Faux Fabric Cinnamon Buns

It's been awhile since I have made these faux cinnamon buns.  I had a photo of them in my crafts album on Face Book and a FB friend asked me if I still made them as she was interested in purchasing some.
This is a photo of the buns I made for her.  My house smelled like I'd been baking all day!
I made 4 more cinnamon buns and listed them on my website KKL Primitives this morning if anyone is interested. 
My husband was very disappointed when he learned these weren't real.  I may have to go out and buy some Pillsbury, LOL 


  1. Those look almost good enough to eat! How do you make the "icing"?

  2. Man, they look real....I know it sure would
    be a let down, that is for sure! Great job,
    they look so real!

  3. I want to know how you do the icing too, I make these but my icing never looks that good.
    care to share your secrets?

  4. They are amazing! Just want to jump into the computer for a bite:) I love the bunny in your earlier post as well.

    Ah heck, who am I kidding? I love most everything that you create!

  5. Thank you everyone!
    I use the white fabric glue sticks for the icing.
    I haven't tried it yet but I'm told you can also use 1/3 white acrylic paint to 2/3 mod podge glue.

  6. white fabric glue sticks? do you use those in the hot glue gun or are the in a bottle or what? I am confused.

    Thanks hun!

  7. Yes, Angie - they won't fit in the mini glue guns though - you need the 'big' glue guns - the white glue sticks are about 4 inches long and thicker than the mini translucent glue sticks.

  8. Oh I LOVE your cinnamon buns! They look incredibly real!!!!!

    I actually made some real ones yesterday and hubs had to ask if they were real. Yeah, you should have seen his face when I had several batches of faux ones drying in the kitchen... the whole house smelled like I had been baking! What disappointment!
