Miniature King Cakes for Mardi Gras

Since I never was able to get back to the grocery store this past weekend, and since I wasn't about to try and make King Cake from scratch right now, I planned to just skip it altogether this year and just stick with serving Pancakes for dinner...

However, I went to get something out of the freezer this morning and noticed that I had a package of frozen cinnamon rolls I bought a few months back and never used.  I pulled them out and defrosted them to make miniature Quick and Easy Mardi Gras King Cakes!  I even happened to have green and yellow napkins in the cupboard... 

I just love it when our little activities, for celebrating the Liturgical year at home, just fall into place without much planning or effort. 

Now we are off to Hide the Alleluia and make those pancakes!!
(With the baby comfortably tucked into that cozy wrap.) 


  1. Very cute! We made Mardi Gras Monkey Bread out of cinnamon rolls. The kids loved pulling it apart with their hands!

  2. Those came out so cute! Great idea!

  3. Good idea. I wasn't up to the full-blown, from scratch King Cake either, so my daughter made a regular spice cake and we decorated the white icing with purple, green and yellow sugar. It was festive and no one had any complaints about cake on a week night. :)

  4. Having an English father, my wife wouldn't miss making hot cross buns on Ash WEdnesday!
