A few months ago, we saw the Rolling Stones on stage, embraced their epicness for almost 3 hours… and had a major blackout.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards started us up and we never really went down. We feel better now, though (Do we ? Do we really ?! #denial), and thus, we have decided it’s more than time to pay our tribute to our beloved Kings of rock & blues.

Baking a cake for The Rolling Stones

It took us a long time to get the right idea. Turns out, the answer was right under our noses, buried in the Louisiana swamp. As always.

OMG, we saw Keith Richards !!! From The Rolling Stones!!!

What are we talking about? Ah, yes, pastry.

OMG, we saw Mick F**king Jagger !!! Bloody hell, we said “f**k” in a well-mannered blog!

Isn’t it lovely? Isn’t it wonderful?

Anyway, we had an epiphany. We had to create an outrageously good-looking cake with rich flavors, a brilliant mix of peaceful wisdom and eternal youth fury, in a word: a cake made for Rock Royalty. No doubt about it, the only cake worthy of the Rolling Stones had to be a King Cake. Et voilà!

As you may or may not know, the King Cake originates in Louisiana, just like blues music. And its preparation takes a lot of rolling. Like, really a lot.

A classic reinterpreted by yours truly.
