You can do this one of two ways: prepare your cinnamon rolls as you normally would, then plate them in the shape of an oval. Ice, then pour your festive purple, green, and gold sprinkles on top. Now they're ready to be devoured! Your second option would be to twist the rolls together into the shape of your King Cake and repeat the same final steps. No matter your choice, it's a quick way to celebrate the carnival season and incredibly delicious! NOTE: If you can't find the sprinkles you can change the color of your icing with food coloring. I did and it worked out just fine.
The best thing about this recipe is that it's inter-changable throughout the holidays. Use red and green sprinkles during Christmas, pink and red for Valentines, black and orange during Halloween...you get the picture. It's a simple year-round treat for the entire family and all of your friends.
So the next time you come across some cinnamon rolls, jazz them up a little. Think outside the can!
