Demigod Cake

As in Greek Mythology, the parent of this cake is based off of the traditional king cake. However, this cake is so much more than its parent could be, losing the pretentiousness associated with the holiday while gaining flavor. It is brought back to its simplest form of a rich cake topped with a delicious cream cheese frosting. Furthermore, this recipe is less about appearance and more about taste, emphasizing the main flavors of the rich Danish dough, cinnamon, cream cheese and vanilla. Although, like the traditional king cake, this cake can be filled with a myriad of jams and cream cheese, I recommend trying the basic recipe first and deciding for yourself if it needs any other flavors. I recommend a very tall glass of milk to accompany this rich desert!
