Easy King Cake is a semi-homemade version of the traditional Mardis Gras dessert, made with canned cinnamon rolls and colored sugar.
If you’re a fan of Mardis Gras, then you’ve most likely heard of the famous King Cake. For those of you that aren’t familiar, let me explain. Mardis Gras actually means Fat Tuesday in French and it’s the day before Ash Wednesday when the Christian Lenten season of fasting begins. If you take part in Lent, then you will be “fasting” or giving up fatty foods until Easter. Mardis Gras is the last day to indulge in extravagant foods and many people like to enjoy King Cake. Especially in New Orleans.
