I saw this on Cooks.com :

1 14-oz can Carnation sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup lime juice

Just combine them and chill. What is your opinion on using this as a filling for a margarita cake?

it sounds like it would be very runny. Maybe something happens when you mix the citrus with the milk.

It sounds like it would taste really good.

I just bought a can of key lime pie filling. I was planning on mixing it with BC.

Let us know how that filling works, at least its not expensive just in cse it doesn't work out.

Here's a key lime filling which sets up quite well, although it does need to be refrigerated until served (it can sit out a few hours ok, but would not recommend it for a wedding cake, etc.)

Key Lime Mousse: makes 2 ½-3 cups

o  1 cup heavy cream
o  1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
o  Â½ cup lime juice
o  1 T (1 packet) gelatin
o  Â¼ cup sugar
o  Grated lime peel
o  1 drop McCormick food coloring (green) â optional


o  Beat heavy cream and sweetened condensed milk until fluffy (3-4 minutes)
o  In small saucepan on low, heat lime juice, gelatin until dissolved
o  Add sugar, stir until dissolved.
o  Add in thin stream to cream and milk. Beat 2-3 minutes. Add lime peel and coloring.
o  Refrigerate to set.

Hope this helps.
