How to Make the TikTok-Famous Cinnamon Rolls with Heavy Cream
Just one more reason to make cinnamon rolls in the morning!
Do you remember having sleepovers at a friend’s house when you were younger and waking up to the wondrous scent of breakfast? No matter whose house I slept at, cinnamon rolls were always hot and ready. Best way to start the morning? Well, yeah. The warm, sweet smell was enough to get me out of bed in a heartbeat.
Now it seems like everyone is baking store-bought cinnamon rolls with heavy cream. Here’s what we know about this breakfast hack!
What Is This TikTok Trend?
This TikTok trend is rumored to make cinnamon rolls even better than before. While I thought it was never possible, I’m willing to give anything a shot at least once. The best part? All you need is one extra step, and you’ll have the softest, most melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon rolls of all time.
You probably already have this secret ingredient in your fridge—it’s heavy cream! Let it soak into the cinnamon rolls while they’re baking to add that extra bit of moistness. You can also use this hack for homemade cinnamon rolls, but you’ve got to remember to make sure it’s warm if your dough is warm so you don’t affect the baking process. Cold heavy cream is perfectly fine for store-bought cinnamon rolls.

What You’ll Need
- 2 packages Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls
- Heavy whipping cream
Step 1: Open the cinnamon rolls
If you’ve made store-bought cinnamon rolls before, you’re already on the right track. Your cinnamon rolls don’t necessarily have to be Pillsbury—you can pick one of our favorite cinnamon roll brands. Place your cinnamon rolls in an oven-safe dish and set aside.
Step 2: Pour on the cream
In @mississippi_kween’s TikTok, she uses a little more than half of a 16-ounce carton of heavy whipping cream to cover her cinnamon rolls. There is no set amount for this process, so use what you feel is best. Make sure each cinnamon roll is covered with heavy whipping cream.
Step 3: Bake as directed
Once you’re satisfied with your arrangement, simply follow the baking instructions on the package. Lean toward the longer amount of time for sufficient baking (she uses the full 27 minutes in the video). You may even need to leave it in longer than the package says if the rolls are not yet baked all the way through.
Step 4: Top with icing
Once your cinnamon rolls are finished, pull them from the oven. They should be a fluffy, warm consistency. Don’t forget the icing!
