mardi-gras-king-cake-iced

I’ve posted my favorite King Cake Recipe before – but I actually remembered to take pictures when I made it again for Mardi Gras this week ;)  This King Cake recipe is different than the traditional version in that you don’t make a yeasty bread from scratch – but instead use of a can of crescent rolls for the crust.
