Big Fun: An Enormous, and Delicious, Cinnamon Roll

Have you ever wondered "what would happen if you baked a package of pop-n-bake cinnamon rolls as one long, continuously huge cinnamon roll?".

If so, you're not alone. And happily, I have the answer: it's basically the easiest way ever to make a big pile of awesome. And, ah, you know, work your way toward morbid obesity.

The finished product vaguely resembles a cross-section of a very old tree--but in this case, each ring in its spiral is a layer of delicous.

Now, I'm not quite sure if these pictures really convey scale. If you need a realistic idea of the scale of this thing, consider the size of a football player's head, in a helmet, and you'll be getting the idea.

A Very Large Cinnamon Roll

Serves 1-8, depending on how hungry you are



  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Place one of the rolls in the center of a large, lightly buttered baking pan (either 9x9 or 9x13-inch). Unroll the next one and continue it in a spiral around the first one; repeat with the succeeding rolls until you have one long, continuous snail of a cinnamon roll.
  3. Bake 25-29 minutes or until browned.
  4. Spread with the provided icing.
  5. Enjoy.

This + your last cinnamon roll experiment (the one with cookie dough) = epic win. i am so going to get diabetes.

That is freaking awesome. I sorta wish I could chew right now lol. Jaw surgery really kills my buzz lol.

Now that's my idea of a cinnamon roll!!! How fun!


That is freaking awesome. What if you combined this with the cookie dough cinnamon roll? I think might just have to find out. Hahaha.

The cinna roll looks like it has a life of its own! Brilliant idea!
That first shiny-glazy-sticky picture literally made my mouth water and I swear the pixels were releasing the smell of hot cinnamon and butter. :X

I think a couple of strips of bacon across the top would be appropriate. Baked on.

All I can do is stare at all of the super delicious pictures of super delicious food on your website T_T I can't eat them for fear of getting a heart attack, but rest assured, I eat them in my dreams :] This looks sooooo amazing.

"Serves 1-8, depending on how hungry you are"

You crack me up! :-)

wonder if you bake it upside down with a mixture of raisina,pecans and corn syrup if it would be a giant sticky bun

So, in the name of shameless self promotion, I have to tell you that I made a cinnamon roll like this once. But I put a cream cheese filling in between the tree/cinnamon roll rings. And it was yummy and awesome and a good time was had by all.

Here's the link if you're interested:

Gosh! I want this so badly. This looks like a perfect thing for Sunday morning (so I can share with the husband).

Oh my gosh, that is ridiculous-- in a great way! :)

My only issue might be with the buns-in-a-tube-- don't they have trans fats or something similarly bad?

WOW. I had a craving for cinnamon rolls this weekend and was planning on making some. But this? This is the motherload of all cinnamon roll-y goodness... Now I have my game plan, and best of all, it doesn't even require a messy recipe where you have to wait for yeasty dough to rise and roll it all out sprinkling it with cinnamon and making a huge mess in the kitchen!
