  • air fryer


  • 1 can pillsbury crescent rolls
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBS sugar
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 TBS milk


  • Unroll crescent rolls and separate them into their triangles. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on each triangles and roll up each triangle, rolling the dough on the longer side. Once it is rolled up then twist into a circle and smash the dough down a bit, as it will "puff" up once they start air frying. Place each in the air fryer and set the temperature low, around 300, and cook around 4-5 minutes. Flip the cakes and turn up heat to around 350 degree for another 2-3 minutes or until they are a golden brown. Let cool. Mix up icing with the powdered sugar and milk and spoon over each king cake. Add sprinkles accordingly and enjoy this easy and delicious Mardi Gras treat!
