Would love a yummy icing recipe... . I think I would like Chocolate (if anyone knows a good one) but I will consider all icings! ! ! hahaha

Personally I enjoy banana cake without any icing but IMO suitable icings would be lemon icing, lemon-flavoured cream cheese icing, maybe coffee icing? ? , chocolate icing - if you have some cream and dark chocolate maybe you'd like to make chocolate ganache... . . 125g dark chocolate and ½ cup cream. :-))

marley, try doing a search here on this Trademe MB using 'chocolate ganache' or 'chocolate icing' as the Keywords and 'Anytime' as the Date posted option - I recall that there have been various icings (chocolate ones in particular) posted at various times and you may find just THE icing that will appeal to your brother by doing that search. Lucky bro' having the cake made specially for him. :-))

I put a layer of raspberry jam under the chocolate icing between the layers of a banana cake recently by accident (senior moment = thought it was a chocolate cake) and my family have decided that that's the way it should always be now.

Gotta be real lemon icing!

I have put caramel (Or was it butterscotch) icing on a banana cake. (Can't remember why htough as I usually put chocoate icing on)

Rose is good too for something different. You can buy rose essence at the supermarket. Ganache is the best choc. icing inho.

The answer to your question I one pottle of sour cream and small'chunky' size chocolate bar. Break the bar into pieces and microwave until melted, stir in the pottle of sour cream and you have the yummiest icing you can imagine.

I use a plain butter icing and add freshly grated nutmeg. I put it on thick and 'rough' it up with a knife, forming small peaks, after which I dust the top with more grated nutmeg.
