this is my second cinnamon roll pin that i have tried in just a few weeks – yeah, i love them. my husband’s birthday was friday and he is very insistent on a cookie cake. we had two celebrations this year so i needed another idea for the second party. the cinnamon roll cake was perfect! he told me he wasn’t excited for cake but when i told him what i was making, he quickly changed his mind. it looked and tasted so good.
don’t expect a giant cinnamon roll though. i would compare the texture to coffee cake.
tip: i didn’t have a 9×13 pan so i used the pan just smaller. it worked fine and i would make it in this pan again if i didn’t have the 9×13. however, the cake bubbled over the edge, took a little longer to cook, and some of the cake was slightly burnt on the bottom (i don’t know why).
since my cake was so full, i was worried the icing would just roll off, but as the cake cooked it started cracking (this is important to make sure the icing gets inside the cake). I slowly poured on half the mixture, let it soak in, then poured the rest on.
