Showing Off My Baking Skills with Cool Whip Frosting

Cool Whip Frosting Princess Cupcakes

Let me begin by admitting that I’m not what you’d call an “expert” baker. Oh sure, I can whip up a batch of ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookies and I’ve made a pumpkin pie or two for Thanksgiving but I’m no Martha Stewart. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the challenge of using that big, hot box known as the “oven,” but I’ll never create 99 percent of the stuff I drool over on my Pinterest feed.

So when I got the chance to put Kraft Cool Whip Frosting to the test, I chalked it up as a fun opportunity to bake some cupcakes for our two-year-old. Then I realized that they’d be the first homemade cupcakes she’d ever had. Suddenly the pressure was on.

To make the experience extra special, we bought Cinderella on DVD (just released from the Disney vault!) and decided to make not just regular cupcakes, but princess cupcakes. I wasn’t 100 percent sure what “princess cupcakes” would be, but I was pretty sure they’d be pink and sparkly.

Truth be told, I wasn’t even aware that Cool Whip made a frosting. I was definitely aware of their whipped cream, but the frosting was new to me. But when I went to the grocery store, there it was, in the freezer section right next to the rest of the Cool Whip products. It’s available in three flavors – vanilla, chocolate and cream cheese – but I chose the vanilla frosting because I planned to add a little red food coloring to make it pink.

Fast forward a few minutes, and the cupcakes had been baked (none were burnt!) and ready to be frosted. With a little help from a $5 frosting kit and some sprinkles, the cupcakes turned out even better than I had expected.

Unlike regular cake and cupcake frosting, the Cool Whip frosting was much lighter and creamier. It was very much like the Cool Whip whipped cream, but just a little thicker and a little sweeter. What I liked most about it was that it spread very easily. I also liked that it wasn’t as dense as regular frosting, which gave the cupcakes a much lighter, airier taste and texture.

So creamy!

So what did our two-year-old princess think about her princess cupcakes? She loved them, which made this inexperienced baking momma very happy.
