My all time favorite icing for cake would have to be chocolate. It doesn't matter if the cake is vanilla, chocolate or marble, I love the chocolate icing. What is your favorite icing on cake?

I loves me some strawberry, or banana. I know, I'm a child. But really, the icings that have fruity flavors are the best, though fudge icing comes pretty close.

I like strawberry icing too on top of vanilla cake. Haven't had it in ages though.

Oh wow, I have never had nor even heard of a fruit icing like strawberry or banana. That sounds really interesting, will have to try it sometime!

I like chocolate also, but I have to admit I tried the butter cream frosting and I fell in love with it. I put it on cupcakes once in awhile....nice change up for a sweet treat.

I like Cream Cheese frosting or Vanilla. Last night I made a cake with vanilla icing and it was very tasty!

I like chocoalte too. I also like the cream cheese kind. That is good on spice cake. I don't care for a lot of frosting because it's so sweet but I do like a little frosting on my cakes.

You're right. Some cakes go overboard with icing. Too sweet.

Cream cheese frosting is my favorite, but I like butter cream as well. White icing. Chocolate is ok in moderation, but I am not really big on chocolate at all.

Chocolate would be my favourite too. After that - possibly cocoa. I love icing on cakes!

I like using whipped cream for icing. Regular icing is sometimes to sweet for me but whipped cream is just right. I do like chocolate or cream cheese on occasion with some cakes but I mostly use the whip cream.

I agree. Sometimes the icing is way too sweet. The whipped is nice and light.

Honestly it depends on the cake. If it's az "regular" cake like chocolate, vanilla, marble, etc then definitely chocolate! BUT if it's coffee cake, carrot cake, or spice cake then it has to be cream cheese icing. Cream cheese icing is also really yummy on Cinnamon buns! Mmmmmm now I'm getting hungry lol. I am a chocoholic though as I can never have too much chocolate, but for some reason chocolate icing on a carrot cake to me would just taste wrong!

my favourite icing on a cake is chocolate! i am like you, it doesnt matter what type of cake it is, long as the icing is chocolate. i am not a huge cake person (i like pie!) but if i eat cake, it has to have some sort of element of chocolate.
