Last week i made cupcakes with a cherry filling, and I'm planning on doing the same with raspberries this week. However, the raspberries are homegrown and not too sweet, so I'd like to pair it with a frosting (I'm using yellow cake) that doesn't overpower them. Any ideas? I'm stuck for pairings with this one. Thanks!

I always like lemon or chocolate with raspberries

Lemon frosting is really good with raspberries. I also like to use a light frosting that allows the taste of the raspberries to shine. Like this;
Pink Mountain Frosting
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup light corn syrup
2 Tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine sugar, corn syrup and cherry juice in saucepan. Cover, heat to rolling boil over medium heat. Remmove cover and boil without stirring till it reaches 242F on a candy thermometer. Or, until a small amount of mixture spins a thread when dropped from a spoon
While mixture is boiling beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Pour syrup slowly in a thin stream into the beaten egg whites while beating constantly on meduim speed Beat on high speed until still peaks form. Add vanilla during last minute of beating.
Makes a nice, light, pretty pink frosting

I've paired raspberry filling, raspberry buttercream (with a white cake) and it was a great combination.

Thank you everyone! Thank you Kittiangirl especially, that sounds fantastic... more things to try! I think I'm gonna combine a few of the posts and do a lemon cream cheese. Yum!

I've done chambord in the frosting when using berry filling/flavoring in the cake. Obviously doesn't work if you're doing them for a kids' party but tasty if it is for adults!

I recently did raspberry filling in a cake and I used a lemon frosting. I think the combination tasted great, but I agree with a previous poster that cream cheese would probably be great also! Maybe some kind of struedel flavor? Kind of like a blackberry pie. I don't have a recipe for one, but I'm imagining brown sugar and cinnamon in a cream cheese base.

So many of these sound so good! I have made Blackberry and Raspberry puree and incorporated with Vanilla bean SMBC and made a seriously delish filling, and then just used regular SMBC frost.
