Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk pudding with milk in a small bowl. Set aside in fridge or freezer until thick/solid; about 3 minutes; it’s not very long.
  2. Meanwhile beat butter & shortening in a bowl with a hand mixer. Add vanilla & thickened pudding. Blend until combined.
  3. Add powdered sugar & blend again.
  4. Add milk, 1 Tbsp at a time until desired consistency is achieved. (I added about 3 to 4 Tablespoons.
  5. Fill pastry bag & pipe icing onto cupcakes or spread with a spatula onto a round cake.
  6. Makes about 2 1/2 to 3 cups frosting. **Use promptly after freshly being made. If prepared beforehand: thin with additional milk to a spreadable consistency. Keep refrigerated.
