Which one

I am making the Hershey's chocolate cake. Instead of their frosting, I am making a white frosting and dyeing it green. the cake will be baked in a bunt pan and resemble a wreath when I am through. I have all the dry ingredients mixed and put aside. Will finish the cake on the 23rd.

So for the frosting. Cream cheese or butter cream? It will be dyed green and covered in green coconut with dark green sugar throughout to make it sparkle. Any recommendations?

For you, cream cheese it is. I will send your piece on its way. The reason I considered CC is because it is not as sweet as the butter cream icing. And with the coconut it will be sweet enough. I just wasn't sure of my decision. You convinced me.

I would have chosen butter cream. I just don't like the combination of cream cheese and chocolate. That just my personal taste though.

I love chocolate cake with cream cheese icing!

I was thinking if making a yule log and filling it with cream cheese icing.

I don't like cheese with my chocolate either. Glad I'm not the only one

My vote is cream cheese, I agree Addie the coconut and sugar sprinkles will make the frosting even sweeter.
