"I have made this recipe for so many years. I love the sweetness that the cake mix adds and it also helps to keep the rolls softer and more moist! This is a winning recipe!"

"These were pretty good and they certainly satisfied my pregnancy craving for cinnamon rolls, but my husband, brother and I could tell they were made from a cake mix rather than from scratch. By that I mean there was a much more subtle taste and the rolls were a little more dense. Overall though, good!"

"I wanted a quick cinnamon roll recipe that I could make and take for our Sunday School Class. Decided to give this a try and they were fabulous! Only adjustment I may make is to use warmed milk rather than water next time. But I see lots of these rolls in my family's future!"

"I have made these cinnamon rolls SO many times and have never been disappointed in the results. I have been asked many times if I take orders for them! My family loves them, and they are so easy to make I never say no when my 9 year old asks for them on a Saturday morning."
