A friend asked if I could possibly do this for her mom.  From what I see in the thread are pics which look great but there are no details how to do it.  I have a thought of what I can do but I would prefer to have steps instead of wasting time and ingredients.  My friend's mom does not want a cinnamon roll cake rather a cake covered in fondant to look like a cinnamon roll.  Any help I would appreciate? Nothing on google or pinterest I have found either.

There isn't a pic of the cake you are trying to recreate attached to your post.

Look up fire hose cake tutorials. I imagine the same concept would apply to a cinnamon roll cake.

ASorry dukeswalker. Misunderstood. Here's what I saw on the site. [ATTACHMENT=1951]900x900px-LL-a7800937_gallery4713831286203760.jpeg (132k. jpeg file)[/ATTACHMENT]

I saw this on here from someone else but would love a tutorial. Good idea on the fire hose cake. Do you have a tutorial to reference?

I would make a regular cake.  Use the top layer with the cake doomed.  Then I would carve out the trenches that would make it look like a cinammon roll.  Cover with fondant making sure I smooth into the trenches.  Use some dark brown color to paint in the the trenches and the rest is using glaze over the cake.  HTH  You could even add a little cinammon in the groove to make it more realistic.

Funny that was my original thought but i was not sure if it would work. Thanks so much.
