Your New Favorite Frosting!

Remember a while ago when I talked about my sisters' birthday and the super cool tie-dye cake that I made? In that blog, I mentioned that I'd share about the super great frosting at some point. Well, that point is today! Woohoo!

To see the recipe for this frosting, check out this link.

So, pretty much every time I make frosting, I make this kind. Granted, before I made this kind of frosting, I generally didn't make frosting - I used the kind from a can - but this is so so so good and so so so easy, that I generally just make this whenever I need to frost a cake. It tastes far better than the canned stuff and, oh my goodness, just....yum!

The last time I made this frosting was for my son's 2nd birthday. I added the ingredients, mixed it together, and added food coloring (which worked wonderfully as well) and it tasted delightful, and I'm not just saying that - this is also according to all of the party guests - which was mainly family who don't mind being brutally (well...tactfully) honest when necessary. Thankfully, this time they did like it.

Unfortunately, after these two pictures, I got distracted and quit taking pictures, so I don't have a picture of the end result. But, the blog that I referred to above does, so I stole her picture.

Seriously, I could just spoon this stuff into my mouth.  The only version of this that I have tried has been with vanilla pudding, but I hear it works with chocolate pudding too - or any kind of pudding you may fancy. I'm looking forward to giving it a try sometime soon. Oh! And, instead of using cool whip, you can also use real whipping cream. I wanted to give that a try the last time I made it, but I was just too durned lazy. Awe well, there's always next time...

Really though, if you like cool whip, or frosting, or whipping cream, I'd recommend you give this frosting recipe a try. Because of the pudding it firms up nicely but still tastes fluffy and wonderful. Mmmm...I may have to find an excuse to make some right now.
