“Romance is the icing, but love is the cake”

"Romance is the icing, but love is the cake” has been cited in print since at least 2000. Authorship of the saying is unknown. American chef and television personality Julia Child (1912-2004) is sometimes credited for the saying, but there is no evidence that she ever said it.
