Vanilla Poppy Seed Cake

I made this recipe up yesterday when we all wanted something sweet to eat but there were no options in the fridge. I was craving a Cinnamon roll so I came up with this. It was so delicious that my family ate the entire cake! (I didn't have cream cheese so I used sour cream which is why my frosting looks thinner in this picture. It tasted great but I prefer cream cheese for a thicker frosting)
