I'm making a birthday cake for our school secretary this week. My plan is to do a yellow cake with chocolate filling. I've always done just b/c fillings before. I was looking for something else for this cake but I don't know what. I'm doing the sides with chocolate pencil cookies and blue hydrangeas on the top.

Any suggestions?

Fillings that don't require refrigeration:

Nutella straight from the jar or mixed with a little b/c.

Chocolate cream or chocolate bavarian cream (sleeved pastry filling):

Both are non-dairy, but Cool Whip requires refrigeration while Pastry Pride and Rich's Bettercreme are both shelf stable (for a limited amount of time).

I don't have access to Pastry Pride and there's precious little info available online.

However, Rich's Bettercreme is available in the midwest.
