This is SO good. Even when you mess it up! I didn't read the instructions all the way through and started off by dumping the Dream Whip AND the pudding mix into the bowl. That was when I realized my mistake. Too late to do anything about it, I just dumped in the vanilla and started beating it. I didn't measure the milk, I just added a bit at a time until it got to a spreadable consistency. The flavour was so great! And next time, I plan on making it the RIGHT way! ;) I made this to put on top of Recipe #25340. It was such a nice topping. Thanks for posting this!
One of the traditions in my office is to bake a cake for every birthday. One co-worker is pre-diabetic so I went searching for an option that would support her new low-sugar lifestyle. Used this frosting on Derf's Chocolate sponge cake (<a href="/25340">Chocolate sponge cake</a>) and it was a wonderful treat we all enjoyed. I used white chocolate pudding in mine and found I needed about 3/4 cup skim milk whipped 2 minutes to make this into a fluffy frosting. With just 1/4 cup, the consistency was too thick and the blend had a strong chemical taste. I liked this so much, it may be come my regular frosting for all office cakes. Thanks.
This recipe was easy to put together, although I probably added at least another 1/4 of milk to get it to a frosting consistency. Thought the flavor & texture was good, and will likely make it again - it's a good frosting alternative for my diabetic DH. Might be fun to experiment with different pudding flavors, too.
