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.

Back in the late 40's early 50's, my grandmother baked in a wood fired stove and made the lightest cakes I have ever tasted.
My favorite was a yellow, very moist cake, covered with a tan almost caramel tasting buttery frosting. This, if I remember correctly, involved many egg whites being whipped by hand.
It was a wonder to behold, and all done on a behemoth of a wood stove.
She used no recipes to pass down, and children like me weren't allowed to get near the stove.
Now I would loved to have been able to have learned from her, and have never tasted a frosting like hers.
She lived in the hardscrabble hills of Appalachia.
