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.

    Very tasty . However, I don’t know if I did something wrong but the batter was very thick and I only used 1oz of pudding, not the 3oz that the recipe calls for. Maybe because I mixed the cake mix then added the pudding? The thickness made it quite hard to put the cake mix in the cupcake pan and then they deflated as they cooled. The topping covered that up though. all in all, I would make it again.
