RE: What Kind of Icing on Your Cake
I'm more of a glaze or drizzle person than heavy frosting or icing. Actually, the term "icing" brings to mind a thin layer of the stuff, more so than "frosting." And I want the real stuff, butter or cream cheese, real cream, real chocolate, real flavorings - no Crisco!
I love mocha buttercream on yellow cake, dark chocolate glaze on a dense chocolate one layer cake, cream cheese icing on carrot cake, or a lemon glaze on pound cake. For me, it's all about the cake - not about the frosting.
