best flavor is all in personal preference. If you haven't tried them then i suggest making each to find which you like better.

I think each smoothes well on a cake, it's all in the technique you use, as they each require a different kind of technique to get smooth (since they're different consistencies)

I agree with leily. It depends on your preference. Also, each type cream gives the cake a different overall flavor. So, it all depends on what type of flavor you are going for...
