Pudding Frosting

Maureen Maguire


I love this recipe because it's not too sweet. I have used this as a filling for a layer cake and then frosted the cake with a different type frosting. I suggest that you use a large box of pudding and increase the milk to 2 C. if you like a lot of frosting on your tube or layer cakes. Otherwise, it's great for a 9"X13" cake as is.

15 Min


No-Cook or Other


1 box
cooked pudding, any flavor
1 c
1 stick

Directions Step-By-Step

On stove top in a small pot, cook the pudding slowly with the cup of milk. Stir constantly so the pudding doesn't burn. It will become VERY thick! Remove from heat when it comes to a boil.
Once the pudding is removed from the heat, cover the top of it with plastic wrap making sure that it touches the pudding. This is so the pudding doesn't develop a "skin". Let cool completely.
With a mixer, whip the butter until light and gradually add the cooked pudding. Whip until fluffy.
