Cream Cheese King Cake and King Cake Martini

I purchased the cream cheese King Cake for our Mardi Gras party from a local bakery.  

The recipe for the King Cake Martini is from the January/February 2013 issue of Food Network magazine.

Green, purple and gold sanding sugar for the glass rim
2 ounces cake flavored vodka
1/2 ounce Grand Marnier
1/2 ounce Bailey's Irish Cream
Ground cinnamon for dusting, if desired

Put a small pile each of green, purple and gold sanding sugar on a plate, keeping them separate.  Moisten the rim of a martini glass, then press part of the rim into each colored sugar.
Combine the alcohol into a cocktail shaker with ice.  Shake well, then strain into the prepared glass.  Dust with cinnamon if you'd like.
I added 2 ounces of half and half just to cut the alcohol a bit.  It was very smooth, creamy and delicious.
