Mine didn't look nearly as pretty and it was a looong process. The girls loved it and it tasted much more like an authentic King Cake. We're hoping to make it to Mardi Gras sometime in the next few years and we promised Bella a real Randazzo's cake.
My only tip for this is make sure its in an airtight container with some bread to keep it moist. It gets dry quickly.
