I found this on all recipes tonight, and I'm gonna try it for the 4rth of July. If anyone else does I would love to hear your feedback.
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
In a medium bowl, combine pudding mix with milk and vanilla.
Mix until smooth. Gently fold in whipped topping until no streaks remain.
Spread evenly over cake.
This makes about 2 cups.
