Gooey Cinnamon Cake

This was not a new year's resolution (at least not this year's) . This is the beginning of my food blog. Everything I make, eat, see, love shall find a home in this dwelling. Here goes nothing;

It was my friend's birthday on the 2nd of January .She is a MAJOR fan of Cinnabons.I wasn't gonna be in town, so in order to make up for my absence I made her a Cinnamon cake slightly adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything's  Cinnamon Roll Cake.

The Verdict : It was everything you could want from a cinnamon cake and more. Gooey , delish , cinnamony niceness .Everyone who ate it , loved it. Preferably served hot and fresh or microwaved for half a minute.

Bad photography , but great cake!
