Rated as 4.81 out of 5 Stars

"A friend of mine requested a light whipped cream mousse-like frosting for her Mother's Day cake. This is what I came up with. If you are looking for a white frosting use clear vanilla and white chocolate pudding. It does require refrigeration."

  1. Beat the whipping cream, instant pudding mix, milk, and vanilla extract together with an electric hand mixer in a large bowl until soft peaks start to form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the mixture will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  2. Fold the whipped topping into the whipping cream mixture to evenly mix. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Excellent recipe, followed as directed and it was fabulous. Did add food coloring for my son's bday cupcakes, yellow might not have been to masculine. Also 1 8 oz tub of whipped topping is 3 c...

My husband, all my friends and I all love this frosting. I use chocolate pudding to add some chocolate flavor. We all fight over who gets to eat what's left in the bowl, if there is any!

Oh. My. Gosh. This is the best frosting. EVER! I loved it! I made it exactly as written but with a chocolate pudding mix instead of a vanilla for a cake on Mother's day. It's so simple and easy ...
