  10. Cut the roll into slices & place them in a greased baking tray.
  11. Allow to rise for half an hour.
  12. Preheat oven to 180c.
  13. Bake foe 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  14. Meanwhile prepare the icing by beating together all the ingredients in a bowl with a electric whisk until it is light & fluffy.
  15. As soon as the cinnabons are out of the oven, spread the icing whilst they are still hot! Serve hot & enjoy!
