Ingrédients for the king cake :
- 1 (16 oz) can of biscuits (regular, not the layered kind but the regular). We use “Grands”
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- A few spoonfuls of canned cream cheese frosting (optional)
- Yellow, Purple, Green Sprinkles
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with Release foil. You can skip this, but it makes clean up easier. Open the biscuits and lay them flat on the foil. Press them into a large circle (about 12 inches) or giant rectangle.
Paint the dough with butter, then mix sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle evenly over dough.
Lay babies or figurines somewhere on the dough.
Roll the dough up into a cylinder and pinch as tightly as possible to seal. Shape the cylinder into a round.
Bake for 35 minutes. Let cool slightly, then spoon icing over top and let it fall down sides. Sprinkle sugar on top.
Ready to eat! It tastes best shortly after being made, but also tastes good the next day.
