Stir in milk, butter, sugar, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg.
Beat in eggs.
Add currants, orange peel, and enough of the flour (about 4 cups) to make a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto floured board; knead until smooth and satiny (10 to 20 minutes), adding flour as needed to prevent sticking.
Turn dough over in a greased bowl; cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 1 1/2 hours).
Punch dough down and divide into 36 equal pieces; shape each into a smooth ball.
Place balls about 2 inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets.
Brush each gently with egg yolk mixture.
Cover lightly and let rise in a warm place until doubled (about 35 minutes).
Bake in a 400° oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool on racks for about 5 minutes; then, with a spoon or the tip of a knife, drizzle frosting over top of each bun to make a small cross.
