Feaux King Cake

So you want to make a king cake but you don't want to spend the entire day doing it? Well, Mike and I made one tonight and it literally took less than thirty minutes, start to finish. How to do it? Here ya go:
  • 1 tube/can dinner rolls
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 375. Roll out the dinner rolls. Mix the butter, cinnamon and sugar together and spread onto the rolled-out rolls. Roll the rolled-out dough into a spiral and twist and lay on a greased cookie sheet, joining the ends to make an oval. Bake for 15 minutes, but keep an eye on it. Some of the sugar/cinnamon/butter mixture leaked out and the house got smoky...!!! While the cake is still hot, glaze and decorate it.

For the sugar glaze:
  • confectioner's/powdered sugar
  • milk
Mix the milk and sugar to make an icing-like consistency. Spoon onto the hot cake. Sprinkle purple, gold and green sugar on the cake. We made our colored sugar by putting some sugar in Ziploc bags along with appropriate amounts of food coloring gel and mushing it up until we had a good color going.
