We can’t think of anything more cozy, delicious and heart-warming than an ooey-gooey, dripping with frosting, warm cinnamon bun! So we are totally on-board with the latest trend for 2019 wedding desserts: Cinnamon Bun Cakes! Yes, bakers are actually making glorious cakes out of the breakfast time fave. Serve up something cinnamon inspired for your wedding and your guests will most certainly roll with it!
Cinnamon Bun cakes are a unique alternative to traditional wedding cakes. They work perfectly for rustic themed weddings, spring weddings, glam weddings, boho weddings, fall weddings, forest wedding, beach weddings, well …. any wedding really! Because just about everyone on the planet loves them some Cinnamon Buns! These luscious, pillowy spirals of buttery dough filled with hypnotic swirls of warm cinnamon and sweet sugar just melt in your mouth like a warm hug. Oh and that gorgeous, gorgeous icing dripping over the top…is what dreams are made of. Made into cake form, cinnamon rolls are just beyond. Your loved ones will be talking about how much they adored your crazy delicious, sticky wedding cake for years. (Be sure to provide lots of napkins and maybe even some wet wipes!)
And, there is an added bonus: Cinnamon is not only one of the most delicious spices on the planet, but it is also one of the healthiest. This aromatic spice can lower blood sugar levels, reduce heart disease risk factors, and has a plethora of other impressive health benefits as well. We’re not sure cinnamon bun cakes constitute healthy eating, per se, but at least the cinnamon part is good for you! And they sure make people happy!! And we love that these confections can complement any style wedding with the addition of a bit of decor, like greenery, floral elements, or a cake topper. This absolutely gorgeous layer cake is from Ryke’s Bakery, Catering, and Cafe in Muskegon, Michigan. The photographer is Meg Vankampen Photography in Holland, Michigan.
Heck, you could even have a pan of cinnamon rolls set out on your sweets table and we don’t think you’d get any complaints! Our bet is this would be the first dish cleaned out!
You can also serve other types of yummy cinnamon treats, like churros or cookies, at your event:
