While the King Cake, is a world wide phenomenon, I wonder about the ingredients that make up the cake. There are many variation of the King Cake. Each represents culture and the indigenous ingredients of that culture. Vegans represent a growing massive lifestyle and eating style culture, world wide, and our version would use non animal or plant-based ingredients for our consumption and participation in the celebration of its meaning of faith and Divinity.

However, I do not post an actual step by step recipe. You can find actual vegan king cake recipes online; simply input: Vegan King Cakes and use the useful ingredient guide below.
