Cinnamon Roll Cake {Recipe}

Want to get your fill of breath-taking photography?  Head over to Ann’s blog – On Sutton Place.  I don’t know her, but I love her.   And I want to eat at her house every morning, noon, and night, oh and snacks too.  And if she could host me for a happy hour, I would happily and graciously oblige.

She’s sharing a gorgeous recipe for Cinnamon Roll Cake.  She admits she found it on Pinterest here, but I am in make-believe land where she humbly made this one up from scratch one early morning.  And then she invited me to eat it with her.  Once again, I love her.
