  1. don't know how discriminating your "kids" are - but its easy to buy or make a simple cake - whatever kind you like, though I guess the classic is a yeast dough (could try using a brioche or plain babka)insert a bean or plastic baby figure into it (for the king), frost or glaze it and put on colored sprinkles,purple, green and yellow in a pattern that pleases you. Voila, a king cake. The colored sprinkles can be purchased among other places at NY Cake on 22nd St.
