We had another birthday celebration this past weekend. This time for my loving husband. We had a nice long relaxing day in which we did just about nothing. For us, it was a much needed break. I usually make all of our b-day cakes as I am too cheap to buy a good one from a bakery and the cheap ones at some of the local grocery stores are just not good. But, I also enjoy baking. The kids chose to have a vanilla chocolate swirl cake and my hubby's favorite frosting is a whipped frosting.
I was planning on making the cake from scratch, but ran out of energy. So I pulled out a boxed cake.
This whipped frosting is my favorite as well. Not too sweet. Light and creamy. None of this in on the list of a healthy diet, but necessary every now and again to celebrate.
1 small container whipping cream
1 large box instant vanilla pudding
~1 cup skim milk
~1/2 cup powdered sugar
Start by whipping the cream. Place in stand mixer bowl. Using the whisk attachment, whisk away. I start on a lower speed and kick it up to a med/high speed after the first couple of minutes. Whisk until firm peaks form - usually several minutes.
While that is whipping, in a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
When cream is done, fold in the pudding mixture. And that is it! SOOOO yummy!
This is also good on some graham crackers.
Let me know if you try this frosting on your next cake.
