This is the best sugar free frosting I have ever tasted. I did change it a little. I used reduced fat cream cheese and cut the milk back to 1 1/2c. I have used both vanilla and cheesecake flavored pudding mixes and the vanilla is the best in my opinion. GREAT ON CARROT CAKE!!! Read More

use 1/2 the amount of milk and maybe the large box of pudding to firm it up. Read More

This frosting is surprisingly great! I followed the previous suggestion and used the big box of pudding (2.1 oz I think) and reduced the milk to one cup. This made for a good thick frosting. It was almost gummy which helped it stick really well and not melt but it still tasted great (not sticky)! Read More

I have several diabetics in my family and I am always trying to create a delicious dessert for them. I have created many wonderful recipes and I don't use artificial sweeteners so they taste great but they don't always look very decadent. I made some sugar free cinnamon buns adapting one of the recipes from this website and topped it with this icing which was infact quite good. It made these cinnamon buns look just like the originals and for once they had a sinful looking sugar free dessert. Thank you. Read More

I have made this recipe several times use large box of pudding adjust the milk a little at a time to get the consistency you need for frosting. The frosting stayed on the cake no problem use less milk so it's thicker. Just love this. It is like chocolate mousse. Will try other sugar-free flavors in the future. Read More

I'm giving this one just four stars because of the way it melted and puddled around the cake when it was out of the fridge for ten minutes. I had made a birthday cake and decorated the top and sides. The resulting meltdown of the frosting ruined the appearance of the whole cake. On the other hand the frosting was easy to make and had a great flavor....just make sure you keep it really cold.

Update 9-29-11. Used only 1.5 cups milk and vanilla sf pudding on a chocolate sf cake. Creamy frosting did NOT slip off cake..you need to reduce milk but be careful blending the pudding into the cream cheese because it can get lumpy so incorporate pudding slowly and blend well. 2003 review: I used banana sugar-free pudding and put it on a sweet-n-low boxed chocolate cake mix. I also added nuts raisins and two teaspoons of cocoa to the cake mix. We all liked it. Read More

I was excited to find a sugar free frosting recipe for carrott cake. I tweeted the recipe just a little. I used 1 stick of softened butter 1 - 8oz. room temp cream cheese 1 1/2 cup of milk 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 - 1.4 oz of instant vanilla pudding completely omitting the whipped topping. Next time I may increase the cream cheese to 12 oz. I like the buttery taste and would like more of the cream cheese flavor Read More
