Adding instant pudding to butter cream

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I was looking for a way to tone down the sweetness of buttercream. Looked in my pantry and saw instant cheesecake pudding and thought, why not. I poured a little in, and voila! It tasted great and was really easy to smooth. Has anyone else tried this?

I tried it once but dissolved it in some water first. So you just dumped it straight in and it wasn't gritty? If that's the case I'm totally game. I find adding a little lemon or lime juice cuts the sweetness. Not enough to make it lemon flavor thoughicon_smile.gif

Yep, I dumped it in dry. Has anyone else tried it?

I have dissolved banana pudding mix in water first and added it for a quick and easy banana creme BC icing, loved it with chocolate cake!

I used to add it to store brought icing when my daughter was younger ... Gives it a whole new texture and taste. It was always a hit when I did it. I haven't added it to my BC yet

Did you use the whole small box of pudding mix? Or just a little bit? How do you know how much to put in?

I made a double batch of BC and just added a whole, small box. I was just playing around with it to see what it would do and that ratio seemed to be about right. Like I said, it had a great texture and I'll be trying it again for sure!

Does any know if the chocolate fudge pudding mix would be good to add to the buttercream instead of adding cocoa?

When I add the banana it is just enough to get the flavor I want, add a little and tastes icon_smile.gif I always dissolve in water or it will be gritty

I dumped a box of butterscotch in a batch of SMBC once to see what would happen. I only tried a bit but loved it. I iced a cake for a birthday party with it and everyone complimented the flavor and texture of the icing!

i have used the no bake cheesecake. I mixed the no bake cheesecake mix with 1/2 of the liquid, let it set and then added it to the buttercream. only thing is it has a shorter shelf live than regular buttercream. HTH
