This mousse is extremely easy to prepare and very versatile. You can use any flavor of instant pudding. I usually use white chocolate or cheesecake flavors but feel free to be creative. It adds a lot of richness to cakes and cupcakes, keeps them moist, and helps to cut some of the sweetness of the frosting.

How to Make Mousse for layered cakes or cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Add cream to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place (you can also use a hand mixer). Whip the cream on medium to high speed until it begins to thicken to soft peaks.
  2. Turn mixer down to low and add powdered sugar and pudding packet. Mix until well combined and desired texture is reached. I like mine to be just a little more sturdy than a soft peak.
  3. Cool until ready to use.

    I use it to pipe into the center of cupcakes with a pastry bag or spread it between layers of a layered cake. Enjoy!
