Fat Tuesday

I was going to share the king cake I made, but it was a disaster! It was going to be an awesome braided sweet bread filled with cinnamon sugar, but it exploded in the oven and is a tough, strangely shaped bread on a bed of cinnamon hard candy. Even though my last king cake turned out alright next time I'll follow a recipe instead of winging it.

Here are several king cake recipes that will turn out better than the mess I made:
Cinnamon Cream Cheese King Cake from David at Spiced
Mardis Gras King Cake from Gina von Esmarch at Bowl Licker
King Cake for Mardi Gras from Laura at Tide and Thyme
Mardi Gras King Cake from Rosa at Rosa's Yummy Yums
King Cake from Amanda at What We're Eating
Mardi Gras King Cake from Barbara at Barbara Bakes
