Thanks daezar, any others that's not chocolate as I should have mentioned that I'm not a fan of chocolate. Now if it was caramel that would be yummy.

Here are a couple for you.

25g butter or margarine
Grated rind and squeezed juice of 1 lemon (strain the juice to remove the pips)
2 cupIcing Sugar

Place the butter, lemon juice and rind in a small microwave proof jug or bowl. Microwave on high for 30 - 40 seconds until the butter is melted. Beat in the icing sugar to make a fluffy icing. Spread over the cooled cake.


100g cream cheese, softened
2 cups Icing Sugar
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon

Beat all ingredients together until well mixed, fluffy and smooth. Spread over the cooled cake.

I always use lemon icing which has a little butter added to it. Then I sprinkle with coconut.

I love coffee icing on a banana cake, just dissolve around 1 tsp in a tiny amount of boiling water and add to your basic icing.

Re previous post for coffee icing- it should read 1 tsp instant coffee.
