Best frosting? And first post

Hey guys! im Walid but everyone calls me Waldo. I have a huge addiction to baking! Anything I put in the oven turns out good (knock on wood) but I wanna learn more and grow as a baker which is why I joined. So my question is, what is the best frosting you guys know of for cupcakes and cakes. I have a butter cream frosting recipe from Wilton that I added my own twist to but I want one were people go crazy for it and don't find it too sweet. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

One of the recipes that so many here on DC agree on is the Hershey chocolate cake and frosting that you can find on the back of the Hershey Cocoa container. It is to die for.

We have several folks here that bake for a living. You should be hearing from them shortly. And then we have the home bakers who are great in the kitchen also.

Welcome to DC. You are going to have a lot of fun here. Looking for a laugh? Go to Today's Funny. Or look for the Chicken Chronicals.

I have to agree with Addie too. That is my favorite frosting. I do like cream cheese frosting too. Welcome.

Howdy!
Welcome to D.C.!
A twist on the Hershey's frosting that I am fond of is the addition of a bit of cayenne in it. Not too much, just enough to give it some extra warmth in the back of the throat.
'Course, folks here can attest that sometimes I eat some weird stuff.
