I’ve partnered with Wildgrain to show you this quick and easy fall treat. They sent me a box of their breads and pastries to try out. And since I’m all about the food crafts and ways to make snacks and desserts more playful and fun, I thought I’d share these adorable semi-homemade pumpkin rolls!

My box had breads, croissants, pasta, and pumpkin cinnamon rolls and since I was in the pumpkin spice mood, I reached for the cinnamon rolls and jazzed up them up. They’re perfect for any time in fall from Halloween to Thanksgiving!

And if you want to try a box for yourself, you can use code ABCRAFTY to get $10 off your first box! It has been fantastic to have these fresh breads whenever we want!

Instructions to Make Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Bake the Rolls

This is how my Wildgrain pumpkin cinnamon rolls looked out of the box (here’s where you can get them).

Do not thaw the rolls prior to baking – otherwise the butter will melt and you won’t get the fluffy and flaky texture.

Follow your package instructions, but mine said to pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees farenheit.

Then separate the rolls and put them on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.

Tip: Space them at least 2 inches apart to make sure they don’t touch while baking.

Bake them in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes (lean towards the 20 minute mark if you like them gooey like I do!).

Then leave them to cool. This ensures the frosting won’t melt off the top.

Prepare the Icing

While the cinnamon rolls are baking and cooling, you can prepare the icing.

I was worried when the frosting was frozen, but I squeezed it into a bowl and it defrosted in just a few minutes.

Separate the frosting into two bowls, with most in one bowl and a little bit in the other. Add orange food coloring to the larger amount and green food coloring to the smaller (these are the ones I used). Use a spatula to mix it together.

Transfer the frostings to piping bags or plastic bags. Set them aside until the cinnamon rolls have cooled.

Tip: Place the bag into a cup or bowl. If using a plastic bag, isolate one corner and fold the bag inside out over the bowl or cup. Then pour the icing into the isolated corner. Twist the end of the bag.

Decorate the Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Now it’s time to decorate!

Cut the tips of the bags and use the orange frosting to coat the main part of the cinnamon roll. You can do so however you like, but I liked the whimsical look of following the spiral pattern.

Then with the green frosting, pipe a stem. This was super easy with the Wildgrain rolls since they had a piece sticking out. If yours don’t have that, don’t use as much orange frosting and leave some room at the top for the stem.

Tip: Add extra on the edges so it drips down the side.
