King cakes come and king cakes go. And, they're just about gone.
In celebration of this wonderful time of sugary goodness, Beau and I had the brilliant idea to turn our beloved king cake into what else but a pudding baked in a buttery cream-cheese mixture, topped with more sugar. Enough to make you go into a coma.
But, I will let you in on this little secret recipe ... not really a secret since I found it on the internet and made our own modifications. Know that we used a Meche's king cake and Beau always tends to overdo it on butter, cream, and sugar. I promise only a few bites will be enough for you are is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.
