Angel Food Cupcakes with Surprise Ingredient Frosting

My friend's birthday celebration is tomorrow at work and I wanted to make her something similar to her favorite dessert, which is Strawberry Shortcake. I decided to make Angel Food Cupcakes, but I didn't want to just put Cool Whip on top. I found a recipe for Cool Whip Frosting that was perfect. The cupcakes are courtesy of a Betty Crocker mix! The Frosting recipe was found at Cooks.com. It is so easy to make. All you have to do is combine 1 cup Cool Whip, 1 cup low fat or skim milk, and 1 package instant vanilla pudding. The result was a light and creamy frosting with a wonderful vanilla flavor. I am going to use this frosting idea in the future. I am thinking of using butterscotch pudding to make a frosting for some pumpkin cupcakes.

I always prefer to use a cake mix for Angel Food Cakes because otherwise I'm stuck with a whole bunch of egg yolks, and what am I going to do with them all? I love your frosting recipe, too! I know someone who does something similar and it was spectacular. The typical buttercream type icings get a little old after a while.

These look like divine little bites from heaven! There is a recipe on the Kraft website for an "Angel Lush" cake. It involves angel food cake and a filling similar to your frosting with the addition of crushed pineapple. So good!
