Stir the yeast and 1 teaspoon of the sugar into the milk. Allow to proof, or get bubbly for 5 minutes. In a mixer, add the remaining sugar, butter, salt, egg and 2 cups flour. Using a stand mixer and paddle attachment, mix until smooth. Switch attachment to the dough hook and add about 1 - 1 1/2 cups more flour. Knead for about 3 minutes or until it comes together around the dough hook.
Place the dough in a bowl that has been greased with a little oil, then it flip over so both sides are oiled. Cover and let rise in a warm place till doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours. Make the filling while the dough rises.
To make the filling, beat all ingredients together until creamy. Set aside.
Punch down dough. Remove the dough and roll into an 18 x 12-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread with half the orange filling.
Roll up the dough beginning at the wider side. Pinch to seal the seam. Using dental floss (or knife) cut the roll into 1 1/2-inch slices (12 rolls).
Place into a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Cover and let rise till doubled, about 40 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375º.
Bake till golden, about 20-25 minutes. Frost with remaining filling while warm.
These rolls can be stored at room temperature for 2-3 days.
