How cute are these bunny-shaped cinnamon rolls?!! 😍

Aaaaaaand……. store-bought cinnamon roll dough makes them EASY. 🙌 You basically unwind a roll, split it in half, and re-shape those 2 pieces to form the bunny. (So you get a full bunny out of each roll!)

Serve these up at Easter brunch, a bunny birthday party, OR as a fun breakfast surprise any ol’ day of the week. 💛

Cinnamon Roll Bunnies



  • cinnamon roll dough (a refrigerated tube with icing)
  • candy icing flower (optional)
  • gold star sprinkles (optional)
  • food coloring (optional)


  • baking sheet
  • cooking spray
  • cutting board
  • kitchen shears or paring knife
  • Ziplock sandwich bag (for icing)


1. Spray baking sheet & preheat oven according to package instructions.

2. Unwind one cinnamon roll and split it into 2 equal pieces.

3. Re-roll one of the pieces (the one that does not contain the cinnamon roll “center”) into a spiral shape to form the bunny’s body.

4. Pinch off a small bit of dough from the 2nd piece and roll that into a ball for the bunny’s tail.

5. Shape the remaining dough from the 2nd piece into the bunny’s head. To form the bunny’s ears, make a horizontal cut (around 1 – 1.5″ long) into the end of the dough and spread the “ears” out with your fingers.

6. Assemble the 3 dough pieces – head, body, and tail – together to form the bunny, then transfer it to your baking sheet.

7. Repeat with the rest of your cinnamon rolls!

8. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

9. Tint the icing w/ food coloring (if desired). Spoon icing into a ziplock bag & snip off the corner for piping.

10. Remove bunny rolls from the oven.

11. Pip the icing onto the hot cinnamon rolls.

12. Optional: Place an icing flower on each bunny’s ear and sprinkle with edible gold stars.
