Whoa. Whoa. For today’s recipe, I bring you – via the lovely and talented Caitlin, of Public Lives, Secret Recipes – the most fabulous-looking Cinnamon Bun Layered Cake the internet has ever laid eyes upon.

No – your eyes do not deceive you. That’s a whole lotta cream cheese frosting in the middle there. And on top – let’s not forget the frosting on the top. Whoa. I mean, obviously I won’t be making this without help from people who know what they’re doing, but I think it’s safe to assume this is a schedule-clearing cake that needs to be made asap. You know, to test out, before I make another…and another.

Thanks again to Caitlin, who kindly volunteered to have one of her recipes features on D@MD’s salute to the best recipes of the holidaze!

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but the crockpot is the single greatest invention for lazy cooks – hands down, case closed. If you have the capability to purchase ingredients, unwrap them and dump them into a circular heating vessel, you sound like you’d be a whiz at crockpot cooking.

I’ve used my own crockpot for hundreds of lazy meals, but the one thing I’ve really not used it for is baked goods. Well, this might all have to change, because this recipe looks super easy and delicious. It takes pre-made tubes of cinnamon rolls, which are obviously a base of deliciousness.
