Let me tell you a cute story about icing. My nephews grew up . . .not in the south. When our kids were younger, we took a lot of "whole family" vacations to the beach. We always had an "unofficial" race to our checkpoints. The first stop was at Durbin's in Clanton. By then, someone had to go to the bathroom and we needed to buy peaches to take to the beach AND they serve great ice cream and fried pies. On one vacation, one of our nephews went to the counter to order. He was a younger teenager at that time. A cute little southern girl was taking his order. He ordered a Fried Peach Pie. The girl asked, "would you like icin' on that pie?" The uncles were nearby and heard this exchange and for the entire vacation teased our nephew about the cute southern girl asking him if he wanted icin' (pronounced Ah' sin) on his pie. To this day, every once in a while, someone will say "do you want icin' on that pie?" It is funny how a normal conversation can become fodder for a family joke.
One of my favorite icings is Cream Cheese Icing. Did you know if you google Cream Cheese Icing, the search brings up Cream Cheese FROSTING!! I could eat this until I made myself sick!!
I also love the icing that we put on our German Chocolate Cake! I evidently haven't made a German Chocolate cake in several years because I had a hard time finding a picture!! This icing is like CANDY! It is so yummy!!
Do you say "icing" or "frosting"? Do you enjoy the cake or the icing the most? What is your favorite flavor?
