Mardi Gras! Ephiphany! 12th Night! Just a random Tuesday! Are all great reasons to bake this Three Kings Cake Recipe easy enough for beginning bakers to tackle! Honestly… if the thought of fussing with yeast dough makes you cry… dry your tears, and make this cake. Because it uses everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving friend… Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough (yup, that stuff in a can)… it comes together in a snap, and looks (almost) like a professional made it!
Fill the cake with the smooth and to make Cream Cheese filling.. and you will have people battling for seconds! Whether or not you stick in the raisins (maybe even soaked in rum?) and nuts is up to you. Feel free to substitute Dried Cranberries or even Chocolate Chips. Often a special plastic “baby” will be baked into the cake, and the person who finds it is supposed to get luck for the year (and maybe a trip to the dentist).
Top the cake with a simple white icing… then give it some Mardi Gras flair with colorful icing! Remember, the traditional colors are Purple for Justice, Green for Faith, and Yellow for Power.
