I used heavy cream instead of milk to make it thicker for piping. It turned out AMAZING!! I made 4 different colors using different colors of food coloring. A double batch frosted 36 cupcakes. Everyone LOVED it!!! Super easy and my son was super excited to help make "homemade" frosting. This is my new go to.

This was a simple recipe. My family loved it. Can't wait to try other pudding flavored. R.H. Lathrop Calif.

Outstanding frosting, and so easy to make! I used a box of Jell-O vanilla, sugar free, pudding with one cup of milk, and an 8 oz container of extra creamy cool whip (I omitted the frosting sugar because I didn't want it too sweet). I made a Black Forest cake with a chocolate, gluten free, bunt cake generously frosted with the cool whip frosting, and added cherry pie filling in the middle to fill in the hole. The cake had rave reviews and everyone agreed that the creamy delicious frosting was the best! I'm already planning how to use it the next time since you can flavor the frosting with any of the pudding flavors (cheese cake, chocolate, pistachio, banana, etc...). So delicious and light!
