Cake with icing

I never liked cakes with heavy decoration from the bakery. But for my own birthday last week I made a cake with icing on top. This is the first time I used an icing reciepe and it turned out awfully sweet. My boys tried just one bite and they gave up!

I don't care for icing at all.  The only way I will eat cake is with whipped cream frosting.  I loved the Strawberry Cake with whipped cream frosting that alfred's bakery in Schenectady made.  Delish!  The whipped cream frosting wasn't overly sweet, which I like and heavenly.
