Sophia’s King Cake

We were invited to a Super Bowl party yesterday and I was asked to bring a dessert of course.  But, as [good] fortune would have it I was laid out with a stomach virus and couldn’t move off the couch.  This is the conversation I had with my 9 year old, Sophia:

Sophia: “Mommy, aren’t you going to make macarons for the party?”

Me: (Laughing) “Honey, I can’t move!”

Sophia: “But they’ll be so disappointed.”

Me: “Why don’t you make something?”

She was excited by that idea and I reminded her of the king cake she had made from her kids’ cookbook a couple of years ago.  But I challenged her (more like insisted) that she make it from scratch and not from the ready-made biscuit dough that was suggested in her kiddie cookbook.  We argued about this for a little bit before we came to an agreement: she would make it from scratch if I would post it in my blog.  I am so proud of her phenom baking skills.
