release the kracken

P requested a “fish” theme for his birthday. In my internet search for inspiration (yes, I’ve started using Pintrest, my bookmarks were a total mess) I came across Almost Unschoolers’ Squidamon Rolls. I was initially considering making these for his party, but no one likes cold cinnamon rolls, so I decided to make them for his birthday breakfast instead.

I modified my favorite cinnamon sticky bun recipe from Simply Recipes — I used lemon instead of orange, and baked them as free-form octopi for 15 minutes at 375*F. I made a frosting/drizzles from lemon juice, powdered sugar and cream cheese. The end results were a huge success.

Note for next time: use chocolate chips for eyes, the raisins fell off.
