How could I decorate a cake without frosting?

My boyfriend's birthday is coming up and he loves vanilla cake; but hates frosting. He scrapes the frosting off of every cake and cupcake, so how could I make a flavorful decorative cake without using frosting?

You could use fondant, or you could use Cool Whip or RediWhip. :) My fav. is Satin Ice fondant. Or you can melt chocolate on top or put jam on it. Look up cakes with jam and no frosting and you'll be amazed! :D

*edit* peanut butter is really good too!

you can sprinkle powdered sugar on the cake. if you make a stencil and lay it across the top, then sprinkle the powdered sugar on top, then remove the stencil you can make some very neat designs. this works best with a chocolate cake or other dark cakes so you can see the sugar better
