I remember reading about this in another thread a while ago. A lady said that she put a pudding mix in her frosting and that it tasted good. She however say that it made it a little bit more grainy than usual.

I've wondered the same thing. Let me know what you find out, please. And which BC recipe you used.

I was given a recipe by a friend that while I do not feel free to share it on here w/o her blessing, I will say that in it she uses hot water with the ingredients and maybe what ever liquid besides flavoring that is in that recipe could be made warm or hot and dissolve the pudding it might help it not to be grainy and of course the powdered sugar would help thicken the icing the rest of the way. W/o knowing what recipe you used and w/o feeling comfortable about sharing hers w/o asking I can't say a bunch more. Hopefully you will find a way to make it smooth and tastes smooth w/o too much fiddling with it. Good luck.

I did it and loved the taste but yes it was grainy. I would probably add it too some warm water to dissolve it first and then add it as my liquid next time. That should keep it from being too grainy.

Yeah, maybe make a really thick pudding (1/2 maybe 1/4 of the milk called for?) and add it instead of the liquid called for in your recipe...
