I use cool whip light...and reduced fat cream cheese...


  1. mix all ingredients until blended.
  2. whip welll.
  3. spread on your choice of cake.

Amazing! I used this in a three-layer yellow cake with strawberry filling. I spread this frosting along with the strawberry filling on each layer, then frosted the entire cake. I added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to this and used lite Cool Whip and cream cheese. My boyfriend raved about the cake and ate two slices in one sitting! I wish I made more frosting for my leftover strawberries so I had something exquisite to dip them in. Thanks for a keeper!

Thanks for posting a great recipe. I used this with Kittencal's recipe #121323. This was the perfect frosting for it. Thanks again.

My favorite icing. Have everyone wanting the recipe. I have used it for cupcakes in the past and today I'll try it on cake. What I do differently is mix the sugar with the cream cheese first and then slowly add it to the cool whip so the cool whip doesn't go flat. This should be made shortly before it is served because it does go flat and forms a rubber-like surface by the next day. Great for coloring, and super fluffy-whipped
