When slicing your log into cinnamon scrolls, the type of knife to use should be a serrated knife (ie. a knife that looks a bit like a saw used for cutting bread). But honestly, dental floss is by far the best way to obtain perfectly round slices without squashing them!
Just make sure the dental floss you purchase is the unscented kind.
#Baking hack: How to cut dough using dental floss:
