When it comes to desserts, I have many loves…and while it can be hard to narrow it down, I can confidently say that I’m crazy for Cinnamon Rolls and for Funtetti Cake. And just like that, I knew the next dessert recipe that I had to create. Get ready to love one of my most epic recipes ever…Treat your taste buds to this delicious Cinnamon Roll Funfetti Cake. It’s seriously one of the best desserts that you’ll taste.


Think about what you love about cinnamon rolls…the taste of cinnamon and the sweet, sweet glaze, right? Now take those loves and pair it perfectly with Funfetti cake. It’s a match made in dessert heaven.


What I love most about this treat is that I see it as perfectly okay to eat at breakfast, or after lunch AND dinner. In my mind, when I eat it at breakfast, it’s a moist and delicious cinnamon roll and when I eat if after any other meal, it’s an amazing dessert.

Cinnamon Roll Funfetti Cake Recipe



CINNAMON ROLLS: Make sure to buy the refrigerated flacky cinnamon rolls with icing or the flacky cinnamon twists because these are the ones that you can unroll and separate each dough strip. The other kinds of cinnamon roll dough, you will not be able to unroll the dough. 


BEFORE YOU START: Make sure to spray your pie dish or round cake pan with a generous amount of non-stick cooking spray. I also sprinkled a little bit of funfetti cake mix onto the bottom of the pie dish, this will help make it easier to cut cinnamon roll cake into slices.


PERFECT FOR ANY OCCASION: I have made this cinnamon roll funfetti cake for many occasions. I just switched up the sprinkles on top of the icing. For Christmas I added Christmas colored sprinkles for a fun Christmas morning breakfast.

  4. Can this be prepared the night before? 

  5. Mine didn’t unroll either. But I just flattened them with a rolling pin and cut them into strips. So try that if you can’t unroll them 🙂

  6. I absolutely love this idea!  One thing though.  Should I separate and smooth out the dough in the sixth step?  It looks like you did it before it was baked, but you did not leave any instructions to do so, so I was just wondering.

    • Hi Bridget,

      In Step 6, I didn’t separate or smooth out the dough…but I did sprinkle some funfettii cake mix over top of the completed cinnamon roll cake before I bake it. Let me know if you have any additional questions and enjoy! 🙂 🙂

  7. They’re in a can too.

  8. Wow!  That was fast!  I bought Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls Cinnabon with Icing.  They are just round circles of dough.  Not something that can be unrolled.  

  9. Tried to make this for breakfast this morning, but the Pillsbury rolls I bought are not in dough form that can be rolled out.  Is there a certain kind of cinnamon rolls that work?
