Today, we learned how to make a king cake! We learned about the symbolism of the colors – green for faith, yellow for power & purple for justice. I grew up thinking that the purple was for royalty. Anyway, it turned out great. C was excited to hide the baby & made sure to get that piece for himself.
C measured the flour, spread the filling & decorated with icing. We also made cinnamon rolls so he helped with those, too!
I modified my late father-in-law’s bread machine recipe for Cinnabons. He would have loved this cake (tube frosting and all). Boo Boo says he considered any food in packets or tubes “space man food” and, therefore, the coolest thing ever! The cake was a big hit with C!
