Banana pudding frosting is down home, country, and darn-tootin’ spectacular. Using banana pudding frosting is like slathering banana pudding – complete with vanilla wafers – right on top of your cupcakes. I used Ultimate Vanilla Cupcakes, but you could double down on banana and use banana cupcakes.
Banana Pudding Frosting Recipe
Most banana pudding frosting recipes that you’ll find use pudding mix. This frosting is made completely from scratch and has vanilla (or banilla) wafer crumbs mixed right in. Banana pudding frosting is not the type of frosting that will pipe up super tall and look regal and proud, but if you want to wow with taste, give this frosting a go.

The Cupcake Pan
The cupcake pan was gifted to me by temp-tations. The product photo above shows a similar pan they are selling now. This pan is by far the prettiest cupcake pan I own. I used it to serve cupcakes for a baby shower I recently hosted and it made not only a wonderful baking tool, but a lovely serving piece.
