What kind of king cake have you had so far? If none, what kind do you hope will be your first one this year?

I haven't had any yet, but if I have my way it will be cherry cream cheese or Zulu, either one works for me!

I'm a traditionalist when it comes to king cakes (although I must admit a weakness for Bavarian cream, whether doughnuts, eclairs, cream puffs, or king cakes).

Yesterday I baked one, details and photo to follow when I get to a real computer. Now I'm on the Kindle Fire HDX 7 tablet. I use Microsoft Paint to reduce the pixel size to fit Lake's limits. I have no clue how to do that using the tablet.

I have a special place in my hawt for Rouse's king cakes because the one on Veterans Highway was selling good ones post-K in early 2006 when king cakes were hawd to find.

Haydel's dough, rolled instead of braided, with added egg wash to hold the (store-bought, not fresh made) colored sugar, and an added very thin glaze that's not in the recipe. This cake was not too sweet, which I enjoyed a lot. I don't need a quarter inch thick icing, and the only filling I need is the half cup of cinnamon sugar in the recipe, rolled inside.

My new pan from U.S. Pan Co. seems to overcook the bottom before the top browns, as it did when I cooked Filipino style pan de sal last month. Could it be because I sprayed the pan instead of using parchment, or should I have just relied on the pan's high-tech non-stick coating?

A cream cheese king cake from Maurice's Bakery in Metairie, It was very good, but I think a bit on the expensive
side.....$30.00 for a medium size king cake.

What a town...

Just when you say... "I'm Gonna lose weigh"
Here comes another reason to to break ya diet.
I'm SOOOO weak :oops:

Since the resolutions began...
The aboy clan has had three birthday parties.
First for a son-in- law we had Handel king cake.
For my youngest daughter's birthday on the 10th
We had a Gambino's Doberge King Cake.
We will be repeating that party on the 20th for my lovely lady.

Two more celebrations in February...
Thank God... Lent will be early this year.

FYI:
Valentine's Day is Ash Wednesday

Congrats Chawlie, especially for taking the time and effort to make one yourself (I know not too many "sand box" stores sell king cakes). You did a fine job. :lol:

Neither are high profile. I really like the one from TOAST. Not "fancy" at all, but just really good taste in a traditional king cake. For fancy I like the chocolate one from BITTERSWEET CONFECTIONS.
