It is a versatile frosting without the to-sweet flavor. Works well for decorating and piping. Also a good cake filling. On top of all that, it's super simple. Great for ice cream cakes. More stable that plain whipped cream frosting.

  • 2 cups whipping cream (equal to the amount of milk called for on the pudding box)
  • 4 ounces instant pudding mix (any flavor you prefer)


  1. Chill mixing bowl (metal) and beater(s).
  2. Whip the cream for a few minutes
  3. and then add your instant pudding.
  4. Watch as you continue whipping it as it gets firm fast.
  5. If it gets firm to fast, add a little milk to bring it to your desired consistency.
  6. To make larger or smaller batches use an amount of whipping cream equal to the amount of milk called for on the pudding box.

I made this today with vanilla pudding mix. It had a wonderful, buttery mouth-feel. I would suggest adding some almond or vanilla flavoring if using vanilla pudding mix, and watch the consistency closely. You will probably need to add some milk. Thanks for a very easy recipe!
