Cinnamon roll sheet cake!

Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake Vertical 1 Using vanilla cake mix (or white or yellow, whatever you have on hand) as the base of our sheet cake, we added vanilla instant pudding mix for extra flavor, sour cream to make sure it stayed extra moist, and then a perfectly delightful cinnamon brown sugar mixture to swirl into the batter. Pro tip: be careful not to over-mix your cinnamon filling into the batter; you want a defined, marbleized look, and over-stirring can make your cake look muddy, which we don’t want. Once you’ve got the batter all taken care of, the other real show stopper is the cream cheese frosting. Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake Horizontal 9Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake Vertical 4 That’s right.
