Does anyone have a good recipe for peanut butter filling that can stand a 3-hour drive in a car? It's for a mad hatter cake that the customer is picking up and taking home, 3 hours away, and I can't do PB mousse...which is what they wanted...
any tips on some other way to do PB filling?
Do you have access to Frosti Pride? If so, add some PB to that when it's just about all whipped up. I made some a week go and it tasted pretty good and FP is a non dairy product so you won't have to worry .
Well you can do a pudding powder mousse with PB added, but I don't know about a 3 hour drive. Perhaps it could go into the freezer for just 1 hour before they go? You can also mix PB with SMBC/IMBC for a really really good filling that should be pretty stable.
Remember you can always add nonn flavored gelatin to make your filling more stable....1-2 tablespoons for a whole carton of whipping cream
I was thinking more along the lines of a PB buttercream...Can I just add PB to a standard BC (not IMBC) with the butter?
I make a peanut butter buttercream that everybody seems to love. Just replace the butter for peanut butter in the Buttercream Dream recipe. You may need to add more milk to get it nice and creamy. I always get requests for this icing.
There is a recipe on this site by shirley w called peanut butter cup filling. I have used it and it is absolutely delicious!!!! I dont see any reason why it would need refrigeration but you might want to pm her just to be sure. Hope this helps, here is the link
3/4 c. Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
1-1 1/2 c. Confectioner's Sugar
1/4 c. Butter (room temp) (I had salted on hand, thus the need for more than 1 cup sugar)
1/2 tsp Vanilla
2 Tbls Soy Creamer (Use half&half or heavy cream if you wish)
Combine butter, peanut butter and vanilla. I used a whisk, if you have a mixer, use it!.
Add sugar about a 1/4 cup at a time, only so you can taste test for your desired sweetness.
Once well blended, add your creamer until the frosting reaches a nice fluffy smooth, not too gloppy consistency.
Here is a recipe for buttercream
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter
3 cups powdered sugar
2-4 Tbsp. milk
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
In large bowl, combine butter, peanut butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and 2 Tbsp. milk. Mix well, adding more milk as needed to make a fluffy spreadable frosting. Frosts 8" layer cake or sides of 9" layer cake
I just add creamy PB to my buttercream and it is always a big hit!!!
(and it's easy to do! Not another recipe to make!)
HTH!!! Good Luck!!
Thanks to everyone! You guys rock!
Mmm, now I'm totally going to go home and make some PB BC. Or at the very least, eat some peanut butter!
I'm a fan of creaming pb and folding in the ready made philadelphia brand cheese cake in a tub. Quick and stable, but super yummy too!
