I'm so thrilled that I can do it myself. So much money saved cause in bakery it's so expensive. It was my first time trying puff pastry and it's so easy. I also made the filling in the microwave. I used less sugar, maybe 80 g. We all liked the taste but DH found it tasted a little bit too much lemon. Next time I'll use just a little bit of lemon zest or maybe omit it completely. I know next year I'm going to bring it to my MIL to keep on the tradition we had when my FIL was with us. Thanks awalde :) Made for PRMR tag game

I've always wanted to make one of these cakes, & seeing your recipe made me even more determined! Then, when I found that one of my neighbor's was throwing a birthday their one-&-only 5-year-old grandson, & offered to make this one! They were totally delighted with it, as were the guests! Of course, we had to change the whys & wherefores of the bean in the cake! The person who found the bean was admonished to 'follow the bean' & would then find a final prize somewhere around the house! The other kids all helped out with that! In the kitchen, UNDER a bowl of similar beans, was a silver dollar wrapped in a $2 bill & that went to the person who got the original bean! Anyway, more fun, but not only that, your King Kake was wonderful tasting, & I plan to make it again sometime & serve it without the prize! Thanks for sharing all this with us!
