So I've seen that ready-made cheesecake filling in the stores (watch now I won't be able to find it...) and I've wondered about using it for cake balls. Basically, I'm a little lazy and don't want to make cream cheese icing, but I wanted to make some pineapple supreme & red velvet cake balls (from cake mixes) and the only thing I can think of that would be good with those combos is some kind of cream cheesiness... icon_smile.gif

So has anyone tried that stuff in any way? Do you think that would work?

Thanks for posting this question I have been wondering the very same thing. Also wondered if it could be used as the filling in a cake.

well no answers yet - but I bought some and man is it yummy straight out of the tub (had to taste-test first!). I'm going to mix it with some strawberry cake balls and dip them in white chocolate... we'll see how it goes!

The answer is oh yes you can use it in cakeballs and it is yummy!

i don't know about a filling only b/c it might not be very stable.... it might be slippery... but if someone tries it, let the rest of us know!
