Make 3 Strips

Trim off any weird edges, as shown above, and then cut the dough into three equal, long strips.


Make the Braid

Pinch the three strips together at the top then braid them together.


Make the Ring

Gently stretch the braided dough until it's about 20 inches again, form a circle and pinch the two ends together.


Bake the Ring

Preheat the oven to 350 and bake for about 30 minutes.


Make the Icing

Combine the ingredients to make the icing. You want it this consistency.


Add Icing & Sprinkles
