Angel Icing

When I was a kid, my mom used to always make angel food cake with this fluffy whipped frosting. It has been YEARS since she made it, but she needed to whip up a cake quickly for my daughter's fifth birthday. For some reason angel food with this easy frosting came to mind.

It's so easy! It's just a 12 oz (the big one) tub of Cool Whip with a small box of Jello Pudding mixed in! 

And it even looks pretty!

As we were discussing how good this frosting STILL is, we were talking about how many different Jello Pudding mixes there are from the "dark ages" (ie the 80s) when she used to make it. One of these days I'm going to test out some of the other flavors -- Pistachio? Pumpkin? Oreo Cream? Can you even go wrong???

Lemon Meringue S'mores

We had a little a little back to school party tonight, and it was super fun! I "borrowed" an idea from Pinterest to make Lemon Meringue S'Mores by subbing lemon curd for the usual chocolate. OMG. So good! I'm usually not a fan of S'mores because, even as much as I like sweets, they are too sweet! But...I can get in to Lemon Meringue S'mores. Delicious!
