A simple can of cinnamon rolls can be very boring but the people of Tiktok have found a better way to doctor them up! This hack was discovered by @mississppiqueen and @mantha from that app. No more boring cinnamon rolls from a can!
Why add the heavy cream?
Some heavy cream gets poured into the bottom of the pan and while the rolls are baking in the oven the heavy cream will be absorbed into the dough. In the videos I've seen, there really is no set amount of heavy cream used. It just gets poured until the cream is covering all the rolls.
Brown Sugar and Butter Topping
When making a batch of regular cinnamon rolls from scratch, usually the brown sugar and butter mixture is spread on top of the dough. Instead, this mixture just gets poured over the top of the already made buns. Pretty easy peasy.
Some accounts only use the heavy cream on the bottom of the pan but I think the brown sugar and melted butter give it a little something extra.
What Ingredients do I need for Cinnamon Rolls?
In this section, you can find substitutes or suggestions for certain check here
Canned Cinnamon Rolls - Depending on the amount of cinnamon rolls you need and how much people you plan on feeding get whatever size can you need. For two servings usually the 5 count cinnamon roll can is fine.
Heavy Cream - The videos I’ve seen on Tiktok really have no set amount of heavy cream that needs to be used. They just pour it on the bottom of the pan until it’s completely covered.
Butter - I usually get unsalted butter to control the amount of salt used. Melt it in the microwave.
Brown Sugar - the only type of sugar to use for cinnamon rolls!

yes just assemble and bake in the morning!
can I make these up the night before and bake in the morning?
Yeah just use less next time. Some of the videos I see online don't really measure or list the amount of cream they use.
Pretty good. Although I think the proportions are off. 1 pint of heavy cream for 5 cinnamon rolls is way too much. I used half that amount, cooked it 10 minutes longer and it was still really soupy. Yummy, but didn’t get the caramelization it would have with less liquid. Now I know for next time: )
