    If I could give this recipe more than five stars,I would! It's so delicious and so easy to make. The amount of frosting it made was perfect for a 2-layer 9-inch cake. As another reviewer noted, it's crucial to use INSTANT pudding mix! Mix that with the milk and sugar until it reaches a pudding consistency. Then, stir in the Cool Whip. Be careful not to over mix.

    Love this recipe! It turned out fantastic. I used heavy whipping ***** instead of milk since I had it on hand. This frosting is the best because it's not overly sweet like most buttercreams or anything that you buy in the store, and there's no need for a mixer, or even a whisk.. I just used a fork. Will definitely be ****** this whenever I need frosting!
