  • 2 tubes cinnamon rolls (12.4 oz each)
  • sprinkles gold, green, and purple

  • Preheat oven following package directions.
  • Remove rolls from tube and lay them vertically, forming a ring, on a parchment-lined baking pan.
  • If you are including the optional baby/bean, place the item between two of the rolls in the cake.
  • Bake the ring following package directions.
  • Allow roll to cool slightly. Decorate with provided frosting package and colored sprinkles.

  • Whoever gets the slice with the king cake baby is king of Mardi Gras and will supposedly have a lucky year. Some traditions state this person has to either host or bring the king cake for the next year's Mardi Gras celebration.
