Yummy! I made 3 cups of icing for two 13 x 9 pans of Cinnamon Potato Rolls and it was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I should of known how to make this, I was absolutely stressed to the max, and I needed a special icing to ice my cinnamon/raisin bread I made for a Holiday gift. I sat down, and typed in Cinnamon Bun Icing, and this wonderful recipe popped up. I had everything on hand, (which by itself was a miracle - because I typically am out of "something") and made this more then delightful recipe, and it does taste like the Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns! Oh thank you, Heather! You have saved the day! Winter 2008.

I glazed Grammie Bea's Old Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls with this icing and it was awesome. The rolls are great as is, but the icing just adds that little something extra. I added in about 1 tsp. cinnamon, just to give it more flavor. I will use this again often!!! Thanks!

Just like the one you get with Pilsbury Cinnamon Rolls, make sure to mix powdered sugar well to remove any clumps and keep grittiness down.

Excellent and quick. I made Overnight Cinnamon Rolls for a work luncheon, and needed icing but didn't have any cream cheese. I made this icing and it was great. The cinnamon roll pan came home empty. (the only change I made was I used 2% milk instead of cream - it worked great)

Talk about a kid pleaser! I thought I'd have to use butter and a mixer to make a good icing for cinnamon buns but this recipe is really, really good. I increased the recipe without having to measure anything, used a bit of vanilla extract, omitted the salt and used half-and-half as called for. Getting the right consistency is key...not too thin and almost dropping from the spoon in globs. Love it!

Very easy and great on cinnamon buns. I ended up using about 6 Tbs on Heavy cream in order to get the right consistency, but it tastes great.
