Hello.... I'm fairly new to this cake decorating thing. I'm kind of bored w/my buttercream and was wondering today if I added in a package of instant vanilla pudding if it would flavor it and make it nice or if it would make it nasty? Any ideas????

TIA

Well, I don't know about frosting, but I've used a Raspberry Mousse filling recipe that used vanilla pudding as a base and it was just divine! =)

I use instant vanilla pudding quite a bit... it's a wonderful filling in a standard white/vanilla cake! I don't add it to buttercream, though.... I mix it with heavy cream, @ 2 cups. instant vanilla pudding, throw in some vanilla bean paste and it's a decadent, mousse-like filling!!
I also use it as a dip for fruit.... just use more cream and make the mixture thinner!!

I wouldn't do it. I think it would be gross and gritty. Plus, the vanilla instant pudding is yellow.

I have whipped instant pudding with heavy whipping cream for family cakes. Actually, I am doing that Saturday for my grandfather's cake. Both of my grandparents are very old and both have compromised immune systems, so I'm not making the usual IMBC.

Ah, yes. If you're going to try it, I'd suggest making the pudding first, and then add it to the frosting....
