Can I use homemade cinnamon rolls instead of canned?

While canned cinnamon rolls provide convenience, you can certainly use homemade cinnamon rolls if you prefer. Simply adjust the baking time accordingly to ensure they are fully cooked through.

Can I make this dessert ahead of time?

While this dessert is best served warm from the oven, you can prepare it ahead of time and reheat it before serving. Simply assemble the dish as instructed, cover it tightly with foil, and refrigerate until ready to bake. Allow it to come to room temperature before baking, or add a few extra minutes to the baking time if baking it straight from the refrigerator.
