oh. that's a tough one. What kind of frosting? What kind of cake? Is it sugar cookies? Icing definitely. Is is a really moist cake with only a thin layer of non-oily frosting? Frosting. umm...

What does it say about me when I didn't know there was a difference. That being said, I say frosting. It sounds less Powdered sugar and milk-ish (that was icing for me growing up).

Icing all the way. It is the best. You can eat more of it too because it is less sweet...at least I think so.

mmm. . icing on some warm sugar cookies.

There's a difference?

Queen Scarlett said...

I'm echoing Sue...

Not a fan of frosting on cakes...I don't eat it... that goop of frosting ends up in my sink. ;-)

I do like making that powdered sugar, milk, vanilla concoction for cinammon rolls... or cream cheese with brown sugar for cookies.

It that the difference? Where it goes?

I like the peel-off frosting on TasTCakes, and their bastard cousin, the Zinger.

But for the best cake topper, throw on some ganache and I am there.

Ganache!

I love frosting. Thick and colorful.

And now I'm headed to the kitchen to make some cupcakes!

Shar said...

Whichever one has more butter and sugar.

If they have the same than... frosting.

I was going to answer ganache too!

Frosting (if it's good)
Icing (if it's a donut, or a pound cake.)
