hi i am look for a cake filling for a fondant cake that i will be making i have been leaning towards this filling but i would like to know if this filling will not get messed up over night if left at room temp
I had the same question - did you ever try it or get an answer?
Hey did anyone ever answer you guys if you could leave it overnight. Also has anyone ever made this recipe?
I made the recipe and it tastes great. It doesn't make a lot, but I have not tried in in a cake yet or leaving it out overnight.
