Birthday Cake "Cinnamon" Rolls

Sprinkles and a double sugar mixture make these "cinnamon" rolls extra special! They have a thick layer of buttercream frosting on top and all of the birthday cake flavors one could want in a gluten free "cinnamon" roll!

There are few treats I like better than a good cinnamon roll, and these birthday cake "cinnamon" rolls are so perfectly delicious and fun! Make them for a birthday breakfast, or for a treat any day, and your family is sure to love them.

Birthday Cake "Cinnamon" Rolls

  • 2 Tablespoons Butter 
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar 
  • 2/3 Cup of warm Milk 
  • 1 Tablespoon Yeast 
  • 1 Flax-Egg (directions on side of blog)
  • 1/4 Cup Canola Oil 
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
  • 1/2 Cup Potato Starch 
  • 1 Cup Corn Starch 
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons Xantham Gum 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt 
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder 
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar 
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar 
  • 2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
  • Sprinkles 
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the butter and sugar. 
  3. Heat your milk, not too hot but warm enough to activate yeast, and add in the yeast. Whisk together until dissolved. 
  4. Add the milk/yeast mixture to the sugar and stir together. Add the flaxegg, oil and vanilla, and mix again. 
  5. Add all of the dry ingredients and mix well to combine, removing all lumps (expect the dough to be pretty soft/sticky). 
  6. Sprinkle a big sheet of plastic wrap with sugar and plop dough out onto it. Add a second layer of plastic wrap and roll dough out between them, making roughly a 13" by 13" square. 
  7. Mix together the white sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. 
  8. Remove top layer of wrap and sprinkle sugar/vanilla mixture over dough. Shake on the sprinkles. Then, lifting up an edge of the plastic wrap to help you, roll the dough. Cut with a knife and place in a greased pan (I usually bake mine in a 9x13 and they all fit). 
  9. Bake for about 20 minutes (until tops are lightly browned), and frost when slightly cooled.
Buttercream Frosting
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter 
  • 1 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar 
  • 2 Tablespoons Milk 
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt 
  1. Cream butter in your mixer. 
  2. Add the powdered sugar to the butter and beat until combined. 
  3. Add the milk, vanilla and salt, and beat for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
