King Cake Question

Posted By on Mon, Feb 1, 2010 at 1:35 PM


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.
