Other questions about "Icing"

Q: What is opposite with “the icing on the cake”
A: This is a tricky question...

Icing on the cake means the best thing of an already good thing.

If you are asking about something that means the worst thing of a bad situation people will often say “as if that’s not bad enough.”

For example “I lost my car keys so I was late to work! As if that’s not bad enough I got fired too!!”

To get “kicked while down” means to get hurt emotionally when you are already hurt. This is an expression and not literal.

“My girlfriend broke up with me.”

“I heard she already has a new boyfriend.”

“Wow, way to kick me while I’m down.”

Hope that helps some.
