Has anyone ever tried to use vanilla pudding in their favorite buttercream icing recipe? I know most people are looking for a snow white icing, but what if you were going for flavor instead.
I was thinking of using a couple pf pudding cups in my icing, or try dry pudding mix, but I was afraid it would be dry or gritty tasting. Has anyone done this??
I use the WASC all the time, love it, but wanted a nice smooth icing just for eating to go with it.

I use white chocolate pudding in buttercream all the time. Only use about 2 tablespoons in a 3 cup recipe and it won't be gritty.

thanks Beth, is that liquid (pudding cups) or the powder. I live in Canada and we do not have White Chocolate pudding here.

Let me know what you use and how and I will try our Jello Vanilla,

Thanks

I use the powder and only a couple of Tablespoons per 3 cup batch of buttercream. I would think the liquid pudding cups would be fine, but, you'll need to watch your liquid/dry ratio. I'd probably only use a couple of Tablespoons of the liquid as well at first.

adamsgama I also live in Canada, not sure where you are but if you have a superstore they sell white chocolate pudding powder.

I live in Toronto and we do have (Loblaw's) superstores around me. I will look for them next time I shop.
Thank you both and I will let you know how the icing turns out.

I throw dry pudding in mine all the time. Especially chocolate. Tastes yummy! Just like others said though, you have to adjust liquids or it will be dry and thick.

Are you talking about pudding in the little box...if so, do you get instant or the one you have to cook?
