What is the best Cinnamon Roll Icing?

With this recipe, you are making a basic sugar glaze. This is made using 3 ingredients, vanilla, milk, and powdered sugar. You can also make a cream cheese glaze for your cinnamon rolls. Another option is to use store bought cream cheese frosting. You can use it as it for a thick and creamy icing or you can thin it out using milk.

Can I Freeze Cake Mix Cinnamon Rolls

Just like regular cinnamon rolls and cakes, you can freeze these cake mix cinnamon rolls. Once the cinnamon rolls have cooled, you can more then to an airtight container. You can also use a freezer bag. I prefer to cut the cinnamon rolls into slices so that it is easier to take one piece out at a time instead of having to thaw the entire batch. I also like to freeze the cake mix cinnamon rolls before it goes into the container. I put them on a plate to let them freeze before moving them to the container. This lets the icing set and keeps the slices from sticking to each other.
