Can you agree that anything birthday cake and cinnamon roll flavored never tastes bad? I hope so. So when I decided to make these I knew that they were going to be delicious! Now I know it sounds a little weird, birthday cake and cinnamon all in one, but these birthday cake cinnamon rolls are made without any cinnamon. Instead of cinnamon, I crushed up Birthday Cake Magic Spoon cereal and rolled it into the buns! If you do not have this cereal, sprinkles will be just as yummy!

Are these the same as cake batter cinnamon rolls?

Cake batter and birthday cake flavors go hand in hand in my opinion, and regardless of the title they always taste good! I love birthday cake and cake batter ice cream, I find that cake batter is typically always a yellow cake, whereas birthday cake can take on many forms!
