Banana cake and what flavor icing?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
First let me say I LOVE this site. I am a total amateur when it comes to cake decorating but have so much fun winging it.

On to my question: I have baked off a banana flavored cake and other than the obvious chocolate for an icing, what flavors would you suggest? I am hoping to try out some techniques I have read about and seen on here so fondant flavors are also an option.

Any help would be greatly appreciated so I don't end up with a boring Chocolate/Banana combo.

As a newbie myself, I will agree that this site is AWSOME! I hope to be close to as good as those on here.

I have used cream cheese on my banana cakes. MMMMMM is all I can say. HTH and best of luck.

How about strawberry? I've never had a banana cake but strawberry and banana go good in other things.

I'll never fit in a size 6 if I keep having cake for breakfast.

There was a thread a few days ago talking about a banana cake and a nutella buttercream icon_biggrin.gif

Both cream cheese and strawberry sound promising too!!

You could try a cinnamon buttercream, or a coconut frosting. How about banana split flavors...pineapple, strawberry, chocolate and nuts in a filling? I would also love a mocha filling/frosting, because I LOVE mocha!

I do a banana cake with brown sugar buttercream--we call it punuche in my family and it is everyone's fave. Melt 1/2 c SALTED butter in a sauce pan with 1 c brown sugar. Bring it to a boil and add 2 tb heavy cream. Cool, then beat in 2 c sifted powdered sugar. It is good enough to eat like candy!

Peanut Butter.... or PB and Chocolate swirl.

Strawberry sounds good too. icon_biggrin.gif

Vanilla frosting but Twinkie filling. It tastes like a banana flip!
