The fluffiest Pumpkin Frosting made with Pumpkin Spice Pudding! It’s just sooo fluffy!
I’ve been known for scraping the frosting off of the top of cakes or cupcakes (anything frosted really). I’ve been caught red-handed swiping it off and leaving the cake bare. Not my finest moments, but yeah, I kind of like frosting. Big deal. I have a friend though, who loves frosting even more than I do (hi Megan!). Growing up, she kept jar of it under her bed with a spoon. You know, for those middle-of-the-night, early morning frosting cravings. I thought of her when I made this frosting. I imagined us sitting down on the couch, popping in a chick flick and eating a bowl of this frosting with our spoons. It’s just so fluffy and yummy you will die.
This frosting is yet another reason why you should stock up on some Jell-O Instant Pumpkin Spice Pudding. In case you need reminding…
Reason #1- Pumpkin Lust Cake. Reason #2- Chocolate Chip Pecan Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies. Reason #4- Rolo Stuffed Pumpkin Spice Pudding Cookies. And now you have reason #4- the best darn pumpkin frosting everrrr.
Soft, fluffy, thick and creamy. And pumpkin spicy. Perfect for you pumpkin + frosting lovers like me. Pile it high on cakes, cupcakes (I just used a box mix for these), brownies, sugar cookies. You name it. Or have girlfriend over and grab two spoons:)
- 1 pkg (3.4 oz) Jell-O Instant Pumpkin Spice Pudding
- 8 oz Cool Whip
- 1 cup milk, cold
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- Beat pudding mix, milk, sugar and vanilla together, about two minutes. Gently fold in cool whip. Pipe onto cupcakes, cake, brownies, etc.
- I recommend doubling if you want a thick layer of frosting!

I love how fluffy this frosting is! I’m pretty sure I would be eating it by the spoonfuls!!
um WOW. I want to eat this frosting with a spoon!
I just might have!! Thanks Carrie!
Wow!! This looks REALLY incredible! Like, I just just face plant into a bowl of the stuff and just skip the cupcake!!
This frosting looks really good… Then I made this recipe and it was pure soup. I don’t know if something went wrong but it defiantly was not fluffy or puffy at all. 🙁 I was able to fix it, turned it into a buttercream and it was good but it took some effort.
Hi! I made this frosting today but it was kinda on the runny side. How could I of fixed it? I have just stuck it back in the fridge for a while to thicken up.

I made this recipe today to put on a birthday cake with the same soupy result. I feel really let down from something that seemed so fool proof.
I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out for you, that’s always frustrating. I’ve had success with it each time!
Mrs Hand says
I made it again using the original Kraft recipe directions with the desired result. The key is to fold in the cool whip. It should not be mixed.
I’ll make a not of that!

So excited to make this – looks delicious! Do you think I could sub homemade whipped cream in for the cool whip?
If you do try it, I would make sure it’s chilled well and little more “set”
