    I don’t see yeast in the list of ingredients. How much do you use?

    The ingredient list omits the yeast. One packet?

    Sweet baby Jesus. I am from New Orleans and still live 10 minutes outside of it so essentially I live in New Orleans, but Jefferson Parish. It would be an abomination to put pumpkin pie spice and sour cream in a King Cake. It is not a king cake with anything pumpkin in it. But I did love reading your blog! Down here we let someone with a bakery bake them-there are different versions, but essentially the same-and NEVER any pumpkin pie spice. There is even a King Cake Festival judging the best bakery’s king cake. Happy Mardi Gras-we eat King cake all year long. They make them after Mardi Gras in the shape of a fleur de lis and put black and gold sprinkles-for the New Orleans Saints who are not listed on the bracket.

      Hahahahaahahaha Okay. Well, mine is a VERSION of King Cake, mostly it’s Three Kings Cake in honor of the Three Kings of Epiphany, so it’s only MOSTLY a King Cake. There’s no pumpkin in Pumpkin Pie Spice, it’s cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice. I’m glad you enjoyed reading my blog. I enjoyed reading your comments! Go Saints!

    P.S.-the choking hazard has been enlarged this year or sometimes put under the cake for someone to place in the cake knowing where it is. Or when my children were little I made sure that if they got the baby I got it 1st and let them think they had it all along.

      Right, that’s what I read about the bakeries selling the cakes with the toy packaged on the outside so that the game is played with intention thereby cutting the possibility of accidental choking to death during dessert. Thanks for the inside report from New Orleans! Happy Mardi Gras!
