Here is to First..My King Cake, Saints, and a Video

This has been a weekend of first around here. I am so excited to write this post on my first King Cake and my first video. The game has just ended and the SAINTS are going to the Super Bowl another fantastic first.

Making a King Cake took more work than I thought. If you can, it would be easier to purchase one at a nearby bakery. If you would like the recipe just let me know in the comments and I will get it to you. I used two recipes to make up my own so I don't have it written down yet. This will just highlight of the crazy moments I had with
Susie and include a few steps in the process.


Mix the sour cream, sugar,salt and butter. Let cool
Eggs, yeast, and bread flour.
Mix together...
The dough rising, guess I got the yeast part right. The best place I found was the dryer... I also threw a load of clothes in the wash while I was in there.


Rolled it out, added the filling ....funny 42 second video of that! I did not realize she was really making a video so I have to show it cause if not sista will on her blog, and she has way too many critics than me. I hope it makes you laugh as much as it made us.

video



As you can tell in the video, I will never get a job with Food Net Work or after licking the container of filling I would not be allowed to work anywhere there is food!
I also know I have bread flour all over my breast. That's cuz I am short and work very close to the counter.

PLEASE NOTE I DID NOT MAKE THE FILLING and WHAT WAS LEFT WAS THROWN AWAY AFTER SUSIE LICKED IT TOO !!!

After that video if you can stomach anymore of this, you need to roll your cake jelly style and form a ring.

It has to rise again....



I finally got Susie in front of the camera. I wanted ya'll to know she really was here. The two handles of the refrigerator look like my little horns.
You will bake it for about 20 min. the add a glaze and colored sugar.


Look at that sweet baby...literally it is laying in a ton of colored sugar.
My kids thought the video was better than the King Cake. They really thought it was hilarious when they made my voice sound like the girl in the Chipmunks... Visit http://www.susieharrisblog.com/ to see what we did while the cake was rising. I made her some really cute towels for her bath.

I thought the baby was hidden inside the cake. Stupid me, I'm sure it would melt. In the Greek bread the quarter is baked inside.

You and Sis could be twins. You two look a lot alike.

It looks incredible! I like that you skirted a choking incident by putting the baby on the cake instead of in it. :) Well done!

Wendy said...

Okay, serendipity! I'm making my first King Cake this weekend! I just popped over here from Susie's blog and tada...you're making King Cake! The video wouldn't work for me...but totally enjoyed the story!
I've worked w/yeast breads before, so I'm anticipating a workout. No idea what filling I'm going to use though. Cream cheese sounds delicious! Oh...and the handtowels are awesome! xoxo-Amber

Hi Anonymous....if thats even your real name. Shame on you! Not that you should be worried but my sister does have a real job and works very hard at it. She also volunteers every chance she gets. So go bully someone else please. Thank you...
