Anyone have anything they like to make?
My girls know that when it is Mardi Gras time that means it is also crawfish season and time for some great crawfish boils, which is their favorite thing. We eat as much as we can get during the season, it does last longer than Mardi Gras season at least......it is a wonderful thing that my brother has a couple of friends that are crawfish farmers. We also seem to have a lot of jambalaya around this time of year. Oh, and let me not forget the king cakes....my girls could consume a small one just the three of them.
Do you have a recipe you could share for King's Cake?

Mardi Gras Icing
Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 10-inch round pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Separate crescent rolls at perforations, into 16 slices. Place slices around prepared pan with points in the center.
About halfway down from points, press seams of individual rolls together to form a joined circle of rolls. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla until creamy. Spread on dough in the center where seams have been pressed together.
In another small bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over cream cheese. Fold dough points over filling, then fold bottom of triangle over points, forming a circular roll like a king cake. The filling should be completely covered by the crescent rolls at this point.
Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and drizzle with colored Mardi Gras Icing.
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except food coloring. Divide mixture into 3 bowls. In first bowl, add a few drops of yellow food coloring. In second bowl, add a few drops of green food coloring. In third bowl, add equal drops of red and blue food coloring to create purple. Drizzle over baked cake.
