King Cake … and I am happy that I don’t own a bread machine!

The real name for this creation should be My Super Simple Easy Peasy Totally Cheater Faux King Cake. 

First of all, this really isn’t a recipe … it’s more like a confession …

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, which we (my family) really don’t celebrate … but this year I was feeling the need to participate (in a very small way) in this New Orleans tradition.  Let me explain …

  • Yesterday I received a text message from a friend, who’s originally from New Orleans, wishing me a Happy Mardi Gras.   Later the same “friend?” let me know that they would drink a few Hurricanes in my honor.
  • Monday, Liz from Hoosier Homemade made some beautiful cinnamon rolls (I am still drooling) using her bread machine.  While reading her recipe, I started to regret getting rid of my bread machine.
  • While grocery shopping yesterday, I decided to pick up a tube of refrigerated cinnamon rolls and make my Fake King Cake.
  • Last night, I made the Fake King Cake and ate two of cinnamon rolls even though I knew they were not as good as homemade.
  • Therefore, I am very happy that I gave my bread machine to a family that could use it … and I am not making eating cinnamon rolls on a regular basis.

So here are the directions for My Super Simple Easy Peasy Totally Cheater Faux King Cake.  This is so easy that I’m just giving you the photos …

    With you showing of the supplies, I don’t see a tiny plastic baby. You must had forgotten that a plastic baby is baked into your King Cake.
    Even using a tube of cinnamon rolls, if you made these at home; you can still call them Homemade. :}
