mixing jello with buttercream

by Tammie
(Hollister, NC)

you recently sent me a recipe to make strawberry frosting. I used this technique with the whipping cream and strawberry jello mix and it worked great.

So I tried using some jello pudding mix, adding it to a batch of buttercream, folding it in with the powdered sugar. one time I used banana cream jello pudding mix and one time I used lemon jello pudding mix. they both had a really great taste, but they were gritty. It was almost like the pudding mix didn't dissolve or something.

Is this technique only supposed to be used with jello gelatin mix or can it be done using the jello pudding mix as well? If so what did I do wrong?

Please help me I need this frosting to put on a cake for tonight. thanks

Mixing Jello With Buttercream

Hi Tammie,

I've never had that happen, but one way to solve the problem would be to mix the pudding with the milk rather than the powdered sugar. That way it will be fully dissolved before you add it to the buttercream.
