Behind the Old Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls Print
Our newest recipe print recently hit the shop and I wanted to take some time to break down the process, the story, and what I love about it.
To tell you the truth, this recipe is one I've wanted to add to the repertoire for a long time. You know that I am all about classic, familiar desserts that give you that cozy feeling. What evokes that feeling more than a beautiful, delicate, cinnamon roll?
My grandmother, Elaine, absolutely loved a cinnamon dessert. Whether that be in the form of monkey bread (my family called it bubble bread), cinnamon coffee cake, or a simple snickerdoodle, we gobbled them up. Most cinnamon desserts are undeniably wonderful, but something about an old fashioned cinnamon roll is unbeatable.
Now, if you've ever made cinnamon rolls from scratch before, you know that they are pretty involved and taking some good ol' tender loving care. The challenge was finding a way to condense what is a fairly lengthy recipe and process into four concise steps and still making this so cute you want to hang it in your kitchen.
After lots of pencil sketching and re-sketching, I was able to get the process broken down into steps that made sense, but didn't detract from the star of the show in the middle. Trust me, it was a labor of love.
Once that pencil sketch is sort of mapped out and ready, it's time to bust out the watercolors.
The Finished Product(s):
After all the love is poured into the print, a collection was born. The Old Fashioned Cinnamon Roll collection features our standard 8x10 and 11x14 recipe prints, as well as a Mini 5x7 print and one of our best-selling tea towels. I hope these pieces bring you that sweet, comfortable feeling, and that they make your kitchen feel even more at-home for you.
