Hi and welcome to cc. I love the "original" WASC recipe by kakeladi found in the recipe section on this site. I also use Indydebi's buttercream recipe for my icing. You can find it on cc as well in the "most saved" recipes. Another option for icing a cake is ganache. I use the 2:1 ratio of chocolate to cream and it's really good under fondant.

This site is filled with tons of good recipes. Search the recipes and start baking thumbs_up.gif Gotta warn you...this site is very addictive. icon_lol.gif

This thread is one heck of a jumping off point for flavor combos!

Set aside an extra couple hours to read through it. icon_smile.gif
