I spotted my first king cake of the season at Whole Foods a week ago Sunday. The second was in the office on Thursday.
When I saw a coworker with a piece, I told him, "I'd rather be punched in the face than eat king cake."*
"Me too," he said.
I find the cream cheese unappetizing and the colored gelatinous icing really off-putting. I've tried some home-made ones, and while better, they weren't that much better.
So what am I missing here?
*This is completely untrue, btw. I'd easily eat a king cake in lieu of getting punched. I just wouldn't like it.
