You can ice this cake using 250g of icing sugar and a little warm water to create glace icing.  It should be thicker than pouring consistency.
 
You can also add 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon or a handful of dark chocolate drops to really make it interesting (although these additions are not recommended together).
