This has to be refrigerated, right? I'd love to find a filling that is creamy for a wedding cake filling that does not require refrigeration after filling and finishing the cake. Any ideas?
This was awesome. Used this as a filling for a chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. Very simple, very good.
Do you just toss in the pudding powder dry or mix it as the package says before hand ,then toss it in the mixer with all the rest of the ingredients? Thanks :)
specialkay14 - normally you follow the recipe (like above) as stated. You only follow the directions on the box if the recipe calls for you to do so. This is esp true for cake mix extender recipes too. Do not follow the box instructions and then follow the recipe above or you will end up with a soupy mess.
I just made this today. FABULOUSLY yummy and super easy. This is a keeper. Thank you CakeladyatLA. :)
I am assuming this is Jello Instant Pudding? Or is it regular?
mmmmm! i used cookies and cream pudding mix and added a few broken up oreos. i could have just eaten like half the recipe by itself :) i used it to fill a chocolate cake frosted in buttercream. so good!
i use instant pudding and just replace the milk called for with heavy whipping cream. Everyone just LOVES it and it is so easy, you can do a ton of different flavors.
Over the top Yum and Fun. Used it as a Mousse and cake filling. Thank you.
Does the cake have to be refrigerated with this filling?
I would think so....since you are using dairy products.
I use this all of the is fantastic! I use a non-dairy topping (pastry pride) instead of heavy whipping cream. I do use milk to thin out, but have let it sit out with no problem what so ever!
This is very delicious, but I thought using vanilla instant pudding made it too yellow to look like vanilla. Next time I think I'll try the white chocolate or something with a whiter color.
Has anyone tried to add Bailey's or kahlua to this filling???
I've made pudding shots with various kinds of alcohol and a similar recipe and it sets fine, I use instant pudding mix, add 2 c heavy cream and whisk and then after about 30 seconds add the liquor (to taste). Some favorite flavor combinations are cheesecake pudding with Tequila Rose; Chocolate pudding with caramel liquor, oreo pudding with Baileys, Chocolate fudge pudding with Kahlua, Vanillla pudding with Triple Sec, Cointreau or Chambord. Good luck!
I made this recipe last night but used Cookies and Cream Pudding mix instead of Vanilla. I didn't want to fill my cake with it because it was so good I wanted to eat the entire bowl! The cake does taste fabulous with this filling. I will certainly use this again soon!
I love this recipe! I also fold in 1 cup of marshmellow fluff to it and it is soooo good. It adds an extra sweetness and stability for a filling! Making it today with chocolate pudding, chocolate cake and mocha buttercream.
YUM!!! This is so delicious and sooo easy! I used vanilla pudding and crushed up some oreos for an oreo filling. I almost had to make another batch b/c I "sampled" a little too much from the bowl. Thank you so much for the recipe!!!!
Does this mousse not ooze out between the layers of cake?
Cakeladyla, what was used for the cheese cake filling at costco. I have looked for a recipe for a long time and can not find it. I make/decorate cakes myself and will buy a costco cake with the cheese cake filling just to have at home. I would love to know if you can share. My email is thanks noni ;0)
