    Make the Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes:

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  
    2
    Grease a 12-cup nonstick muffin/cupcake pan.

    Trim crusts from bread. Arrange bread slices on large cutting board.

    Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.  
    5
    Spread each bread slice with butter. 
    6
    Evenly sprinkle cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of buttered bread slices. 
    7
    Stack 2 bread slices together with cinnamon-sugar sides facing each other. Repeat to make a total of 5 sandwiches.

    Using a serrated knife, gently cut each bread stack into 8 to 10 strips, then cut each strip crosswise in half.

    Use a knife to loosen the edges of the cupcakes, and then carefully invert muffin pan to release cupcakes onto a platter.
