Pour water and sugar into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a dough hook, sprinkle yeast over top and stir. Allow yeast to bloom for 5-10 minutes. Once it is nice and foamy, it is ready. In the meantime, melt 6 Tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Once yeast mixture is aromatic and looks like the head of a beer, add buttermilk, eggs and butter to bowl of stand mixer. Mix on low and add 4 cups of flour, one cup at a time. Add salt. Once flour is mixed in, add remaining flour slowly until dough becomes a ball. Knead dough on medium high for 5 minutes. Add more flour a Tablespoon at a time as needed, if bread is too sticky to come together. Dough should be tacky when you pull it out of the mixer, not sticky. Lightly dust counter top with flour. Turn dough out onto counter top. Knead a few turns, shape dough into a ball. Add 1 Tablespoon butter to bowl and heat in microwave until melted.
Place dough into bowl upside down, flip dough over and cover loosely with plastic wrap and drape bowl with a towel. Set bowl in a warm place in your kitchen. Allow dough to rise for 60-90 minutes until nearly doubled in size. Meanwhile combine light brown sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch in a medium bow. Stir with a fork until well combined. Set aside. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough a few turns, then using a rolling pin, roll out into a 18 inch tall x 24 inch wide rectangle. SPread softened butter around dough leaving the bottom 1 inch border uncoated. Sprinkle buttered dough with brown sugar mixture, leaving the bottom 1 inch uncoated. Use your rolling pin to gently press sugar mixture into the dough. Starting at the top, tightly roll dough toward you, using the last 1 inch to seal roll. Cut dough in half and then cut those halves in hand giving you 4 pieces. Cut each of those pieces into 1/3rd. You will have 12 pieces.
Grease 2 9 x 13 inch baking dishes. Place rolls in pans evenly spaced out, 2 rows of 3 rolls each. Make sure to put the end pieces upside down. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and drape a towel over pans. Set pans in a warm place and allow rolls to rise another 60-90 minutes until rolls have doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for approximately 20 minutes until golden brown and cooked through. Halfway through baking time rotate pans. In the meantime prepare frosting. Add cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with until light and fluffy. Add remaining ingredients. Beat until mixture is light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Set aside. Remove rolls from oven. Spread 1/4 frosting over each pan of rolls. Allow to cool slightly and repeat. Serve and enjoy.
