This is a great alternative to those sugary, heavy frostings. The best part is, you can change the taste of the frosting by using any flavor of pudding.

  • 1 envelope Dream Whip topping mix
  • 1 (4 ounce) package instant pudding mix (vanilla, chocolate)

I love this frosting. I first saw it on a lemon cake mix where you poke and pour lime Jello over the cake then frost it with the lemon pudding/Dream Whip frosting. I've used vanilla pudding on strawberry cake, but I haven't tried the chocolate yet.

I love this recipe!!! Tasty, easy and not too sweet as many frostings tend to be. I also like the versatility of being able to change flavors depending on the cake. I used this on Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Cake by Bunco Babes. (double recipe for layer cake). Guests had seconds!!!!!! Thank you sooo much for sharing, will be using this recipe from now on!
