Since this recipe calls for a french vanilla pudding mix, you have to use a small box and use it dry. In addition to that, use two french vanilla pudding mix boxes, add 2 tsp of the second box to the buttercream. Keep in mind to have all your ingredients at room temperature, and never microwave the butter because it will cook unevenly. As a result, you will have much more cake batter than usual, so it is best to avoid overfilling it.
In addition to that, packaged dry pudding mix can last for several months exceeding its expiration date. It is conditional on the matter of the kind, thickening agent, and packaging storage method. On the other hand, prepared pudding can last at least a week in the fridge.
Likewise, make sure to store dry mix and packaged pudding in a cool and dry place. Also, keep in mind when items undergo temperature change, the moisture in the air usually condensates inside the packages. For this reason, it will allow molds to grow on your pudding, resulting in spoilage. That is why if you purchased it on the shelf, then you can continue to keep it on the shelf. Whereas, if you bought it in the refrigerator section, you must store it in the refrigerator.
