For this recipe, you do not make the crosses on the buns with icing. Instead, you use the more traditional method of making a sweetened flour paste which is then piped over the buns to create the crosses before baking.
These were a great hit with the family and they were gone within 24 hours of being baked.
- Probably nothing ...except maybe try lemon peel instead of candied lemon.
- I might try converting the recipe to sourdough as well, just to see how that impacts the flavor profile. I find that sourdough generally goes very well with sweet breads of all kinds
