Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 5 rolls. To make mini king cake, unroll 1 roll into a dough rope; fold rope in half lengthwise. Twist dough in a spiral, and shape into a circle. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat to use up rolls, placing 2 inches apart.
  • 3
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4
    Spread icing on warm cakes. Sprinkle with colored sugars.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To make homemade colored sugar, add sugar and a drop of food color to a small food-storage plastic bag. Knead sugar with fingers on the outside of the bag until the color distributes evenly. Add additional food color to desired color.
  • tip 2
    To get sugar to stick to the icing, sprinkle the sugar on immediately after spreading icing on the mini king cakes.
