  • 1 box Vanilla Instant Pudding
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Shortening
  • 1 cup Marshmallow Creme
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Milk

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place cupcake foils into your cupcake pan.
  • Place your cake mix, eggs, oil, instant pudding, and water into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
  • Fill cupcake foils about 3/4 of the way full.
  • Bake for 20 minutes and let cool.
  • Place your shortening, marshmallow, sugar, milk, and vanilla into a mixing bowl and mix until smooth.
