pudding, frosting and mad science oh my

ok who likes to experiment in the kitchen? Raise your hand! *raises both hands way up high*

I have found a new ingredient to play with: Pudding.

Oh pudding how do i love thee. I have found a way to make a sturdy icing that would be good for cupcakes or cookies.

mix together 1/2 c. powder sugar and about 1-2 tbsp. half and half or whipping cream

put mixture in Either in a double boiler or ina bowl over a pot of simmering water. add aboouuut 1/4 c. butter. whisk until butter is melted and mixture is thin. Add either 1/2 block or 1 block of unsweetened chocolate. constantly whisking until choclate is melted.

remove from heat carefuly as not to burn your hands (made that mistake WOHOO!) . add about 2 more cups of powdered sugar. It's going to be a bit thin SOOOO magic trick.

Take a box of chocolate pudding and begin to sprinkle it onto the mixture and continue to stir until desired thickness is reached. if its too....lost for the proper word but you'll know then add a little bit more half and half and stir. its pretty tastey and not suuuuper sweet. the pudding dulls it down a dash. I liked it anyway.


  1. Sounds tasty, I will have to try this out! I have used pudding in cakes and things but never tried it in a frosting

  3. In response to your question about royal icing:

    You pipe the design on to wax paper and let it harden. Then it is like a candy decoration.

    You're taking Wilton 1 right? If you take Wilton 2 you'll be doing flowers which use the same concept of royal icing on wax paper or parchment and letting them harden for decoration
