The DIY King Cake
2 cans of cinnamon rolls
Non-stick baking spray
4 oz cream cheese
1.5 cups powdered sugar
1 cup of granulated sugar divided into 1/3 cup portions
Gel food colors (purple, green, yellow/gold)
3 sandwich sized ziplock bags
Set oven to 350 degrees and spray non-stick spray around Bundt pan. Cut each cinnamon roll into fourths and place evenly around Bundt pan. Bake for approx. 15-18 minutes until golden brown. While rolls are in the oven, beat cream cheese on high and slowly add in the powdered sugar. Once it is combined, put to the side. When rolls are finished baking, let them rest for 5 minutes before flipping over to cool down. Put 1/3 cup of granulated sugar in each sandwich sized Ziplock bag and put a drop or two of each gel food coloring in each bag, close and mix the color and sugar by massaging the bags of sugar.
To assemble the cake, spread the cream cheese frosting over the top of the cake then pour the colored sugars on top of the cake with a spoon, alternating colors and then pull apart to eat and enjoy!
