A friend of mine requested a light whipped cream mousse-like frosting for her Mother's Day cake. This is what I came up with. If you are looking for a white frosting use clear vanilla and white chocolate pudding. It does require refrigeration.

To cook Whipped Cream Mousse Frosting, you need about 10 minutes of preparation time. The following are the steps to cook Whipped Cream Mousse Frosting easily:

  1. 1 Beat the whipping cream, instant pudding mix, milk, and vanilla extract together with an electric hand mixer in a large bowl until soft peaks start to form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the mixture will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak.
  2. 2 Fold the whipped topping into the whipping cream mixture to evenly mix. Refrigerate until ready to use.
