smooth and elastic. Stir dough in well buttered bowl and turn so all
surfaces are buttered. Cover with a towel and let rise 1 1/2 hours or until

floured board. Knead, then pat into a 14" cylinder. Place on baking sheet
and form into a large ring. Press trinket into dough so that it is hidden.
Set aside, covered with a towel, to rise 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Before baking,
brush top with the egg milk mixture. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven

ingredients until smooth. Spread over top of cake, letting drip down sides.
Immediately sprinkle sugars over icing in 2" wide strips of purple, green
and yellow stripes. *Colored sugar is sold in baking supply houses. If you
can't find it, tint icing with food coloring.
