If you mix it too much it loses consistency what can I do?

Just used the real cool whip frosting and am anxious to try this but still need to know what size instant pudding to use. Small box or big box. Please

I love how easy this was to make. I used vanilla pudding mix but I think it will be fun to experiment with other flavors too. I think this would make a good filling in between cake layers.

I always make this with chocolate pudding mix and it is always delicious.

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.

This is the easiest frosting recipe! You can't go wrong with it. I've made it with vanilla or chocolate pudding mix. Always good.

question or comment
Do I prepare the pudding mix or just add the powder?

CDKitchen Note: Add the mix dry (unprepared)

I made this frosting for my daughter's 3rd birthday cupcakes. I substituted vanilla pudding mix for Cheesecake pudding mix and it was a HUGE hit! The leftover was used for fruit dip. Many people have asked me for the recipe since the party. I'll definitely be making this again!
