What about dark chocolate ganache? Not too sweet, but still delicious!

There are two methods: (sorry I don't have measured amounts as I just throw it in! )

Meltbutter, let bubble then remove from heat and add in chopped dark chocolate. Stir briskly until melted - may need to VERY briefly put back on heat, leave to cool a little and thicken. Stir and then pour over cake.

Or, heat cream in a pot, when boiling add in chopped dark chocolate, remove from heat and stir briskly. Leave to cool a little and thicken. Stir and then pour over cake.

You could google for the exact amounts.

rub soft (not melted) butter into icing sugar till it looks like breadcrumbs.

Chocolate. Stir in cocoa and a bit of water and bet for 5 mins till light and fluffy

Lemon. add fresh lemon jucie and zest(zest can be added ontop of icing) and bet for 5 mins or till light and fluffy.

This doesn't have that overly sugary taste to it, so its a nice one:) IF it does, you haven't added enough butter! !
