My favorite icing for bananna cake is fresh whip cream, especially if it's filled with it and cream. Yummmm!

I would use a cream cheese icing. Do you have a recipe for that?

I know cream cheese frosting goes really well with banana cake. I made a banana cake with carmalized bananas for the filling and frosted it with caramel buttercream, it was yummmmmmy!

I don't think I do have a cream cheese frosting recipe. I can just go look one up in the recipe box though --- now that I know what to hunt for.

Nickshalfpint -- the carmelized bananas and carmel buttercream sound delicious.
Would you mind to share the carmel buttercream recipe?

Thanks again everyone!

I would think Brown Sugar SMBC or a fudgey chocolate ganache.

Goodness.. they all sound so good! Chocolate, cream cheese, carmel buttercream, brown sugar SMBC, or a fudgey chocolate ganache. How am I going to choose between all of these wonderful delights?
