What a fun and tasty way to celebrate Mardi Gras! This bread pudding has all the elements of King Cake, plus a creamy custard addition. Each scoop is warm and scrumptious, and let’s not forget easy to make. Bring the flair and flavor of Mardi Gras right to your kitchen table, one sweet bite at a time. 

Bake up the Grands! Flaky Layer Biscuits according to the package instructions.

To make the custard, combine the milk, sugar and eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the cinnamon, raisins and pecans.
Let the biscuits cool and cut them into six 1-inch pieces.
Add the biscuits into the custard and gently mix them in, making sure to coat them very well. Let them soak for ten minutes, stirring occasionally to incorporate evenly.

Pour the mixture into a sprayed baking dish, and even out the top.

Bake uncovered at 350°F for approximately 20-25 minutes or until it’s cooked through.

While it’s baking make the glaze by mixing together the frosting and the bourbon.

Let the bread pudding cool slightly and then top it evenly with the glaze.
Now the fun part! Add those colorful and traditional King Cake sprinkles to the top of the glaze to make it pretty!
Serve it up and dig in.
