Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes
This great idea came from the 'Creative Cupcake Genius' over at Hoosier Homemade. For Cupcake Tuesday she made cinnamon roll cupcakes and I thought "what a great idea!" So, I pulled out my cinnamon roll recipe and away I went! These are definitely going on my holiday menu at SugarBeams, I think they would be a great present to have delivered to someone on Christmas Eve!
