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???

  1. I often see your recipes and will try them out and am happy to say that I'm a fan of them! This cake and frosting remind me of my birthday cakes. For the last 34 years, I have always had an Angel Food cake with Cool Whip frosting, it is my favorite still. I've never heard of adding a box of pudding mix to the topping though! That's brilliant! Something that I'm now going to have to try! Thanks for sharing Ü
