The wonderful King Family has made this cake a few times and before I had to adopt a low-carb lifestyle, I enjoyed this cake immensely. I hope that you enjoy this terrific cake as much as I have.
This cake is always a big hit and the lovely matriarch of the family has been gracious enough to share her recipe for this lovely cake.

- 4 oz Cream cheese
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar

- 1-2 tbsp skim milk (varies based on desired consistancy)

Preheat oven to 350F
Place crescent roll slices around a round pan with the points pointing towards the center and press the seams between the segments.
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
Distribute the mixture into the pan on top of the crescent rolls.
Combine butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a mixing bowl until crumbly.
Sprinkle over the mixture previously placed in the pan on top of the crescent rolls.
