Easy King Cake Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 tubes 17.5 oz each, jumbo cinnamon rolls
  • 1 tub 16 oz, white frosting
  • green yellow and violet color gels
  • -Used Wilton Leaf Green Golden Yellow and Violet color gels


Cinnamon Roll King Cake Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Grease a bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Press cinnamon rolls into pan. They will want to pop up so you'll need to squeeze them together. Keep them pressed down and into the pan and as level as possible. You can easily flatten with your palms. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before inverting pan on a flat surface and cooling completely before frosting.
  • To frost, divide frosting in three separate bowls and color each bowl a separate color with color gels. Place icing into a resealable bag but do not seal. Place all 3 bags into the microwave and heat for 15 seconds. Remove from microwave, seal and knead each bag and snip the tip of the bag. Drizzle the frosting onto the cake. You can re-heat the bags if they thicken after sitting.
  • Let set for the icing to thicken and serve!
