Ive tried searching for this on CC, but the search option isnt working for me.
Customer wants Vanilla pudding as a filling. Do I need to put a thin layer of BC on the cake so the pudding wont seep in? First time putting pudding as a filling and dont want a soggy cake! Advice?
I would just to be on the safe side, I would also probably add less milk making it more of a custardy consistency so it doesn't seep out the sides!
Usually the pudding box will have instructions for making a pie filling (with less milk, as the above poster said). Use those instructions. It'll set up firmer, and won't smoosh out when the cake is sliced. I don't think the buttercream is necessary if you use this method, but go for it if you want.
