  • Step One: Blend Cream Cheese and Confectioners’ Sugar
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar. The paddle attachment on the electric mixer will help it achieve a thick consistency.
  • Step Two: Add the Milk
  • Add the milk to the cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar mixture. Mix until the frosting reaches a smooth and thick consistency.
  • Spread the frosting on the cinnamon rolls while they are still warm. This allows for the frosting to melt some on the cinnamon rolls and gives it a delicious taste.
  • Store the remaining frosting in the fridge for up to one week. You may also store it in the freezer for at least a month.

  • If you want to try something a bit different, you can add one-fourth cup of maple syrup to your cream cheese frosting. This gives the frosting a nice maple flavor that compliments the cinnamon rolls. The maple flavor goes well with the cinnamon and creates the perfect sweet taste.
  • Orange is also a popular flavor to add to cream cheese frosting. Adding up to two teaspoons of orange zest to your frosting a fresh and fruity flavor. Orange is a popular addition to cream cheese frosting as it helps elevates the flavor and gives it a zesty taste.
