Lemon with lemon frosting
Lime with lemon frosting
Blueberry with lemon frosting
Vanilla Nut with cinnamon peacan frosting

My comments: vanilla nut was the only one that worked out the way I wanted it to. The other flavors were a bit bland, but the lemon frosting was good.
Lemon: Juice of one lemon (or 1/2 lemon juice would have been better), Tofutti cream cheese, lemon zest, earth balance, powdered sugar, food processor.
Pecan: Earth balance, 1 handful pecan nuts choppped, powdered sugar, vanilla, food processor.
