Inside-Out King Cake
Tradition says that whoever finds the plastic baby tucked inside the cake is "king" for the night, but also has to bring the next King Cake for the following year's celebration. If you've found yourself in charge of bringing the cake, impress your friends by making your own and giving it a twist that's more fun, but simple to do, by filling the inside with color (and coating the outside in delicious cream cheese icing and praline pecans). Now, don't be intimidated by the cake's impressive appearance, this recipe keeps the King Cake simple by using store-bought hot roll mix. You can buy candied pecans at your local grocery store, or you could make your own with just five ingredients.
