Happy Mardi Gras: Super Simple King Cake Recipe

Something Smells GoodAngelina OberdanComment

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. 

Ingredients: 

  1. Two containers of Pillsbury Grands with icing. 
  2. A bundt cake pan
  3. Some sort of pan spray
  4. Sprinkles (preferably green, yellow, and purple) 
  5. And a baby 

Steps

<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. 

 While the King Cake is cooking, try to find the rest of your sprinkles. I didn't have regular purple, but I did have purple/black/white ghosts from Halloween. They worked just fine.&nbsp;

<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.) 

<7> Decorate! 

And enjoy! I know it's not the same as the King Cakes at Krogers, but it'll do!
