Best icing I have ever tasted! My husband ate the leftover icing like pudding. I used Low Fat Cool Whip, Low Fat milk, and sugar free pudding and it was so yummy without all the calories! From now on, this will be the only icing we eat. No more of the store bought stuff.


Beautiful light texture with a deeply creamy taste. It was also thick enough to easily use between layers in a layer cake. I will most certainly use this again, especially as it will be very easy to vary the flavor (by just changing the pudding) to match any kind of cake. NOTE: For a 9" layer cake (4 layers with frosting between each layer and around the entire outside of the cake), I doubled the recipe EXCEPT for the cool whip (kept that to 1 container). It turned out perfectly.


This was great and easy! I really dislike overly sweet frostings, so this was perfect. I did have some problems getting it to spread well, but that might have been a timing issue. I had to make the frosting before the cake was completely cooled, so it sat in the fridge for a while before I frosted the cake.
