Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I made this king cake for a project and it turned out too salty. I searched other recipes afterwards and I later found out that it should've been 1 1/2 TSP of salt not CUP. Anyway, the point is that you need to update this recipe before other people create it with 1 1/2 cups of salt instead of tsps. Submitted by:

I love King Cake, and this looks like a great recipe. Thanks for sharing it! It would be better if you could include the glaze and colored sugar topping into the nutritional breakdown. I'll have to make this cake soon! Laissez les bons temps roulez! Submitted by:
