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!
