This cinnamon roll-flavored cake is pretty easy+fast to whip together and smells (and tastes) fantastic! This was one of my first attempts making (any) frosted cake from scratch and it turned out great. After making cinnamon rolls/challah/cookies for my boyfriend (who has an unnatural affinity for the spice!), I thought, "why not cake?"Note: feel free to play around with the cinnamon/extract quantities-- I think I actually ended up putting a lot more than what I listed in the recipe, so adjust to taste. I included cinnamon extract as well as the spice, since it is stronger. I added a tiny bit of food coloring to it as well, to make it a very light brown/peach color.
