January 22nd, 2022- JusJoJan+SoCS- Icing on the cake?

I am not fond of icing on the cake! Provided the cake is tasty on its own. And if it’s not good enough to eat on its own, eating it with super sweet and calorie-rich icing is just pointless.

There are a few instances where icing is a must to enhance the flavor of something that already tastes good! For example, cream cheese icing on red velvet cake/ cupcake. Or a fruit compoté on top a cheesecake, and I wouldn’t call it icing, except in the broader sense of the meaning.

As for brownies, I don’t call a brownie with even a chocolate glaze, a brownie. A brownie is soft, fudgy, and has no icing on the top.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and my very first birthday-Stream-of-Consciousness-Saturday is: “icing on the cake.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “icing on the cake.” Enjoy!

  1. I agree on the brownie – plain, no frosting – and I prefer plain vanilla cheesecake with a fruit topping on the side. As for icing or frosting on a cake, I don’t mind as long as it isn’t sickeningly sweet and layered thin. I prefer the majority of my tastebuds to know the cake, rather than the frosting.
