Photos: Putting the L.A. Times' king cake recipe to the test

King_Cake_Adri_Barr
From the looks of it, our Mardi Gras king cake recipe was a hit.

Times Test Kitchen Manager Noelle Carter crafted a king cake recipe rich with butter, cream cheese, toasted pecans and apples. She said it was the perfect way to mark Mardi Gras -- the end of Carnival season -- before Lent begins. (Like we needed any convincing!)

The recipe was a hit with readers. Several shared images of the delicious results, including Adri Barr Crocetti of Sherman Oaks, who writes the food blog the Front Burner -- that's her festive photo above -- as well as Linda Geiler of Davie, Fla., who writes the food blog Savoring Every Bite. You'll find the photo gallery here.

Thanks for sharing your photos, Adri and Linda!

If you try any of the recipes from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen, we'd like to see the photographic evidence so we can showcase some of them on the blog and, occasionally, in print. You can upload your images here.
