Ok, so today I’m walking through work and I smell the wonderful aroma of a cinnamon roll. That bliss of cinnamon, brown sugar, and that oh so glorious frosting. Which got me thinking about cinnamon rolls and the best one I ever had. First I thought of the cinnamon rolls from the Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Then I thought of the ultimate cinnamon roll, the cinnamon roll to end all cinnamon rolls, the coveted Sticky Mickey from the now defunct Concourse Grill at the Walt Disney World’s Contemporary Resort. It was a mound of cinnamon roll goodness. Don’t believe me, just look!
Hopefully one day they will wise up and bring it back and my wife and I can go to WDW and have it again. In the meantime, at least Disney was kind enough to send me the recipe, which I have pasted in below. Great, now my stomach is growling!
