On Thanksgiving, I gave away a pie to someone that had no dessert. Can you imagine that? That was a serious crisis so I had to give them one of ours, lol. That left us missing a dessert though. So I quickly made a red velvet cake. Well, it wasn’t exactly a red velvet cake because I only had about a quarter of the food coloring called for in the recipe. Oh, and I didn’t here the timer go off when it was baking, so I kind of overcooked it, oops. Anyway, I put the cake in the oven and realize that I had no powdered sugar for frosting. So, I look in the fridge and I had whipping cream. Out it came to make the frosting. But I didn’t have any sugar still. So, I dig in the pantry and find a vanilla pudding mix box. I whipped about 1-1/2 cups of the cream almost and then I added in the pudding mix. It tastes really yummy. And it is very stable. It isn’t too sweet it is just right. I did overbeat it a bit, so I would add the mix in sooner next time. But I will definately be making this frosting again sometime. It came out pretty thick, so I think it would be great to be piped onto a cake for decorating.
I would show a picture, but my camera is being weird. I can only get a few pictures out of it before it says the batteries are dead. Even with new batteries, sigh. Oh well.
