Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

Who loves cinnamon rolls? I do! I’ve been known to eat a whole pan. Not that I condone that sort of behavior! I realized that I hadn’t baked any cupcakes in a long time and as I was humming and hawing over what flavor I was craving, I saw a tube of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls in the fridge (yes, I cheat sometimes!) and my mind was made up!

Glaze
  1. Mix powdered sugar with vanilla and slowly add in milk, ensuring not to flood the mixture

  3. Drizzle glaze over cupcakes when thoroughly cooled

  1. Oh my, I want these so much now! I’ve been craving cinnamon rolls and I ended up buying a coffee blend that is supposed to taste like one! It doesn’t really… but it’s still good coffee. 🙂 I’m absolutely making these when we get all settled in the new house next weekend!
