Vegan Mardi Gras King Cake

By February 27, 2014

Vegan King CakeIf you've never celebrated Mardi Gras before, this Vegan King Cake is a good reason to start! My favorite of the holiday's fare, it will definitely be making an appearance at my annual Fat Tuesday celebration next week.

Vegan King CakeThis Vegan King Cake Recipe is a really impressive dessert, but not as difficult to prepare as you might think. Similar to cinnamon rolls, babkas, and other yeast-based cakes, it's prepared with a sweet yeast dough, rolled with a brown-sugar pecan filling and baked until golden brown, and then, like other yeast-based cakes, it's finished with a simple powdered sugar glaze and decorations. While you can buy colored sprinkles (without any dairy-based preservatives), I prefer to make my own with unrefined cane sugar and colored dyes--purple, yellow and green for Mardi Gras. If you don't have a porcelain baby, any heatproof trinket will do; be creative!
