Pin-Tested Tuesday: Candy Cane Coffee Cake

New feature here at The Hickman Five. A place to talk about those pins that we see, love and actually try.

SO here is the original pin that I saw:

My thought was -- That would be AMAZING for our 2nd annual North Pole Breakfast.  {This is our breakfast on the Saturday after Thanksgiving where our elf arrives.}

This pin took me over to Shower of Roses.  Then to get the recipe I had to go over to Catholic Cuisine.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving I get up before everyone does (around 6am) and get busy in the kitchen.  It was rather simple.  The first time I am making something I don't stray from the recipe.  It looked right.

While it was cooking I mixed up some hot cocoa.  Warm chocolate milk with the packets.  Marshmallows and a candy cane!  Perfection.

Christmas in a Cup!
Time! Looks good.  I didn't glaze ours, mainly because we were having TONS of other sweets.
Honestly, flavor wise I didn't think it really needed the glaze.

Table set ...

Eddie our Elf brings presents, wraps our table, makes breakfast and is with us all Christmas season.  

Verdict on our tested pin:  Crescent rolls are probably not the best base for this.  Puffed pastry or pie dough might be a better idea.  Something that might stiffen up some more on the bottom.  Could be that I didn't bake it quite long enough.  I would make it again, but I might tweak the recipe next time.

Love to hear about your tested pins!
