Cinnamon Roll King Cake + A Video

Raise your hand if you are slightly obsessed with Buzzfeed's Tasty videos? Food videos are kind of taking over social media recently. I catch myself watching near 10 food videos in a row. From roasted chicken and veggies, to cake mix cookies four ways, to buffalo dip etc. 

If you don't know what I'm talking about, Buzzfeed has a Facebook page called Tasty where they post short little step by step videos on how to easily make fun recipes. These recipes have been getting shared left and right in my news feed. Our generation is visually stimulated and these videos are basically a super speed food show. 

I took a dabble at my own Tasty-like video to bring a little pizzaz to my easy peasy individual Cinnamon Roll King Cakes!

Cinnamon Roll King Cakes
yields 5 individual cakes

Ingredients:
1 tube of cinnamon rolls, icing included
purple, yellow and green sprinkles

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet and set aside.

Unravel a cinnamon roll. Fold it in half longways, then twist it. Bring the two edges together to create a circle and press the ends so it stays together. Repeat with each cinnamon roll. Bake for 18-20 minutes. 

Right out of the oven, evenly distribute the frosting on each cake. Immediately follow with the sprinkles in alternating colors to give them the signature King Cake look. Throw some beads on and enjoy!

Not quite Buzzfeed's Tasty, but it does the trick! What did you think, are we into the food videos? I'm kind of obsessed...
