For best results, put the mixing bowl (stainless steel is the best) you will be using to make the frosting in the freezer for at least an hour prior to making your Pistachio Whipped Cream Frosting.  Add the whipping cream to the cold bowl.  Mix on high and until soft peaks form. and then add the powdered sugar. Continue to mix on high. Just before you get to stiff peaks add the Pistachio Pudding mix.  Lower to a slow speed and continue to mix the whipping cream and the pudding.

When the Pistachio Whipped Cream Frosting starts to come together, stop the mixer and scrape down the sides.  Also check to make sure the pudding hasn’t clumped on the bottom. Fold the mixture a couple of times with a spoon. Turn the mixer back on for just a few revolutions.  DO NOT OVER MIX or you will end up with pistachio butter!  If the frosting gets too thick add a little bit of milk 1 teaspoon at a time.

How much frosting will you need?  That always depends on how thick or thin you apply the frosting or how much decorating you do but here are a couple of guidelines. Our recipe should make enough Pistachio Whipped Cream Frosting to cover a 9″ x 13″ sheet cake or a two-layer 8″ cake.  If you are making cupcakes, you should be able to frost 24 cupcakes if you apply the frosting with a knife.  If you swirl on the frosting with a pastry bag like we have done here, you should be able to frost 15-18 cupcakes depending on the size of the swirl.
