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 Â½-3 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.
