Retaj, depends on what kind of frosting.  There are buttercream frostings, glaze frostings and even shortening-based frostings.


I personally like buttercream and the glaze frostings best.  I'll have to find the recipe for the buttercream but the glaze is very easy.  Use about 1 cup powdered sugar, add 1 teaspoon lemon juice(or vanilla extract if you prefer) and mix well.  If it's too thick you can add more liquid until it's thin enough to drizzle on the cake.  You can also change the flavor and/or color by changing the juice or extract.  I've used orange juice, strawberry extract, orange extract etc.  The possibilities are endless.
