Whipped Frosting

Category: ,

As promised, here is the delicious whipped frosting that was spread on the ice cream cake posted yesterday.  It's a very soft icing so not great for piping, but it is delicious and is much like frosting a cake with whipped cream.  To borrow from Joe Bastianich's statement off Master Chef last night, it's "ghetto delicious."  That's my new favorite phrase to describe something that's great but not culinarily snotty.

Anyway, back to the frosting- this is one of the few I make that doesn't require a stand mixer, so it's nice.  It's main ingredient is cool whip, so again, it's fluffy, spreadable, and soft.  It also contains pudding mix, so your flavor can be whatever you want it to be, provided that an instant pudding is made in that flavor.  I always use chocolate.  Here it is, from my mom's kitchen:

Whipped Cake Frosting
1 small box instant pudding
1/4 cup confectioner's sugar
1 cup milk
1-8 oz tub cool whip

Combine the first three ingredients in a bowl.  Beat them one minute and then fold in the cool whip.  Spread on a cake of your choice and store cake in fridge.
