What is the best sugar to substitute caster sugar for?
I have white, raw or brown here, it's for a banana cake.
Also, can anyone suggest a nice icing recipe to go with the banana cake?

Castor sauger is just finer white sugar so use white. Just if you are creaming butter and sugar may take a bit longer.

Castor is fine but I find everything tastes better when you use raw!!!

Cream cheese icing with lemon is my favourite for banana cake. But if you don't have any cream cheese, you could do a normal icing with some lemon in it, so long as you have lemons or lemon juice?
