Step 13

Every microwave behaves differently. If the roll is undercooked, increment cooking time by 5-second intervals. Do not overcook, it’ll turn the roll hard.

Pour or drizzle glaze on top of cinnamon roll. Remove the roll from the mug and drizzle a generous amount of glaze. Eat it immediately. Resting the roll will tend to turn hard.
