I love chocolate with vanilla... I like the surpise of it... maybe something like vanilla or a mild strawberry... cream cheese... something mellow because strawberry is so sharp... hope it helps?

I love strawberry cake, I've tried it with vanilla IMBC, chocolate IMBC and cream cheese icing, and the best was cream cheese. I didn't like it nearly as much with anything else.

Are you wanting an American buttercream but flavor it or are you wanting a homemade type "frosting". If you want a frosting a strawberry cream cheese is THE BOMB! If you are wanting to decorate the cake & trying to smooth, etc I get the most "mmm's" when I use Butavan. If you don't have any (get some) but if you can't get it in time I would use butter flavored

I'm actually wanting to decorate a baby shower cake with it. Cream cheese frosting sounds good, but will it hold up without having to be refrigerated? I will be applying fondant butterflies on the cake.
