There are a couple of birthdays coming up here and I want to see your best recipes for cake frosting/icing. I always make it the same way and I am looking for something different. Thanks!

You could melt a whole bunch of caramels and pour it over a chocolate cake and sprinkle it with baking m&ms. It's really good!
