    There I was yesterday, eating a lovely lemon and poppy seed cake. But then BLURGH! Plain, flavourless! Lumps of icing that taste of nothing but in two mouth fulls make me feel full and sick.

    That's when it hit me. Butter icing is never nice. And what's worse is that it's almost always used in conjunction with extremely dry cakes that trick you into buying them because they look really good.

    May I suggest to all future cake makers to use cream cheese frosting instead.

    Does this 1L tub exist? May I have access to this pot of joy?

    Too sickly for my taste. I much prefer chocolate, cream cheese frosting, sharp drizzle type icing or fresh cream on my cakes.

    Jack, what the hell is wrong with you. I used to eat it from a tub in my student days.

    The very thought of that makes me gag :puke:

    Small quantities I can cope with provided the rest of the cake or confection balances it out.

    Lol butter icing is crap...no, may as well say raw cake mix is as well (if you do, fatwa declared). Though lack of vanilla essence is a downside, also can do say lemon butter icing.

    Never tried cream cheese frosting/icing though, will use it next time I bake to compare.

    Yes, it's gross. Literally a chunk of butter mixed with icing sugar :puke:

    It's pretty clear why so many Brits are obese really :rolleyes:
