THE not Elvis

Here it is,
 the KING at our house this time of year...
King Cake that is.

Last year I was crazy enough to try making one from scratch.

I mixed... and mixed..

Max was waiting for me to drop anything that he could eat...

While the King was rising...I monogrammed some hand towels for Susie . 

A little filling..cinnamon + Bavarian cream = YUM

Roll it up..baked..and decorated..

Can I tell you, after cleaning up the messy kitchen,
 I vowed this year to just stop by the
bakery and pick one up!

Was wondering what kind of embroidery machine do you have. I have been searching for the right one.

Okay, I am ashamed to admit this but I've never tasted King cake! It just doesn't LOOK good to me. I know, there must be something terribly wrong with me!
