Evenly drizzle the icing to all the cinnamon buns. ENJOY!* Another option is to lightly sift 1/4 cup of granulated sugar to the 24 rolls.

 

 

 

One day I was browsing through my instagram feed and came across home baked cinnamon rolls. Obsession became an understatement so I had to make my own vegan version. It wasn’t bad for my first run around. The experience was fun. I’m not a huge fan of drowning things with icing, so I made it minimal. Let’s just say that all 24 rolls were gone by day 3. I gave  rolls to my parents and brother, but still… it was gone fast!
