Really good icing for cinnamon buns. This recipes makes enough to cover 20 large rolls. You may want to divide it if you don't need so much.

This was just Ok. The sweetness overpower the cream cheesey taste that I had hoped for. Not bad if you really like sweet with a hint of cream cheese. Read More

YUMMY!! I needed some extra icing for those refrigerated cinnamon rolls (they never come with enough icing for me) and this was great. I didn't add the milk and cut the recipe in half, cause I didn't have that many rolls. Very quick indeed. Thanks Lisa. Read More

I cut this in half and used butter instead of margerine and used a full teaspoon of vanilla. This worked out perfectly. Half a recipe was just right for twelve cinnamon rolls.....maybe just a touch overkill but the family will love that.;) Read More

I used this as the frosting for my pizza parlor cinnamon bread sticks. Super easy and very delicious. EDIT: I had some leftover from this and used it to dip strawberries. It was wonderful. I bet it would taste good with other fruit as well. Read More
