I love when the seasons change! It begins with the time change and what seems like “extra daylight” just makes me happy. Then the snow melts and the sun seems to make the days seem even longer. We get a crazy burst of warm weather and my kids are outside when I realize it’s 7pm and we haven’t even had dinner! The changing seasons are really enjoyed by all!

One of my favorite things to do in spring is make fun and colorful recipes at home! This time I took the semi-homemade route and made a cinnamon roll flower for us to enjoy one sunny Sunday morning! These would be perfect for an Easter or Mother’s Day brunch, too!

My kids love it when I make these flowers because they enjoy adding sprinkles or mini chocolate chips to the center! And for some reason they always save that cinnamon roll for their dad!

Divide your icing into small bowls and tint with food coloring. I like using soft gel paste to color my icing as it gives vibrant colors and doesn’t thin the icing.
