I used this recipe for a cake I took to a Senior Citizens activity center. Alot of them are diabetic but just love anything sweet. Anyway, this was for St. Patrick's Day, so I used sugar-free, instant Pistachio pudding mix in place of the chocolate. It made a very nice and fluffy frosting and they all just loved it! Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
I made this frosting to cover a sugar free angel food cake...it was very good. I used half of the milk suggested to mix the pudding and used heavy cream to thin the pudding/cream cheese mixture and then folded the cool whip in. It was very fluffy and very easy to work with...thanks for the great recipe!
This recipe could frost two 9 x 13 cakes in our family. It is full of flavor and light and creamy. I have only used the chocolate but will try other flavors.
Yesterday was my first birthday since being diagnosed with diabetes, and my husband wanted me to be able to celebrate in spite of the dietary restrictions. So he made a fat-free angel food cake with this on top. It was wonderful ! He used vanilla pudding mix, so it tasted a little like cream cheese icing, my favorite. Our only slightly negative remark is that the recipe made barely enough to cover the two layer cake, so anyone using it for this purpose might want to extend the recipe by half.
Lio P, This Icing was good but a little to thin for me and I used only 1/2 the Milk. I made sure the cake was completely cooled even. Maybe next time I'll add more Pudding mix or Cream Cheese. It was fine after I refridgerated the cake but if i hadn't it would have all slid off. After it chilled in the fridge overnight, It was fanrastic. It just needed to be a little thicker for me! The Flavor deserves 5 stars! Thanks for this recipe!
