I love making homemade cinnamon rolls, but sometimes I just don’t have the time or energy to make and knead dough, let it rise, make the cinnamon rolls, let them rise again, and bake. You get the idea. With this easy version, all of that work is gone, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy the taste of warm, flaky, homemade cinnamon rolls, and time to do other things with your day!

You’ll also want to make sure you add the cream cheese glaze over the top of the cinnamon rolls. The combination of the two is absolute heaven!

How to Make Mickey Mouse Cinnamon Rolls (the easy way)

How to Store Leftover Cinnamon Rolls

Properly storing your Mickey cinnamon rolls can ensure they stay as fresh and delightful as they were when you first took them out of the oven. For short-term indulgence, keeping them on the countertop in an airtight container will work for a day or two. However, if you’re looking to savor that Disney magic a little longer, place the rolls in an airtight container or tightly wrap them in plastic wrap to keep them fresh for up to a week.

To freeze these cinnamon rolls, wrap them individually in plastic wrap and then store in a ziplock bag. Your Mickey cinnamon rolls can last for up to three months in the freezer. Whenever you’re ready to relive the Disney magic, simply thaw them at room temperature or give them a quick warm-up in the microwave. Remember, the key to maintaining that just-baked taste and texture is ensuring they are sealed off from air exposure to prevent drying out or absorbing other flavors.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use homemade dough instead of refrigerated crescent roll dough for my Mickey cinnamon rolls?

Absolutely! While I love the convenience of pre-made dough for crafting those adorable Mickey-shaped treats, going the homemade route can be just as magical. Whether it’s for a Disney World-themed party or just to bring a little Disneyland joy to your breakfast, homemade dough can elevate your Mickey cinnamon rolls. Just keep an eye on the consistency to ensure it’s pliable enough to shape into those iconic ears.

What if my Mickey cinnamon rolls don’t hold their shape while baking?

Ah, the challenge of achieving that perfect Mickey shape! To ensure your Mickey cinnamon rolls look just like the ones from Magic Kingdom, try chilling the shaped dough for about 15 minutes before baking. This little trick helps them maintain their form. And don’t worry if they’re not perfect—they’ll still disappear faster than you can say “Disney!”

How can I customize my Mickey cinnamon rolls for a special occasion?

The beauty of these Mickey-shaped delights is how easily they can be personalized. Celebrating a birthday? Drizzle them with colored frosting matching the theme. Christmas at Disney is your dream? A sprinkle of red and green sugar before baking adds a festive touch. Your imagination is the limit, and it’s a fun way to create special memories around a classic treat.
