Do you want to make the easiest king’s cake in the world for Fat Tuesday this year? Well, I can tell you how to do that. You know, since I’m the queen of cutting corners in the kitchen.
All you need is a can of ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls. Straighten them out, and braid them together.
You need 3 for one side, and 3 for the other. Pinch the 2 braids together to form a circle for your king’s cake.
Bake according to regular package directions. Then, drizzle the icing that comes with them back and forth around the “cake”.
While the icing is still wet, sprinkle on purple, green, and yellow sugar. You can easily make your own with my directions here!
You can shove one of those plastic babies inside your king cake, or you can just put them on the plate like we did. (Or you can totally forgo the plastic babies. Whatev.)
