*Heads up - you need 8 hours of refrigeration for this recipe, so you'll want to make it at minimum, the night before
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/205 degrees C.
Spray two 9X13 baking pans with non stick cooking spray.
Roll out each package of cinnamon buns as flat as possible and press into bottom of each 9X13 pan. Ensure the cinnamon rolls cover the entire surface of the pan. *You need to roll it onto 2 separate pans, unless you want to bake the layers one at a time
You can do this on a cutting board, then transfer to pan or roll out the buns right in the pan, if you have a smaller rolling pin (this is what I do).
Sprinkle a ½ teaspoon lemon zest evenly over each flattened cinnamon roll layer in each pan.
Bake for 10-13 minutes in preheated oven or until light browned.
While cinnamon roll layers are baking, beat whipping cream to soft peaks.
Remove 1 cup and beat 3 tablespoon icing/powdered sugar into it at soft peak stage, then continue beating to stiff peaks.
Beat remaining whipped cream to stiff peaks and set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and raspberry jam – then fold in the 1 cup whipped cream (with icing sugar/powdered sugar added).
Fold in defrosted and drained raspberries.
When cinnamon bun layers are done baking, remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes. *Don't worry, if they shrink up a bit. Once you get the other ingredients on top the the layers and it sits overnight, it will soften up and spread out.
Gently remove one layer and place on cooling rack.
With a larg spoon, mix remaining whipped cream (about 2 cups) and the icing/frosting (that came with the cinnamon bun packages) together and add vanilla brewed coffee. Set aside.
Assembly: spread cream cheese raspberry mixture over layer of cinnamon buns in pan
Place the other layer of baked cinnamon buns on top of mixture face up
Spread whipped cream/icing mixture overtop of that layer.
Garnish with cinnamon and raspberries and serve.
