  8. Take the last dark strip and wrap it around the cinnamon roll to hide the ends. Hot glue in place.
     
  9. With your thumb, carefully push up on the center of the cinnamon roll to make it look like it has risen in the oven. A little pop is all you need!

Let me see how many things I can do with these cute little cinnamon rolls that looks so real that they look good enough to eat. This will be a great gift to add to their food collection. Maybe make a little bake shop box to put them in so they can pretend to go to a bakery. Put on a homemade felt plate and use as a centerpiece. So simple and easy to make and a great project for the whole family.
