Kraft Kitchens Tips

Prepare using JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding.
How to Pipe the Frosting
Fit pastry bag with desired decorating tip. Spoon enough frosting into prepared bag to fill about halfway. Use to pipe frosting onto cupcakes, refilling bag with remaining frosting if necessary. Or if you don't have a pastry bag, you can use a resealable plastic bag instead. Spoon frosting into bag, then cut piece off one bottom corner of bag before using to frost cupcakes.
How to Store
Keep refrigerated.
