Last week it was rainy and humid, and I was thinking about how much I miss Louisiana and Mardi Gras break (especially when it lands right after the Super Bowl.)
So I took it upon myself to make a delicious king cake. Please know that last year, my king cake was terrible. And I knew that this year, any cake I made wasn't going to match up to the King Cakes at the Krogers.
After some googling, I found out that you can make pretty simple King Cake by using cinnamon rolls.
- Two containers of Pillsbury Grands with icing.
- A bundt cake pan
- Some sort of pan spray
- Sprinkles (preferably green, yellow, and purple)
- And a baby
<1> Preheat the oven to 350.
<2> Spray the pan.
<3> Arrange the cinnamon rolls inside the pan. Note that you are going to have to squish them in there.
<4> Bake for approximately 25 minutes.
<5> Once it's done cooking, remove the cake, let it cool if you're patient. and then flip it over onto a plate.
<6> Drizzle the icing over the cake. (It would be awesome if you mixed the icing that comes with the cinnamon rolls with cream cheese. Just saying.)
