Hi-
I have a request for a cake and she wanted a hazelnut or hazelnut/almond filling. Does anyone have a recipe for this? Is there such a thing?

Thank You,

Kelly

Nutella! Nutella! Nutella! I mix about a 1/2 cup into my SMBC and use it for the filling. So delicious!

Nutella is so yummy! It's a chocolate hazelnut spread. MMMM!!!

Solo makes a canned Almond filling which is not chocolate. It's in the baking aisle with the canned pie filling.

Thanks for the help! Does the cake have to be refridgerated after filling it with the nutella?

Nutella doesn't have to be refrigerated.

I created my own cinnamon-hazelnut filling.

1 cup butter
1 lb powdered sugar
1/2-3/4 cup toasted hazelnuts, finely chopped
1/4-1/2 cup cinnamon-hazelnut coffee creamer (or just the hazelnut if you can't find the other)
1-2 t cinnamon
1/2 t hazelnut extract (if you can find it)

Beat butter and powdered sugar. Add hazelnuts and cinnamon, and enough creamer to easily spreadable consistancy.

It's to die for icon_biggrin.gif.

Oh it is FABULOUS, beachcakes icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif. It's wonderful in a white cake or cinnamon cake. I have great success pairing it with my "famous" chai cake.

hey - funny you mention chai cake. I bought a can of International delights chai powder, thinking it would be a great cake! But I haven't gotten around to making it yet! And i wasn't sure what to pair with it as a filling. How do you do your chai cake?

I use a box mix of white or french vanilla. I brew an extra-strong amount of tea and substitute it equally for the water called for on the box.

It's my most-requested cake.

Thanks Missmegs, that does sound yummy! I'm assuming because of the butter and creamer it has to be refridgerated. Is this right?
Thank You

I don't icon_wink.gif. Because it's inbetween layers of cake and not exposed to outside air. Stuff like that I give to have a 36-hour room temp window. I just looked over the recipe again, and I probably use 1/4 cup of creamer. The sugar in it makes it shelf-stable, just like BC that uses milk.

Good, because I had a request for a fondant covered cake filled with a hazelnut filling and I'm still a little confused if I can refridgerate fondant (I use the MMF) or not. Some say yes...others say no. And just to make life easy I was looking for something that did not. Can't wait to try it! Thank You for your recipe & help!!! Kelly
