Making Cinnamon Rolls with Jerilyn Brusseau, Cinnabon Co-Creator

Join the co-creator of Cinnabon, Jerilyn Brusseau, for a fun day of learning to bake her grandmother’s cinnamon rolls in your own home with seven of your friends.

Jerilyn grew up making these special rolls with her grandmother, who baked pies for the local restaurants in her small Montana town. In 1978, these melt in your mouth cinnamon rolls set the stage for Jerilyn opening Brusseau’s Bakery in downtown Edmonds.

She had no idea this mysterious cinnamon roll project would become a national and global brand with 1,200 franchised locations in 48 countries. Or that people would still ask for her autograph nearly four decades later.

This magical event will occur on a mutually agreeable date and time at your home in King or Snohomish County. Two ovens needed. Expires 2/29/24. Value: Priceless.
