How to Put Pudding in the Middle of a Cake

By Pamela Martin

Placing pudding between the layers of a cake provides a change in taste from traditional frosting. You can use made-from-scratch pudding, an instant mix or even pudding cups. On busy days, use a frozen pound cake and pre-made pudding to create a quick treat for a family dinner.

Add a creamy surprise to your cake by layering it with pudding.

Step 1

Bake the cake according to the recipe instructions for two layers. Remove it to a cooling rack and allow it to cool thoroughly.

Step 2

Mix the pudding and milk thoroughly. Place the mix in refrigerator to thicken.

Step 3

Place one cake layer on the workspace. Carefully slice the layer horizontally with the serrated knife. Repeat with the second cake layer.

Step 4

Spread one-third of the pudding mix on the bottom piece of one cake. Top it with the remaining piece. Repeat with the other cake.

Step 5

Place one cake on the serving plate. Spread the remaining pudding on top. Place the second cake on the pudding.

Step 6

Frost the cake as desired.
