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.

Cinnamon Roll Layer Cake

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!

Cinnamon Bun Layered Cake



  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup light almond milk (buttermilk will work too!)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 packet instant yeast
  • 2½ cups all purpose flour
  • for filling:
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2-4 tbsp cinnamon, to taste


  • 16 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream

Ah, you’ll have to visit Public Lives, Secret Recipes for the instructions, but obviously that will be something you’ll want to do, since I’m betting this cake is now on your holiday to-make list, too.
