Floss Your Rolls

A quick tip for making pretty cinnamon rolls:  don’t slice them, floss them!  Using unflavored waxed dental floss, slide the floss under the rolls.


Bring the ends of the floss up, cross and pull.


No more squishy rolls!


Pretty, right?  She sure thought so…

  1. Enjoyer of the Journey says:

    What a great idea!!

  2. those look yummy! My homemade cinnamon rolls never turn out that good. Probably cause I have the same problem with them as I do my homemade biscuits….I always roll them out too thin. LOL!

  3. This is so funny. I just had a lady tell me about how she flosses her cakes when they are uneven. Thanks for the tips.

  4. I want to try that idea sometime. I had to laugh at the picture of the little girl who got into the rolls. She doesn’t look one bit sorry for doing it!

  5. Have I ever told you that you do an AWESOME job blogging? 🙂

  6. The last time I did rolls I used floss and my hubby thought I was funny for using it! However, I showed him how well it worked compared to a knife and he didn’t laugh at me anymore. 😀

    Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Btw, those rolls look yummy! 🙂

  7. I have never thought of doing that but I love the idea! I’m definitely going to try that next time. My cinnamon rolls do tend to get smushed when I got them. And yours look SO beautiful! What recipe do you use?

  8. The picture of your daughter with food all over her face is so adorable =) My son still looks like that after eating every time, but he’s 5 so it’s not so cute anymore.

  9. I have done this as well, but I must say, that my cinnamon rolls do not look as fabulous as yours!

  10. OK. That’s way cool. Now I have to actually make some cinnamon rolls!


  11. I hadn’t thought about floss. But, have used thread.

    Thanks for sharing!


  12. Someone taught me to do that when I first got married 18 years ago. I have been doing it ever since. Great tip!
