Food for Thought: Cheater Kings Cakes for Fat Tuesday!

While Pinteresting :) I found this link for the easy Kings Cakes ~ I thought, how cool! So I found what I had available in my house and made my own version for Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras!

(Yeah these bad boys are so unhealthy, but it's only Fat Tuesday once a year! ENJOY!)
First, preheat oven to 350 degrees.

I had a can of Pillsbury Grands Buttery Biscuits in my fridge so I thought they'd work perfectly. :) I laid them out on my lined baking sheet. I melted about 2 tbsp of butter and them spread it out over each biscuit (I didn't use ALL the 2 tbsp. - I'm not Paula Dean y'all!)

I then liberally sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar. I have no idea how much, just until each was pretty coated, hehe :)

Then I baked them for about 20 minutes... Ooo did they smell yummy too! After baking let cool completely.

In a bowl, I mixed 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp of vanilla, and approx 3 tsp of milk (you may need more depending on consistency). After mixing, I dipped each "cake" into the icing covering to my liking. (Yum!)

After I iced each one, I took my purple & teal food gel icing and striped each for added fun colors for the Mardi Gras theme. (I wish I would've had yellow on hand!)

I think they turned out pretty darn cute... and tasty, to boot! If you noticed, I had 9 biscuits but only 8 made it to the plate. Hehe, I had to eat one *oh darn*!!

Don't mind my grubby appearance, I was in "creating mode"... *ahem* sure. LOL


  1. Hmmmm ..... I'm thinking .....

    We don't have Grands but I do have some smaller biscuit cans in the fridge!

  2. Yum! I think I'd prefer yours to my dripping with frosting & sugar ones!

  3. This tastes more like a sweet donut, lol... which is just a perfect treat for Little Miss and the fella as a surprise. :)
    Plus it's delish with a cup of coffe, hehe!

  4. Very simple and so cute - I would say that they look better than regular king cake! ^^

  5. Mmmmmm. Those looks like puffs of pure joy!


Let me know your thoughts!
