I have a three tiered wedding cake with bavarian creme filling to do. When I agreed to do it, I didn't realize that the bavarian creme would need to stay refrigerated. I really don't have a lot of refrigerator room, so I'm not sure what to do. Especially because I wanted to have it completely stacked and everything ahead of time, and I know I can't fit that in my fridge. Also, the cake will be sitting out at the reception hall as well. Is there a way to do bavarian creme that's stable? I've seen commercially prepared bavarian creme for sale, but I'm not sure if it can be left out. Suggestions would be very much appreciated.
The stuff in the plastic packaging can probably be left out (check the package). The real thing needs to be refrigerated.
Once the packaged filling is opened, it does require refrigeration.
I have used the commercial bavarian for yrs and yrs and never frig'd the cakes. No problem.
There is a mock bavarian cream on here posted by ShirleyW in the recipes section, if you have concerns about using the sleeve filling. I've tried it and although I don't care for it on its own (I'm not a fan of dairy substitutes) it worked quite well in the cake and I know it was one of her most popular fillings. Of course you have to live somewhere where you can get your hands on some Pastry Pride.
Thanks so much for your help!
