Ingredients

  • 2 cans (17.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Cinnamon Rolls with Original Icing (5 Count) or 2 cans (17.5 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing (5 Count)
  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, if desired
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons caramel topping (from a jar)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 (8-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray. Separate dough into 10 rolls; set icings aside. Place 5 rolls in each pan; press down slightly on rolls to fill most of pan.
  • 2
    Bake 23 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes. Run knife around edges of pans; turn layers upside down onto cooling racks. Cool completely.
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat reserved icings, cream cheese and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and fluffy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat on medium-low speed until frosting is blended and smooth.
  • 4
    Place one layer, top side down, on serving plate. Spread with 1 cup of the cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with half of the pecans. Top with second layer, top side up. Spread with remaining cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with remaining pecans. Drizzle with caramel topping.

  • Pressing down on the cinnamon roll dough in the pan helps the rolls bake together to form layers for your cake.
  • Don’t care for pecans? Leave them out of the recipe, or switch to sliced almonds instead.
  • Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
