Homemade Confetti Cinnamon Rolls

Homemade Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls

These is nothing better then waking up to Homemade Confetti Cinnamon Rolls. SPRINKLES in the morning, always make for a great start to my day.

These rolls are so tender, soft, fluffy and filled with a delicious funfetti cinnamon filling which takes the classic homemade cinnamon roll to the next level. I made these cinnamon rolls with my favorite Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast. I highly suggest this yeast as it significantly cuts down on waiting/rising time and if you ever made homemade cinnamon rolls before you know that the “hardest” part about making them is the waiting/rising time.

And because confetti and SPRINKLES always means a celebration, I have teamed up with some of my awesome blogging friends to giveaway a $400 Amazon Gift Card. Now that’s a reason to celebrate….enter to win at the bottom of this post!

Homemade Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✔ I highly recommend using Fleischmann’s® RapidRise Yeast. This will cut down your rise time, which means you will be able to enjoy these Homemade Confetti Cinnamon Rolls a lot sooner!

I like to line my 13 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper. This makes it super easy to remove the cinnamon rolls from the pan, making it easy to pull each cinnamon roll apart to enjoy!

 For the vanilla icing, I highly recommend using heavy whipping cream or half and half because it gives the frosting it’s creamy texture. If you don’t have heavy whipping cream or half and half you can use milk but just know that the frosting might not be as creamy.

      If you don’t want to use funfetti cake mix, you could use yellow cake mix instead!
