4. While the cinnamon rolls are baking, add 1-2 drops of green food coloring to the separated, 1/4 frosting and stir until it’s completely green. (I used 2 drops for the green pumpkin stem color I achieved.)

5. With the remaining frosting, add 1 drop of red food coloring and 2 drops of yellow. Stir and fold in the food coloring until the mixture is orange.

6. Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven. 



7. Use a small spatula to paint the round, pumpkin-part of the cinnamon rolls orange.

8. With another small spatula, paint the stems of the pumpkin shaped cinnamon rolls green.

9. Serve warm and enjoy!
