas, I had never heard of King Cake and had barely heard of Fat Tuesday. But now that I’m here – I look forward to having some King Cake each year. King Cake is traditionally a sweet yeast dough that is in the shape of a ring – filled with cinnamon and sugar (although there are many fruit fillings now) and topped with a sweet sugar glaze, decorated in traditional Mardi Gras colors; purple, yellow and green. Also, you may hear about a baby in a cake…. traditionally there is a small plastic baby figure baked placed inside the cake after baking (or under the cake). He who finds the cake, is suppose to have good luck for the year. A lot of retailers no longer put the baby in the cake but traditionally you will find a baby in there!

I have never made King Cake before, but this year I may try so I found some King Cake inspired recipes that look pretty easy! It’s all yummy – you should try it!
