What type of frosting? all bakers get in here

Okay so I am making red velvet cupcakes for V-day, but I am not a huge cream cheese frosting fan. Is there a way I can make it appeal to me a little more, or any other frosting suggestions other than plain old boring vanilla?

I have always liked to add a little vanilla or almond extract to mine to make it a little sweeter. Also, one thing really good to do with red velvet cake is take a milkyway candy bar and cut it into small pieces then bake it inside. With that, I use whipped vanilla frosting, but I think you can find whipped chocolate as well. Chocolate is always good with red velvet cake.

Put a little of this in the frosting.

I dan't like red velvet at all, but my husband likes it when paired with a whipped cream cheese frosting with a little almond and coffee extract.

What about white chocolate frosting?


WHITE CHOCOLATE FROSTING 
6 oz. white baking chocolate (chopped up)
1/4 c. heavy cream
2 sticks butter
1 c. powdered sugar
Stir white chocolate and whipping cream in pan over hot water until melted and smooth. Cool. Add butter and sugar, beat on high until light and fluffy. makes about 3 cups. Keeps well in refrigerator.

The Milky Way bar sounds fantastic. I like the whipped chocolate idea too! Thank you!

A whipped cream frosting would be good, I would suggest either whipped cream frosting or a plain old whipped vanilla frosting (from my tastes)

No problem. lol I like coming up with different ways to bake things. Like, one thing I do with brownies is I add mini marshmallows and peanutbutter chips to them...it's delicious!
