Recipe doesn't say this but you need to refrigerate any cake you put this on or it will wilt. Really good flavor and easy to spread. I used chocolate frosting instead of vanilla.

I love that this gave me inspiration to make lightweight frosting. However, I learned that the recipe calls for over 3 oz. of instant pudding and it only needs 1small package (1oz) of pudding.
CDKitchen Note: The small box of regular instant pudding *IS* 3.5 ounces. Sugar free instant pudding (the small size) is 1.5 ounces. This recipe does not say to use sugar free, but of course, you can. You just need to make that substitution yourself.

This is by far the best ever frosting. Since I made it I can no longer go back to traditional frosting's. I usually make the chocolate cake on the back of the Hersey coco box and then top it with this. You will love it! Very light and creamy without that heavy sugary flavor. A must try.

Very easy to make and great for people that don't like the traditional very sugary frostings. I think it could maybe use a little tweaking, but a great start.

The recipe worked out wonderfully! My family aren't "frosting" fans and this was light, sweet and just perfect. I didn't add the vanilla though and thought that it was just fine without it. Maybe next time I will try whipping my own cream and adding a little powdered sugar because "Cool Whip" does have a distinct taste that one of my kids was not too fond of. However, I just love this recipe and can't wait to experiment with other flavors especially chocolate or cheesecake. Thank you!
