One of my favorite things to bake is cake. This is my favorite recipe for a light, whipped cream frosting which is a nice change up every so often from sugary, rich buttercream. This recipe is super easy to make, and the best part is you can change up the flavor depending on the type of Jell-O you choose. I love making a strawberry cake and making the cheesecake version of the whipped frosting. It’s so good! I always get rave reviews whenever someone tries this frosting!
I also love that I can easily pipe designs with it. Buttercream can sometimes be hard to squeeze out of the icing bag, but not only is this easy to decorate with, it holds up beautifully. Rosettes are one my favorite easy designs to use for a cake. I used the Wilton 1M Tip for the rosettes on this 6 inch cake.
1 quart heavy whipping cream
1 box (3.4 oz 4 1/2 serving size) instant Jell-o pudding any flavor (I usually use the cheesecake flavor)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
In a large mixing bowl add the quart of heavy whipping cream and Jell-O pudding dry mix. Beat on medium speed until the mixture starts to get thick and gradually add the powdered sugar. Continue to beat until the mixture is thick and creamy and still spreadable. To color the frosting I use Americolor gels, linked below:
