COOL WHIP Frosting Makes Finding Reasons To Celebrate Easy and Delicious {Prize Pack Giveaway!}

Cool Whip logo
Often when I admit that, strange as it sounds, I don't like cake, people look at me as though I've suddenly sprouted a second head.

But truly, it's not the cake that I don't like, it's the frosting. There's something about traditional, store bought frosting that just seems too sugary for my taste buds that it ends up feeling sticky and sweet in my throat. Don't get me wrong, I still find myself managing to eat more than I need to at various parties and celebrations, but it's just not my thing.

But what's the other option? Not frosting my kids' cakes for their birthdays? Not exactly plausible.

Fortunately, from now on I not only know exactly what frosting to reach for to satisfy my sweet tooth, but I don't even have to wait for a special occasion. Because when it comes to COOL WHIP Frosting, I'm going to be on the lookout for any reason to frost a cake or cupcake and celebrate!

COOL WHIP Frosting

Found in the freezer aisle next to traditional COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, COOL WHIP Frosting is whipped to perfection, making it easy to spread while providing a perfectly sweet touch to your baked goodies. This innovative new frosting is available in Chocolate, Vanilla and Cream Cheese flavors and is a great alternative to canned frosting.

While I would have been perfectly happy testing out COOL WHIP Frosting simply to celebrate it being December or that my kids helped clean up the playroom, we decided to put this right to work on cupcakes for Little Sister B's birthday. Between having a celebration here at home and her party at school, we were counting on these cupcakes to satisfy the sweet tooth of quite a few people!

Cool Whip frosting review

While the Vanilla and Cream Cheese flavors were extremely tempting, we went with the Chocolate COOL WHIP Frosting to go with the chocolate cupcakes. Can you ever have too much chocolate? I think not.

As this frosting is kept in the freezer, preparing it for use just takes minimal forethought. Leave it at room temperature to thaw for an hour or place it in the refrigerator four hours in advance and it will be ready for spreading!

Chocolate Cool Whip frosting

Mmmmmmmmm.

Just as COOL WHIP had proclaimed, this frosting was whipped so light and fluffy that it was easy to spread. I love that it didn't tear into my cupcakes at all and instead was able to be smoothed right on however thin or thick I desired.

Cool Whip frosting cupcakes
I make no claims at actually having any frosting skills!

With the addition of a Gummy Bear and individual clear containers, these cupcakes were perfect to share with all of Little Sister B's friends at her preschool!

birthday cupcakes

Not to mention that all these cupcakes needed were candles and they made for an amazingly delicious birthday celebration here at home as well!

The result of both?

I'm not exaggerating when I say that I had the exact same reaction myself! This COOL WHIP Frosting is my absolute new favorite frosting and I will definitely be using it again in the future! It's just the right amount of sweetness without going overboard — I think the Chocolate tastes like a rich chocolate mousse that, to be honest, I've had a hard time not eating directly out of the container.

YUM!!

No matter how on-the-go our lifestyles can be, COOL WHIP has made it beyond easy (and DELICIOUS) to step back from the chaos and celebrate the little moments in life along with the big. Whether you're having guests over for the holidays, welcoming a new baby to the world or simply are excited about your good hair day, COOL WHIP Frosting can be your secret weapon to delectable desserts in no time at all!
