1. Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake

We think that this would be perfect for a wedding cake, because first of all, it’s absolutely huge, and secondly, it’s also super delicious.

This giant cinnamon roll cake employs one large cinnamon swirl on the top, rather than using several smaller swirls in order to create its effect. 

We think that this looks great for a wedding cake, as it’s incredibly uniform, and gives the whole cake a sense of elegance.

If you’ve never made one giant cinnamon roll before, then don’t worry, it’s super easy. In order to create the roll-like appearance, you essentially gather all of the dough together, and use all of it to create a large swirl. 

Another great thing about this recipe is that it doesn’t take a long time to make. It only requires one short rest, and one long rise. 

We’d recommend using this giant cinnamon roll recipe as a topping for your regular sponge, as it looks great layered on top of a delicious cake base. 

To top this one off, the whole thing is smothered in lots of vanilla icing, which gives it a super indulgent and tasty vibe. 

2. Cinnamon Roll Layer Cake

If you’re looking for the best cinnamon roll layer cake recipe on the whole of the internet, then we think that you should take a look at this one.

It has a total of three layers, which makes it great for catering for larger crowds, as well as lots of cinnamon buttercream frosting, and a sweet cinnamon glaze to top it all off. 

We really think that the frosting is the star of the show when it comes to this recipe, and we love how incredibly thick and creamy the texture is.

It’s made out of butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, vegetable shortening, and plenty of cinnamon. 

Bear in mind that this recipe makes a whole lot of frosting, enough to cover the whole cake and some for piping at the end. You can pipe some pretty shapes onto the base of the cake itself, as there’s plenty to do so.

You can finish this cake off simply by sprinkling some cinnamon on top, which gives it a really elegant appearance. 

3. Cinnamon Roll Swirl Cake

This cake has a super fluffy inner layer due to plenty of butter and sugar. As well as this, it has a healthy dollop of sour cream, which helps to give the whole thing an added sense of richness.

The addition of egg whites help to keep the whole thing as soft as possible. 

After you’ve baked the cake, it’s time to start layering it with your super rich and flavorful cinnamon frosting.

As you may have noticed from the cake itself, it’s been made using copper and ivory frosting in order to create an ombre effect. This really adds a sense of elegance and class to the cake.

This one stands out from the crowd because it’s actually a combination of both vanilla and cinnamon together. The result is a super delicious yet subtle flavor that we absolutely adore. 

This one has some super unusual flavors added to the mix, including dark chocolate and chili peppers. These are used for the buttercream, which is used as the layering for the whole cake.

The flavors of the buttercream work perfectly together with the subtle flavors of the sponge, and really make this cake pop. 

Bear in mind that this recipe creates an incredibly large cake, so you may need to modify the ingredients list depending on how many people you’re catering for. 

The cake is layered on top with white fondant, which makes it the perfect base for decoration. Have fun experimenting with different styles and toppings to really make this cake your own.

It’s super dense, yet moist and fluffy at the same time. 

For the layering, a cinnamon buttercream is used, made from salted butter, shortening, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and water.

Combine all of these ingredients together and you’ve got yourself a super thick delicious filling for your cake. 

The creator of this recipe stated that she didn’t want to simply layer the cake with watered down icing sugar, as she wanted it to appear more decadent.

Instead, to create the perfect icing, you’ll be mixing heavy whipping cream, salted butter, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, corn syrup, and powdered sugar.

You’ll then follow the tutorial to create the amazing drip effect displayed by the cake, which emulates the glaze that you’d find on top of a stack of cinnamon rolls.
