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!).

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.

  • 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.
