Around here we give our children the option of what birthday “dessert” they’d like to choose from.  They are all fussy in their own right and that’s fine, so they get their choice.  Do you want pie?  Is it a cupcake sort of birthday?  Frozen ice cream cake?  Eclairs from the bakery?  Whatever it is they have a deadline to get their decision made and then that’s what we stick a candle into on the special day.

This year we have a big birthday at our house, an 18th birthday, which is super exciting!  Just so happens that this particular offspring is one of the fussiest (hates all things chocolate, weirdo right?) so her decision is even more important since she’s so extra finicky.  She came up with a good one this year, one that all family members gobbled up, even the littlest who is our 2nd pickiest (yes, I rank them).

Glazed Cinnamon Roll Cake is a no-fuss no muss type of cake, you can get this made and start enjoying in just a short time span.  Personally, that’s my favorite type of dessert since I’m rather impatient.  And you can serve this slightly warm, so it really is just like similar freshly baked cinnamon roll.  When I originally found this recipe (who knows where, it was written on a piece of paper in my recipe binder) it listed double the glaze ingredients, now that was just WAY too much glaze for my taste, so if you are a fan of heavy glaze, just double the glaze.  Enjoy! PS-this is really good for breakfast too *wink wink*.

  1. This is a very nice, easy recipe and can easily be dressed up a bit with some fruit added to it, as well. I will be dicing apple to include in mine and would also think blueberry would be delicious, too. I look forward to making this.

    • Carol, I love the idea of diced apples, will be trying that myself next time I make this! Thank you for stopping over!

  2. What a wonderful treat to wake up to! This sounds so good. Perfect with my morning coffee. xo, Catherine

  3. If I want to make this for a brunch, is it okay to put it in the fridge the night before baking it, or is it best to complete the recipe and then bake it and serve chilled?

    • Hi Lindsey, I personally would bake and chill until you need to. I’ve found it is best served slightly warm after adding the glaze. Hope you enjoy!

  4. Oh man this looks awesome! I’m a food blogger and found you on a link party. I’ve followed your social sites and hope we can connect on those. I love your social media icons (the martini glasses) — so fun! Can’t wait to read more of your blog. Becky

  1. […] We’ve made these for birthday celebrations in the past, they work especially well for work functions where there’s a lot of people moving around as they are portable and bite sized.  But of course for regular birthdays we normally opt for Cream Cheese Frosted Chocolate Java Cake or a non-traditional birthday cake such as a Glazed Cinnamon Roll Cake.
