What is the difference between icing and frosting? (for a cake)


Is there actually any difference between icing and frosting? Or is it the same thing? I have always iced my cakes with icing sugar but I am now needing a solution that provides for a much thicker coating. I can make icing thick but it is not necessarily smooth and I do not want to have to buy it. Does anyone have a solution/recipe for a good thick icing/frosting?
