An Elite/Cool Whip Icing is a creamy and light frosting made with a combination of Cool Whip and other ingredients, such as cream cheese or pudding mix. It is a popular choice for topping cakes, cupcakes, and other desserts.
You can find a variety of Elite/Cool Whip Icing recipes online, on cooking websites, or in cookbooks. You can also check the official Pampered Chef website for recipe ideas.
The best kind of Cool Whip to use for the icing is the original, full-fat version. This will ensure that the icing is thick and stable enough to hold its shape on your dessert.
Yes, you can make Elite/Cool Whip Icing ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. However, it is best to wait until right before serving to frost your dessert for the freshest results.
While Elite/Cool Whip Icing is not as firm as traditional buttercream or cream cheese frosting, it can still be used for piping and decorating. It is best to chill the icing in the fridge for about 30 minutes before piping to help it hold its shape better.
