Beat 1-2 egg whites, some drops of food coloring if wanted and powdered sugar until icing hardly drips off the back of a spoon.
More whites yield thinner, more sugar yields thicker icing. Spread/pour this over your cake.

Melt chocolate and a small amount of cream in a pot, pour over cake and slightly tilt it in all directions.

Mix 2-3 tablespoons of rum/water/coffee/lemon, orange, beet, grapefruit, pineapple, strawberry or raspberry juice/vodka??? with 150g powdered sugar. Pour over your cake and tilt in all directions to spread icing.

Go to Migros or Coop, ask the salespeople for "Glasur" and prepare as per instructions on the package. Pour on cake.

Happy to hear it!

It's called royal icing and can be used to frost just about anything

Re: Where to get cake coating

glowjupiter, for a second I thought you were suggesting using all of these as icing on the same cake!
I must do my baking tomorrow. You have got me inspired.
