Kraft Kitchens Tips

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