    My packet of pudding says to cook for few minutes… My question is do I have to cook n thn pour or I should skip cooking the pudding?

      You have the wrong type of pudding. You purchased cook and serve pudding and you need the instant pudding. Sorry!

    Hi Brandie–

    I purchased Duncan Hines Whipped Chocolate Frosting by accident instead of the usual “thick” frosting. Will melting the whipped chocolate frosting work?

      Hi JJ – it will still work. Just don’t warm it up for too long. Keep a close eye on it. You want it to be easily spreadable but not hot so it will set up as it cools. Hope that makes sense!

    I’m not sure what I did wrong when making the pudding. It was very watery. I followed all directions and still put the frosting on it. .

      Hi Heather! It sounds like you made the cook & serve pudding (which needs to be cooked on the stove first) instead of the instant pudding :/

    I was searching Google in the middle of the night for a easy, pudding dessert. I saw this recipe come up . I knew I had found the one! Thanks to online grocery ordering and
    pick-up I had all the ingredients for dinner and dessert by 9::30 am. The cake is in the refrigerator chilling but I don’t think it’ll make it till tomorrow for my Husband and I to taste test. I garnished my cake with fresh strawberries it looks scrumptious!

    I made this last night and covered it with a plastic cover in the fridge. Today when I took the cover off– the frosting was wet and runny. It ran right off the pudding. It tasted wonderfully, but what did I do wrong? Should I not have covered it? I cooled it for at least 2 hours, but I still got condensation under the cover and I it dripped onto the frosting making it runny. It is fluid and did not harden. That’s the only thing I can think of. Does any one have any suggestions?

      Hi Dolores, yes, it sounds like it was covered when everything wasn’t totally cooled. Heat is the only thing that would cause condensation on the plastic wrap. There is no need to cover it while in the fridge until you’ve already sliced it. I am so happy you enjoyed it though!! 🙂
