Cinnamon rolls for my theme menu took flight - as butterflies, naturally! I formed the wings using convenient refrigerated rolls. An outline of icing and cherry "spots" brought the yummy rolls to life. -Kendra Barclay, De Kalb, Illinois
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 1 tube (12.4 ounces) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
- 8 maraschino cherries
- Separate rolls and cut in half. Place on a greased baking sheet with cinnamon side up and curved edges touching to form wings. Cut cherries into six wedges; place three on each wing. Bake at 400° for 13-17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Stir icing until smooth; place in a pastry bag with a round tip (or in a small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner). Pipe icing to outline the wings.
