For the rolls, dissolve yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl.
Add the sugar, margarine, salt, eggs, and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a large bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour or until the dough has doubled in size. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface. Roll until approximately 21 inches long and 16 inches wide. Preheat oven to 400F.
For the filling, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl. Spread the softened margarine evenly over the surface of the dough and then sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar evenly over the surface.
Working carefully from the top (a 21 inch side) roll the dough down to the bottom edge. Cut the rolled dough into 3/4 inch slices and place 6 at a time, evenly spaced, in a lightly greased baking pan.
Bake for 10 minutes or until light brown on top. While the rolls bake, make the icing.
Combine all icing ingredients. Mix well with an electric mixer until fluffy. When the rolls come out of the oven, coat each generously with icing.
