Kids love this icing on cupcakes! It is an easy to spread whipped cream-type icing with a pretty pastel color and a nice fruit flavor with a little bit of tang. It has a good consistency for piping from a pastry bag. If you ever need lavender icing, the grape flavor is a good altenative to mixing red and blue food coloring. (I don't work for Kraft Foods, honest!).

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (8 ounce) container whipped topping (Cool Whip)
  • 1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme
  • 1 (1/4 ounce) packet unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix (any flavor)


  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and beat at medium speed until smooth.
  2. This makes enough to frost one 9x13-inch sheet cake or 24 cupcakes.
  3. Refrigerate any leftover frosting.

1 package or kool-aid was TOO much. The color is the same with a little or a lot. I would have put more marshmallow creme in if you want the piping to keep its shape. Taste was very good and it worked great as a filler between cake layers.
