A simple cream frosting that can be adapted to any flavour of instant pudding. I like using vanilla, lemon, and chocolate flavours. This frosting is especially good on angel food cake, because it is not too sweet.

  2. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, beat pudding mix with milk on low speed for 1 minute.
  4. Let set 1 minute.

I just finished frosting my cake, but after licking the spoon I think it's okay to review already :) This is: a) incredibly easy! b) incredibly versatile! (I used sugar free instant pudding) c) incredibly tasty! I frosted a two layer cake, and wish I'd made a double batch. I could have used about another half batch--although I'm a pretty poor froster so others may not have this problem.

Can't make my mind up on this one. Hubby loves it, but I think it was a tad too thick. I used light cool whip instead of whipping cream and that could have made the difference. Loved the low cal and no butter in it!
