My husband is not a fan of frosting, because it's so sweet. He'd prefer I bake a cake for him to eat dry, rather than to put traditional frosting on it. However, he really likes pudding, so I used this recipe and frosted his birthday cake (Sour Cream Yellow Cake) and he LOVED it! He says he wants this every year!
I love this. But I did not use the sugar free pudding or lite cool-whip though. Full fat for me! It is great with any flavor pudding, not merely choc and vanilla too.
This is a great recipe if you're looking to shave some calories when frosting a cake. I didn't use sugar free pudding, but used regular french vanilla. It had a nice smooth texture and wasn't overly sweet. I'm looking forward to trying this reicpe using chocolate pudding. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
This is all I've made for cakes for at least 2 yrs. Wonderful!
This frosting is so light and fluffy. Everyone loved it. Thank you!
Thanks for the great recipe. I made this for Easter but used the sugar free lemon pudding and added some lemon zest for freshness. I frosted an angel food cake with it and it was HEAVEN! I had to have two slices! Good thing its light ;)
I used regular pudding mix, not sugar free. I also used Tru Whip instead of Cool Whip to try to make it a little more healthy. very nice light frosting will be using this more
This was a great lite frosting. Very tasty. Thanks for posting.
As everyone else has said, this is great! I used this frosting on a French vanilla cake with strawberry filling. Tasted like strawberry shortcake, but better! This can be done many different ways which is the beauty of it. I chilled the frosting while the cakes cooled and it was perfectly thickened by the time I was ready to use it. Extremely delicious, and simple! Thanks, kmdipaolo!
This was scrumptious! I used fat free sugar free white chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, because it was all I had in the house, and it turned out wonderfully. I used this easy, delicious frosting to frost a white angel food cake with raspberry filling, and it was absolutely perfect. Light, lowfat, and undeniably delicious! Thank you for posting. It took all of 3 minutes to make and almost less time to devour. :)
