    Hey all! Ill start off by saying I am not a baker at all. I do cater cajun food and one of the things I like to make for people is the King Cake. Once my dough is rolled out, I fill with a cream cheese filling with sugar and cinnamon. I roll up the dough and try my best to pinch the seams shut. Every time I bake them, the explode open on me like in the pic. I poked vent holes in the top to let steam escape in case that was the problem but it still happens. Anybody have any advice? Thanks!
