No Bake King Cake

Have you ever wanted to make a Mardi Gras king cake but were turned off by the complicated yeast bread recipes?  Here’s a quickie recipe with beautiful results – and no cooking necessary.

I attended a presentation today given by Cindy Pagragan of Cindy’s Sweet Sensations.  She showed us slides of her exquisite novelty and wedding cakes – have you ever seen one in the shape of a castle?  She taught us some fascinating things about cake icings, such as the trade-offs of transfat vs. smoothness and stability.  But what I really want to share with you is her creative king cake recipe.  This is the secret ingredient:

No Bake King Cake

King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (24 oz.)
2 oz. butter, melted
Cinnamon sugar
Colored sugar
Vanilla glaze

Arrange the rolls in an oval shape on the serving plate.  Brush the rolls with melted butter.  Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  Glaze.  (It needs to be thick but able to spread on its own.  Adjust recipe below as needed.)  Decorate with colored sugar.

Cinnamon Sugar

¾ cup dark brown sugar
½ tsp. cinnamon

Vanilla Glaze

16 oz. powdered sugar (1 box)
1 to 2 ounces milk
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

Whisk together until smooth.

Colored Sugar

Granulated sugar
Coloring agents (concentrated paste, soft gel paste, or food color)

Place sugar in a stainless steel or glass bowl and mix with the agent so that the sugar crystals are saturated.  Add color in small amounts – a little goes a long way.

    Also I believe that mesothelioma is a extraordinary form of many forms of cancer that is usually found in these previously subjected to asbestos. Cancerous cellular material form inside mesothelium, which is a safety lining which covers most of the body’s bodily organs. These cells usually form inside the lining of the lungs, mid-section, or the sac which encircles the heart. Thanks for discussing your ideas.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
