Cinnamon Roll Wreath – Festive, beautiful and delicious Cinnamon-Roll shaped into a ring and decorated with a sweet Vanilla Glaze.
Welcome back, Friday! Always happy to see you. Even happier to see you, my beautiful friends!
I have a major issue at the moment. It’s food. I want LOTS of it. It’s a thing that happens every year, one week before December, and it continues up until February.
More specifically, I just want sugar rolled up in dough with a whole lotta butter and cinnamon. Whomp Whomp!
When I set out to make this Cinnamon Roll Wreath, I thought I was being all cool and helpful making some festive foods to share with my invisible internet friends, but it turns out that this whole Cinnamon Roll Wreath ain’t nothin’ new!
See, because I grew up in a house where Macedonian food was the only thing served day in and day out, sometimes I really ain’t in the know about clever food-wreaths and Elf on the Shelf-things.
Forgive me? Sphanx!
But, let me start at the beginning.
SO, as I was watching Home Alone for the bagazillionth time in my life, I had this idea about spreading some Nutella on a loaf of French Bread and just going at it. I kinda stopped from going ahead with the idea since, you know, it’s a bit much. Instead, as I talked myself into grabbing two slices of WHOLE GRAIN toasted bread and a cup of tea, a light went off and I was game. I grabbed my rolling pin and got to work.
Here’s the deal. Since it’s Friday, this should totally happen in your kitchen tomorrow morning.
Also? The good news is that this is WAY awesome!
The bad news is that I burnt it on 3 different occasions because my oven and I are not on the same page. Totally worth it, though.
However, that beast of an oven is getting its own oven thermometer, asap.
The better news is that there’s not that much work involved here. Prep time is about 20 minutes, and that includes mixing, rolling, filling.
Spread some buttah and cinnamon-sugar all over it and your (my) life will be complete.
