Our Attempt at Making a King Cake for Fat Tuesday
We tried to make our own King Cake for Fat Tuesday! We found a recipe on Pinterest that was for a quick and easy version of the Cake. It took a total of about 35 minutes to make and bake it. It may not be the best looking King Cake out there, but it was fun to make! Happy Fat Tuesday!
