I'm not like that at all. I really hate cake icing.

Icing or frosting..? Is there a difference for you guys?

Icing goes on a bundt cake or cinnamon roll. It's more liquidy. Frosting goes on a cake. It's thick and creamy and best when home-made Drooling the stuff on a store-bought cake is nasty and flavorless.

I really miss American confections, I find the ones here to be over-baked, dry, and strangely textured. Nothing has a melt-in-your-mouth quality. Sadcryface
OOPS! I meant frosting. Icing is okay.

I figured Cool I think most people use the words interchangeably, but for me there's a distinction. Tongue

Atheism is the only way to truly be free from sin.

For all you frosting haters: I suspect you have experienced only crappy frosting as on store-bought cakes. Real frosting is sublime.

This.

My mother used to make homemade frosting. It wasn't the ultra sweet sugar paste that comes in a tube or on a DQ cake. It was light, fluffy, not overly sweet, and nearly evaporated in your mouth.

The crap they put on pre-made cakes is thick and overly sweet paste. It's like adding a crapton of sugar to vaseline and calling it frosting. Not even close.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

That^.

Here is a lovely, light frosting of egg whites and brown sugar on a chocolate cake.

The frosting complements the cake and melts in your mouth.
