The easy way to make cinnamon buns that taste way more delicious than Cinnabon

Nothing beats the smell of cinnamon buns. I can smell them from a mile away, and as soon as I do, I find myself unable to resist the temptation to walk right over and buy a whole tray of them.

But the truth is, bakeries need to make a profit, and they often cut corners on ingredients. And I guess that’s why homemade cinnamon buns taste so much better.

The only problem is that my cinnamon buns often turn out looking less than perfect. It’s almost impossible to cut them into individual pieces without crushing them and ruining their shape.

So when I saw this recipe, I was thrilled. Not only does the recipe use the best ingredients and make amazing cinnamons, it also includes a trick to make them look as good as store-bought ones.

I’ve never seen it before, but it’s so clever that I wanted to share it with all of you out there who love to bake.

Check it out!
