Mardi gras, king, cake
The recipe I used was a bit hard to follow when it came to filling it but it tasted really good:D
I made this for my mardi gras themed party.
4 ounces (half of a large block) cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup raisins, soaked in hot water for 15 minutes, drained, and patted dry on paper towels
1/2 cup pecan halves
2 rolls (total of 12 individual crescent rolls) refrigerated crescent rolls in the can
1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar (powdered sugar)
3 to 4 Tablespoon (about) milk or cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Purple, green, and yellow colored sugar crystals or food coloring

I borrowed this from the site I used for a recipe.
Take the triangles of cresent dough and place them point facing the center. Then overlap the pieces onto each other till they look like the picture.
I had issues with this part. It doesn't work very well so when you put the filling on in a circle just fold the edges on the inside towards the out, then like wise for the outside, till you have a circle shaped pastry.
I will totally try it out!
