(good for cakes or cupcakes)
1-3.5oz. box Jell-O vanilla instant pudding (use chocolate pudding if you want chocolate icing)
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup milk
8 oz. Cool Whip (thawed in refrigerator if frozen)
In a mixer, combine pudding mix, powdered sugar and milk. Beat until smooth. Remove from mixer and stir in Cool Whip with a spoon. Keep cakes/cupcakes refrigerated since this icing has milk in it.
