Finished Holiday Neighbor Gifts





Here is the finished product for the Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll gift. I will give the rolls to my neighbors frozen and needing to be thawed and raised one more time. The directions on how to rise and bake the rolls is on the back of the decorated lid. The frosting packet can also be frozen inside the pan and removed before baking. I used a disposable decorating bag that I happened to have at home, but a ziploc bag would work as well. The frosting will go down farther in the bag when the tip is cut off and the pressure is released. I was able to get 3 frosting bags out of 1 can of premade frosting. I have several tubs of frosting as I was able to get them last week at Albertson's for $0.34 each. I also sprinkled mine with freshly ground cinnamon. The best part about these gifts is that they can be done now, ahead of the busy holiday season and pulled out when I need them.

Those look amazing. I really like the way you decorated the lids!

These are great! I am going to take your lead & do this for my neighbors. I also like the idea that they can keep them frozen until all the other treats they get go away & they want to eat these.

Thanks!

The look great. They still seem a little pricey if you have a lot of neighbors. How do much do you think one costs?
