Quick King Cake Recipe: The Easiest Mardi Gras Cake Recipe Ever (Really!)

Intimidated at the thought of making a king cake? Well, I am. After reading Holly Budde's easy recipe for shortcut king cake (yum!), inspiration hit me on how to make a king cake for Mardi Gras.

Here's my easy (super easy!) idea for another Mardi Gras king cake for those of us who wait until the very last minute or just don't have the time.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes (approximately) 
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: Makes 1 cake




Here's how to make it:

  1. Prepare and bake the cake mix using a bundt pan. Remove from pan and cool.
  2. While cake is cooling, combine the glaze ingredients.
  3. Spread the glaze on the cake. 
  4. Alternate the sprinkle colors around the cake. 

Note: For an even easier cake – if that's even possible – use a can of vanilla frosting instead of making the glaze.
