  1. Separate rolls and cut in half. Place on a greased baking sheet with cinnamon side up and curved edges touching to form wings. Cut cherries into six wedges; place three on each wing. Bake at 400° for 13-17 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Stir icing until smooth; place in a pastry bag with a round tip (or in a small heavy-duty resealable plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner). Pipe icing to outline the wings.
