AThere is an old fashion caramel frosting. Be forewarned it is a bigger to get smooth. You'll need to hear it back up when it starts to harden. Check food network for the recipe. I started with that & tweaked it for my taste. I like to frost the cake the. Pour just the caramel on top & add some sea salt.

I also like peanut butter frosting ...especially with chocolate cake.

Other flavours

 

Coffee and mocha (use powdered coffee or espresso)

 

Rum or brandy using concentrated flavouring added to basic buttercream

 

Meringue buttercream with champagne used instead of water to cook the sugar

 

Maple (probably most popular in North America) used on spice or carrot cake

 

Lemon, orange, lime using true fruit oil added to buttercream (and possibly fruit curd also added)

 

Mango, pineapple, passionfruit using fruit puree as well as candy flavouring

 

Almond, pecan, hazelnut using candy flavours added to buttercream

 

Green tea (use matcha powder)

 

Cream cheese (use real full-fat)

 

Please--there is a world of icing flavours once you start looking in your grocery store and loloking for recipes online.  I am not going to provide recipes here because I believe you need to learn to find recipes for yourself.

AI agree, but I'm a beginner, and I wanted that kind of motivational leap of help, thanks a lot :)

Look at lorannoils.com for the many candy and ice cream flavours available.  They come in small size (dram=1 teaspoon) to try, for a reasonable price.

 

Use these drop by drop (they are very strong) but they make excellent tasting icing as well as candy.

 

This company also makes something called "emulsion" flavours which  some people like, but I didn't care for when I tried them.

 

Other excellent and reputable brands are Boyajian and McCormicks (FoodClub in Canada). Buy the "natural" whenever possible.
