MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 8, 2014

I've done this with a cake at Easter for years, but never thought of trying it with cinnamon rolls. Easy to do since it starts with a can of cinnamon rolls. Definitely going to add this to my list of Easter traditions!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 22, 2014

Making these Easter morning has been a tradition for several years now. I always decorate it differently based on what candy I have on hand. I love that they look like you spent more time on them than you really did.

Very cute and so easy. I did not decorate the same way. Just tinted the icing pink and used pastel M&M's for eyes. A big hit with my kids!
