Hi everyone!
I am a new member and I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I am getting married in September 2012 and my good friend is making our wedding cake. We really want our cake to taste exactly like your biting into a cinnamon bun with cream cheese frosting. Yummy! hehe I was wondering if someone has a recipe for this, but the catch is that I would like the base of the recipe to be a box cake mix..! The reason for this is that I don't want to overwhelm my friend by asking her to make a huge four tier wedding cake from scratch.
I am open for any suggestions!

If you go to the recipe section there are some listed that start with yellow or white cake mixes. DH even has a cinnamon cake mix.Best wishes!

Try the Vanilla WASC recipe and substitute Cinnamon Bun coffee creamer for the vanilla creamer, perhaps cinnamon extract instead of vanilla and cinnamon bun yogurt(if u can find it)instead of vanilla.

I just googled and got a few hits. You will have to experiment in the next 11 months to see which one works for you. Here is one. You will have to make sure that whatever recipe you use is stable enough to cover and stack.

If someone gives you a really good scratch cake recipe, i would concider trying it out. There are lots of scratch recipes out there that are not complicated and I don't find them that much more work. Plus you have time to experiment.

You can mix 1/3 cup of brown sugar w/ 2 tsp. of cinnamon and swirl it into the batter before putting it in the pan.

I will add one more option - powdered flavoring that can be added to any mix or scratch recipe without affecting the consistency. I met these folks at ICES Convention in Charlotte and purchased a couple of their flavors - great product with wonderful, natural flavor. They just came out with a bunch of new flavors, one of which is Cinnamon Bun. Check out
