Serving Up {Breakfast}: Cinnamon Roll Frosting

It has been a busy week!  I know, I know....I am probably singing to the choir but sometimes it hits me harder than others and this week it was driving a semi-trailer!  All I really want to do is sit down, put my feet up and indulge in something sweet and delicious.  Sadly, there is nothing sweet and delicious currently at my disposal and I am a bit bummed!  But my kids will be grateful for my mood come Sunday morning cause we are making ourselves some homemade cinnamon rolls and momma is indulging her craving!

This weekend, our church broadcasts a worldwide meeting that allows us to listen to our church leaders - it's called General Conference.  It happens twice a year (April & October) and it is really and truly my favorite two weekends of the year...and not just cause I get to "watch church" in my pajamas and eat cinnamon rolls.  The messages are always uplifting and inspiring - something I could really use after this past week.  If you are interested in watching along, click here or here and watch along with me....there are broadcasts at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. (MDT) on Oct 5th & 6th.

Since I am going to be indulging in some delicious cinnamon roll goodness, I thought it only right of me to pass along my favorite tip for frosting cinnamon rolls - no matter what recipe for the rolls you swear by.  Here is the tip - when you make the frosting, replace the milk you would normally use with Cinnabon flavored International Delight Coffee Creamer.  The flavor is subtle but subtly delicious!  Promise me you will try it and I will promise to post the recipe that caused me to buy Cinnabon flavored Internation Delight Coffee Creamer in the first place.  Yum!

One Year Ago: No-Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies
Two Year's Ago: Pear Pecan Muffins


1/2 cup butter, softened
2-3 cups powdered sugar
1 /4 cup Cinnabon flavored International Delight Coffee Creamer
pinch salt

Place butter in a medium bowl and beat until smooth.  Add a pinch of salt and then gradually add the powdered sugar, alternately with flavored coffee creamer until desired, spreadable consistency is reached.


  1. Sounds delicious...thanks for the recipe, Katherine!

  2. I'm making cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning too! I need to get to the store and find some of this stuff today! Thanks!
