Cut the log into 12 slices and place them in a well-greased 9 x 13-inch pan. Covering with plastic wrap also place in the refrigerator.
Add the 1/2 cup powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to the reserved cream cheese mixture. Beat until smooth, adding enough milk to make a thin glaze. Then place the frosting in a ziplock bag in the fridge.

Remove rolls and bag of frosting from refrigerator. Place the rolls in a warm place and let them rise until doubled (about an hour).

Cut a corner in the ziplock bag and glaze the rolls while still warm.
