I have a fresh install of Mint 15 with Cinnamon and I can't find an option to hide all icons on the desktop. In settings->Desktop there are only options to show/hide the home folder, trash, etc, but no option to hide the contents of the "Desktop" folder.

$HOME folder, not
** Question was edited to reflect the fact that it was the user's home folder icons showing, not just "my computer", "trash", etc.
