Short And Sweet. Big Easy King Cake.

Big Easy King Cake


Evidently that’s a T-Shirt and the back reads “Let Me Put A Baby In Ya”.

I’m gonna keep it PG and not think too much into that.

Mardi Gras is next Tuesday and I always love to make a King Cake to celebrate.

This version couldn’t be easier in that it is made from refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Next time, I would let the cake cool longer before applying the glaze since it melted into a pool in the middle. The cake was still yummy. I have two other King Cake recipes posted that you can also check out here and here.)

And, if you want to be authentic, put a baby in ya cake. You can buy some creepy looking ones here.

Big Easy King Cake

Here is a short song from a King. Humorous, too.

“Your songs are good
Your riffs are strong
But they’re only
Two minutes long

Your album’s great
But here’s the facts
It’s half an hour
With nineteen tracks”

This song is pretty freakin’ sweet.

“If you want to see
Where you stand with me
It’s easy
Just smile
That’s all”

Check out Lich King on Bandcamp, where you can get the music.
