I am going to be doing my first wedding cake and they would like a white cake with a light chocolately/fudgey filling inbetween the layers. I will be doing a plain buttercream on the outside, possibly fondant too but not sure on that yet. So my question is what is the best chocolate/fudge filling to do in a white cake without it soaking in the cake and making it mushy? Also, if I use fondant I cannot refrigerate it right? So how long can you leave the filled cake out unrefrigerated? Thanks so much! I really appreciate all the help I can get!
do a search for ganache, its a chocolate filling that is quite versatile and can usually stand out at room temp, there are tons of threads and recipes on here, you should be able to find the info you need, hth.
yep, do ganache. You can whip it up and it makes a great filling. It's firm too, so it won't seep into your layers.
I love ganache, but I also have a very simple yummy fudgy filling. Simply melt together 2 cups of chocolate chips with 1 can sweetened condensed milk. Let cool and spread.
Thanks for the help! I appreciate it!
