Add another layer of dough balls and butter mixture and repeat this process until you have used them all. Bake the unicorn monkey bread for 30 to 35 minutes or until it turns golden brown on top.

If you are finding that the bread is browning too quickly, feel free to cover it with foil. Just make sure that the sugar granules melt completely.

While the monkey bread is baking, you can prepare the cream cheese glaze. Using a stand mixer, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth, light and fluffy. Mix in the milk and vanilla until combined and the frosting is smooth.

Scoop cream cheese into a piping bag with a round tip and set aside.

Remove monkey bread from the oven and allow it to cool for 10 minutes before flipping it over onto a serving tray. It should drop right out.
