This is the best and easiest glaze and one that I use all the time for my Kittencal's Jumbo Cinnamon Buns/Rolls and my Kittencal's 5-Minute Cinnamon Flop Brunch Cake --- just three ingredients to create the perfect creamy glaze, for the best creamy taste and texture I strongly suggest to use only whipping cream --- change the flavor by using different flavors of extract, you can also add in food coloring

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups powdered sugar, sifted (please sift to remove any small lumps)
  • 14 cup whipping cream (any amount to desired texture start with 1/4 cup, or use 18% table cream)
  • 1 12 teaspoons vanilla extract or 1 12 teaspoons almond extract


  1. Whisk all ingredients in a bowl adding whipping cream until desired texture is achieved (do not make it to thin, or it won't stick on cakes!).

Call me crazy, but I didn't have any whipping cream, so I used 1/8 c vanilla cinnamon creme coffee mate (was making cinnamon flop) and 1/8c milk and left out the vanilla. Tastes great!

Yummy! Made it for your Cinnamon Flop Cake. I didn't have whipping cream so I subbed plain milk and melted butter. Great flavor, thanks!

I made a half-batach to use on Kittencal's Easy Cinnamon Flop. I've found that applying the glaze while still warm tends to make it glisten...a very appealing look! Oh, don't forget to lick the bowl afterwards...yum!
