Fat Tuesday

My husband grew up very close to New Orleans, which means that he grew up with Mardi Gras and all the traditions that come with it.  Until I met him, I had no idea what a king cake was, but since then I've eaten one (or two) each year.  So, for Fat Tuesday I thought I'd surprise him and make a King Cake.  (Ok, I made two)  The first was a Strawberry Cream Cheese one and the second, I tried to do a Mississippi Mud take.  It had chocolate custard, marshmallows, and toasted pecans.  It was pretty delish.

Next time I'll braid the bread dough to make it look like the ones in the bakeries.
