Sara, Ms. Adventures in Italy

Ah, I wish you had posted this before Mardi Gras - my mom asked me for a recipe to pass her and I would have definitely sent this one! :)

Oh dear, Sara! Yeah, we procrastinated a bit on the King Cake this year. If she wants to make one next year, point her our way!


my, that's festive. at first glance i thought it was a sort of funnel cake, but clearly this was a way more complex baking escapade. looks like fun on a plate!

Boots in the Oven

Definitely festive! Sort of a big, happy mess, which takes eleventeen steps. It was a lot of fun to eat!


That's one mother of cake. I think I gained a pound just reading about the butter, sugar, nuts and cream cheese!

Ah yes... you've touched on another reason that baking is pretty rare around here. But the cake keeps getting better and better!


I've been to NO twice in my life... 1969 when I left the army and 2002 when I picked up my 1st MINI Cooper... never have had the pleasure to go during Mardi Gras... Maybe someday... :-(

King Cake looks yummie!

Boots in the Oven

Thanks, RB! It was a good one.

And definitely make it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras! I have to go back that time of year.
