I’m a few days late on this one. I didn’t have a big blow out party. We had a couple of friends over and ordered pizza. But I did try my hand at making a king cake in honor of the Saints!
I used this recipe from All Recipes, which originally ran in Southern Living. King cakes aren’t very cake like, more like cinnamon rolls, so there was yeast to be dissolved, dough to be kneaded and rolled out. It took all afternoon and made a big mess, but it was very fun trying out something new. The recipe I used actually made two cakes, which is a good thing because they’re delicious! We like it best warmed up a bit in the microwave.
The main reason I tuned into the Super Bowl this year was to see my baby brother on national television! He was part of the military group that marched out on the field and stood behind Carrie Underwood as she sang the National Anthem. Here’s a fuzzy screenshot from the youtube video. And also the video itself. So exciting!
