Lovely Cake Batter Sweet Rolls

Anyone ever heard of How Sweet it Is? 

It's a very well known blog - from a girl, Jessica who bakes all kind of glorious treats... she's really creative with food because she loves it... a lot, like A lot - A LOT! Seriously, there isn't anything she hasn't thought of. 

A while back she was baking all kinds of yummy things with cake batter - apparently that was very popular in baking-blogdom for a while, I never really joined the band wagon because we don't have yellow cake batter here in the Netherlands... at least, it's not the same as the yellow cake batter that you can get in the U.S.A.

I vaguely remember contacting her and asking her to make cinnamon rolls with cake batter... seriously I did. Cuz, like I said, I can't bake 'em I don't have the supplies... and finally one day right there in my Google reader I see she did it! She made cinnamon rolls with cake batter - oh my!

Then, finally, after waiting months and months, I and my family made a trip to the old country as I like to call it and I bought myself a box of Funfetti cake mix. Can you believe it only cost $1.00 at good old Wal*mart? Cake mix is cheaper than a loaf of bread!

Crazy, I know. I also got some of that Funfetti frosting to go along with the cake mix... and of course, I never intended on baking cake with it... I always wanted to make these inspirational Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls from Jessica.

She makes her's using the Pioneer Woman's cinnamon roll dough recipe... but I used my BASIC ROLL recipe and I used the store bought Funfetti frosting... very easy!

Before baking - overflowing in melted butter...

After! So colorful - playful - yummyful?!

They were really very good - and an easy way to do up plain cinnamon rolls... Just sprinkle some cake batter in with your cinnamon filling and top off with the Funfetti frosting... I think it's from Betty Crocker?

I'd much rather have this than regular birthday cake... anyday!
