Recipe Round-Up: King Cakes for Mardi Gras
from The Sweetest Vegan's Vlogazine
Every year I completely miss Mardi Gras and I think, I'll just remember to make a King Cake next year, because I've been dying to try one. And this year, I have continued this sad little tradition and pretty much let Mardi Gras pass me by unawares. It was never something my family celebrated when growing up and I suppose that explains why it is not on my internal calendar. Right about now, and even when in February, we pretty much focus only on the upcoming St. Patrick's Day. I might make one of these cakes this month, but it certainly won't be timely.
However, I will share some of the King Cake recipes around the blogsphere with you. Maybe you've still got a chance...
