These king cakes are super easy for kids to make.

You need Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls, the icing that comes with the rolls, milk, powdered sugar, and purple green and cold sprinkles. One can of cinnamon rolls makes 4 mini king cakes.

Preheat your oven to 375. Then take your cinnamon rolls and roll them out into strips. Take two strips and braid them together into a little circle until you have enough little king cakes.

Pop them in the oven for 10-15 minutes. Then set aside to cool.

Once your mini king cakes are cool it’s time to ice them. Take the icing that the cinnamon rolls came with and mix it in a bowl with 2 tsp of milk, 1/4 cup of confectioners (powdered sugar). If it’s too runny add more powdered sugar, if it’s too thick, add more milk.

Ice your mini king cakes and sprinkle purple, green and gold sprinkles on top. Now eat and enjoy.
