Cool whip as frosting... ?

I'm making cupcakes for my daughters bday and it calls to frost them with cool whip instead of frosting.

Will it get runny if left room temperature for a little while? I don't want to frost them all last minute because of this possibility.

They're devil's food oreo cheesecake cupcakes.. if there's any other suggestions with what I can top them with. Thanks.

  • You can ask over at Cake Central.  It's free to sign up.  It's a site for professional and beginner cake bakers/decorators.  Ask them in one of the forums.  You will get lots of replies,  guaranteed!


    By the way, your cake sounds delicious!  Not sure about the Cool Whip.  I used it once on cupcakes, and it just didn't taste as fresh as it should have.

  • Room temperature won't bother them for a little while, especially if they are refrigerated until needed. If they sat in the sun in very hot weather, it would be a problem.

  • can you add a little bit of regular frosting to the cool whip, maybe it wont get runny.

  • Frost them and keep in the fridge. Or just sprinkle with powdered sugar. I wouldn't use frosting, it may be too sweet.
