Cinnamon Buns with White Fondant Glaze


Sticky Buns with Caramel Glaze

Cinnamon buns with surface topping are "bready". The key is not to overbake, nor add too much flour. Supple and tacky are the keywords.  Sticky buns with caramel glaze are "gooey". Additional butter and sugar caramelizes and saturates these sticky buns to produce the gooey factor.
