Needed to Prepare:
Frozen rolls, butter, milk, vanilla extract
Thaw 12 frozen rolls to room temperature. Roll the rolls out into a 12x18 inch rectangle and cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 20 minutes. Make filling by combining the contents of large package with 1/2 cup melted butter. Spread the filling evenly over the dough and roll up tightly like a jelly roll, beginning at the wide side. Bring the ends of the roll together to form oval shaped ring. Place ring on a greased cookie sheet. Cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in a warm spot for 1 hour. Bake in preheated, 350 oven for 30 minutes. Push the doll into the bottom of the cake. Make icing by mixing the small package with 1 ½ Tbsp. melted butter, 1 ½ Tbsp. milk, and ¼ tsp. vanilla extract. If you want to color your frosting: Divide frosting into 3 batches, tinting 1 green, 1 yellow, and combining red and blue food coloring for purple frosting. Tradition says that whoever gets the baby, wins a prize, has to purchase the next King Cake, has good luck the following year, etc.
