    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

    Spread icing on warm cakes. Sprinkle with colored sugars.

Expert Tips

  • To make homemade colored sugar, add sugar and a drop of food color to a small food-storage plastic bag. Knead sugar with fingers on the outside of the bag until the color distributes evenly. Add additional food color to desired color.
  • To get sugar to stick to the icing, sprinkle the sugar on immediately after spreading icing on the mini king cakes.
