Break tradition this year by making and serving a festive green, gold and purple King Cake Roll for Mardi Gras. This fun dessert is filled with cream cheese fluff and each slice reveals colorful stripes of cake.
Have you ever been to a Mardi Gras celebration?
The parades, the parties, and the beads. It all makes for a very festive celebration. So, when I set out to create a new version of a King Cake, I knew it had to be just as colorful and exciting.
I kept the purple, gold and green colors but used them to create a striped cake rolls which I filled with fluffy cream cheese filling.
You can still have fun hiding a plastic baby or bean inside like they do with traditional King Cakes. When you cut the cake, the person who finds the hidden surprise will be blessed with good fortune all year. Everyone else will get a slice with colorful stripes, which is almost as exciting.
