This method is a common one for making filled coffee cakes or Danish pastry rings. Here it is adapted to make an easy King Cake for Mardi Gras with its traditional purple (denoting justice), green (faith), and yellow (power) wide stripes of color. However, you will want to keep this simple method on file for a fast and easy filled coffee cake at any time of the year.

These instructions show how to form the King Cake. Refer to the standard recipe for full ingredients, measures, baking, and icing instructions.

Begin by unrolling crescent roll dough and separating the dough into triangles.
