Description

King cake is popular around mardi gras, where it makes for a delicious and festive celebration. A lightly sweetened yeast dough is studded with dried and candied fruits which adds a bit more sweetness and a touch of tartness. The dough is braided then shaped into a ring, an egg wash is applied before baking which gives it a light golden color and a shine for a beautiful finish.
