Sweet Mornings – Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Grand Marnier Icing

Over the weekend I made homemade cinnamon rolls. I followed Paula Dean’s recipe, which is really incredible! It’s a little time consuming because the bread needs to have time to rise, but other than that it’s very easy to follow and there is a video that walks you through each step. I also added 2 1/2 teaspoons of Grand Marnier to the icing to spruce it up a bit… All I can say is YUM!! I thought this would be the perfect treat to make for mom come Mother’s Day, May 13th. We also created the charming “homemade for mom” flags that you can download here! There are three sizes to choose from and you can use them for any dessert you make this Mother’s Day. I cut one out and then hot-glued two wooden kabob sticks to the back : ) Serve these treats with a tall glass of fresh-squeezed orange juice and I think you’ll have one happy mama!
