Hello Everyone..

I added Cho. Chips to my buttercream for filling and it was a big hit.. What else could I add?? I tried looking it up under receipes, but I wasn't using the correct wording..

Could I use Oreos' or would they get soggy?

I mix buttercream about 1/2 and 1/2 with jams (like Smucker's strawberry jam) and it's delicious. Cracker Barrel Country store sells a seedless raspberry jam that's my very favorite - but I can't remember the brand name.

melted chocolate, peanut butter, nut pastes (hazelnut, pistachio, etc), coffee extract, crushed oreos, jams, purees... the possibilities are endless really.

Refigeration isn't necessary when adding jam to bc as far as I know. My most popular non perishable filling is cookies & cream. Crushed oreos mixed with bc! YUMMMM!

how about crushed up heath bar or snickers candy or butterfinger.....ANYTHING can be added. Go to the ice cream isle and look at the Ben & Jerry's flavors - you can put anything they would put into their ic into your bc. Have fun with it icon_biggrin.gif

In my chocolate cake I just made I melted some strawberry spread and mixed it w/ the buttercream. It tasted great.

Yes, any fillings made with jams, jellies, and preserves require the cake to be refrigerated since they can mold/ferment at room temperature very quickly.

I love this thread... I tend to always do plain buttercream as the filling... These are great ideas!

Thank you!

One of the most popular we do has vanilla bc with butterscotch chips and a generous drizzle of dulce de leche...scruptious.

Try the Strawberry Butter Cream (the recipe is on this site)... it is the biggest hit every time I serve it.

There are "toppins" in the icecream isle... when I have to do a small amount of cookies and cream BC filling then I use the oreos in that little bottle... also.. the reeses toppings are very good...

Peanut butter
caramel topping
hot fudge topping...

crushed up malted milk balls is also very good icon_smile.gif

**lutie - I looked up the receipe for Strawberry Butterream, and I'm going to try and make it, I have a question.. The receipe calls for 1 over-flowing Tablespoon Creme Bouquet. What is Creme Bouquet and where do I get it?

Thanks again

Creme bouquet is a flavoring. You can buy it at most cake supply stores or online. I know countrykitchensa.com sells it. Globalsugarart.com probably does too.

I think mini M&M's or something similar would be great, and kids would love the rainbow they would make in the bc!!

The Creme Bouquet can be ordered from Global Sugar Art (that is where I bought mine and they are really fast on shipping!), but there is a recipe for it on the CC forums which a lot of people are using... of course, I found it AFTER I had ordered three bottles of the Creme Bouquet icon_lol.gif

Creme Bouquet Recipe

1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp (clear) vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp butter flavoring

It really gives it a nice flavor... I think you will really like it... all my my catering customers love it and request it over and over... you can change the fruit in the recipe .... just buy different preserves! Please let me know how you liked it... Please?

Dulce de leche is a caramelised condensed milk widely used in Argentina. It is a convienet way of adding a caramel flavor to condensed milk instead of cooking it yourself (and perhaps burning it along the way!) You can add rum to the cake to make it more authentic. Also any butter cake with lemon and a generous drizzle of this - heaven! Cheersicon_smile.gif

Flavored non-dairy coffee creamer works great.
