Working togetherCategory: HomeworkIdiom meaning – 'icing on the cake'
chayal Staff asked 5 years ago

You probably know it doesn’t literally mean putting icing on the cake.
So in your opinion, what does ‘icing on the cake’ mean?
Give an example….

The saying “icing on the cake” is referring to something that is not the most important part, but it adds to the main point.
Another way of saying this is “cherry on top”.

 Thanks @Christina N. you can also define it as an unexpected additional to something that is already a good situation:
Ex: He was already happy with his pay rise, however when they told him about the large bonus he was going to receive that was the icing on the cake.
