One of my favorite new desserts to make is the Cinnamon Roll Poke Cake with Pillsbury Cinnabon Grands Cinnamon Rolls and Pillsbury Butter Cream Icing.

I made a vanilla pudding from scratch, but most of the cake was made without any fuss or stress. You can also purchase your own prepackaged pudding and icing to really cut down the possibility of mistakes.

Follow the directions on the tube. Expect the add a few extra minutes since you are making more than 1 tube.

While the cinnamon rolls bake, make the pudding.

Let the pudding cool.

Pour Pudding on Top

Once the Cinnamon Rolls are done, take them out and let the cool.

Once the pudding and the cinnamon buns are cool, poke a hole in each once of the cinnamon roll rounds.

Pour the pudding over the cinnamon buns making sure the pudding sinks into the hole you just made.

Allow the pudding to sink into the cake for at least 2 hours in fridge covered with clear wrap.

While the pudding sinks into the cake, make the Pillsbury Butter Cream Frosting following the directions on the packages using 2 Packages Pillsbury Butter Cream Icing, 2 Sticks of Butter, softened, and 1/2 Cup Water.

Whip together the butter and powder first on a low setting. Then, add in the water and crank it up.
