Cinnamon Roll Funfetti Cake Recipe


IMPORTANT: 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. 

✔ 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.

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.

  • 2 (17.5 oz.) cans Pillsbury® Cinnamon Rolls with Icing
  • 1 (15.25 oz.) box funfetti cake mix, dry and divided
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 icing packets included with cinnamon roll dough
  • 1/4 cup funfetti cake mix
  • sprinkles, for topping



PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Spray 9-inch pie dish with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of Funfetti Cake Mix on to bottom on the pie dish. Set aside.

STEP 1: Remove cinnamon roll dough from can. Unroll and separate dough into two rectangles.

STEP 2: Place unsalted butter In a small microwavable bowl, and microwave for 30 seconds or until melted. Brush melted butter over cinnamon roll dough.

STEP 3: Sprinkle 3/4 cup of dry funfetti cake mix over top of the dough. Separate each dough strip.

STEP 4: Roll up one of the dough strips like you would a regular cinnamon roll and place it in the center of the prepared pie dish. Next, take another dough strip and press the end of the first dough strip to one end of the second dough strip, wrap the second dough strip around the cinnamon roll in the center. Repeat this step with the rest of the dough strips to create one large cinnamon roll.

STEP 5: Sprinkle with additional funfetti cake mix. Bake for 18 minutes or until top is lightly brown. Let cool for 3 minutes before frosting.


STEP 6: In a medium sized bowl, mix together both frosting packets that were included with the cinnamon roll dough and 1/4 cup of funfetti cake mix until combined.

STEP 7: Drizzle frosting over warm cinnamon roll cake and sprinkle with colored sprinkles. Cut into triangle pieces and enjoy warm.

    Can this be prepared the night before?

      Chelsea, yes I often prepare this cinnamon roll funfetti cake the night before. Enjoy! 🙂

  5. Lindsay Morgan — October 11, 2014 at 3:36 pm

    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 🙂

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — October 13th, 2014 @ 9:31 am

      Awesome tip, Lindsay! Thanks for sharing, I hope you enjoyed Cinnamon Roll Funfetti Cake recipe! 🙂

  6. Bridget G — September 19, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    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.

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — September 22nd, 2014 @ 9:21 am

      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! 🙂 🙂

    They’re in a can too.

  8. Shelly S — August 14, 2014 at 11:18 am

    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. Shelly S — August 14, 2014 at 10:36 am

    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?

    • Jenn Kurkiewicz — August 14th, 2014 @ 10:58 am

      Hi Shelly,

      What kind of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls did you buy? I used the Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with Icing in the can.
