Easy King Cake Recipe

I looked online for an easy king cake recipe because I’m not one of those from-scratch kind of people. What I found wasn’t remotely close to what a King Cake is. One of the recipes even called for raisins. This ain’t fruitcake people.

I couldn’t find what I was looking for online, so I scrounged around in my fridge and pantry searching for something to put together. Sadly, I was out of food coloring and sprinkles, so I ended up making a Virgin King Cake. Plus, someone threw away the baby I saved (plastic one, not a real one).

Ingredients

Crescent roll dough for an easy king cake recipeCake

  • 2 Cans Large Flaky Buttery Crescent Roll dough
  • Some sugar
  • Some cinnamon
  • butter (the real stuff)
Icing
  • Confectioner’s sugar
  • More Butter
  • A splash of milk
  • A splash of vanilla (from Mexico that you picked up on your last cruise to Cozumel)
  • Food coloring or sprinkles in purple, gold (yellow), and green
  • One plastic baby

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pull out your pizza pan. Grab 2 cans of LARGE butter flavored crescent rolls. Unroll all the triangles and place large end towards the outside, like making one of those Pampered Chef crescent roll rings. Place tiny dabs of butter all around the middle of the dough that’s laid out, forming a pretty circle. Sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar all around where you put the butter. Fold the large ends of the triangles over your buttery cinnamon sugar mix. Pull the inside parts of the dough over the top. You should have a large ring of dough. You don’t want a perfect circle, but more of an oval shape. Bake until golden brown all over.

Easy King Cake recipe icingWhile the cake (aka glorified cinnamon roll) is baking, mix your buttercream frosting. Just so you know, the only reason I made it this way is because I was out of pre-made cake icing in my cabinet. There’s no shame in using can icing. Put 3 3/4 cup of confectioner’s sugar, melted butter, milk, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix with a hand mixer until fluffy. Separate the frosting into three bowls and add food coloring so that you have one bowl of purple icing, one bowl of yellow/gold icing, and one bowl of green icing.

After the king cake has cooled a bit, alternate topping the cake with the three colors of icing. At some point, place the plastic baby somewhere inside the cake, unless you have little ones in your family. You can also add sprinkles. Slice and serve with coffee, a mimosa, and friends.

Tip: If you’d like to jazz up your King Cake, it can be filled with cream cheese, pie filling, pecans, caramel, or whatever you like. I’ve seen some King Cakes topped with chocolate icing and added caramel drizzles.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

Like a full Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from The University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a entire school requirement of 180 units and a price of $30,560.
