Jumbo Cinnamon Rolls

So, if you follow me closely, then you know that my 6 year old daughter absolutely LOVES to bake! She loves it so much that she started her own YouTube channel to share her baking adventures.

But, she didn’t stop there! What I thought was going to be a phase turned into a real passion. She’s now been baking and setting up at the farmer’s market every weekend! She spends most of Friday preparing and she’s having a blast.

One of her favorite recipes to make is this one! We started out making regular-sized cinnamon rolls, but there’s something about a jumbo cinnamon roll that is just so much more appealing. So, we doubled the size of the rolls and had a great result!

For the glaze, you just want to make sure that it’s not too runny. If it’s too runny, then the glaze will run completely off. You want the glaze to be slightly stiff so that it will stick to the tops (even though it will melt slightly).

When you place them in the pan, don’t let them touch! Doing so will cause them to bake unevenly, with the tops perfect, but the insides still gooey. You want to place them close to each other, but not touching. As they bake, they will rise and touch. That’s perfectly fine!
