CINNAMON ROLL CAKE

I am so sorry I have not shared any recipes on my blog lately.  So, to make up for it I knew I needed to share something reallllly special.
 
Well, this cake it pretty close to perfect!
 
My kitchen smells amazing when it is cooking and you literally can eat it while it is still warm.  In fact, the next day I will pop a piece in the microwave for a few seconds and it tastes just like it came out of the oven. 
 
I made it last year for bunco to announce Chelcie Concienne Barnett's and Ashley Concienne's pregnancies.  We called it "Bun In The Oven" cake.   Definitely bad for my "buns" though!  He He!
 
It is an easy cake to make but make sure you read through the instructions first.

How cute! I have several friends who are pregnant, and I think this Bun in the Oven cake would make their day. :)

Totally Delish! I had to bake the cake a bit longer, so it wasn't too gooey with the added icing. A bit hit with the family! Thanks~
