"Light and sinful. I had this over 7/4 and it was surprisingly light, delicately sweet and the crust needs tweaking, much to dense. All together - delicious."

"Soft set is almost set. So the pudding is really thick. It's been my experience with instant puddings that you really have to beat them, I tend to use my hand blender or mixer for the best results."

"I tried to make this recipe, I followed the recipe step by step. But the milk and the pudding never soft-set. I tried everything to make it set. What is the definition of soft -set?"
