I am making a red velvet cake for a haunted mansion cake. The house will be made out of dark chocolate (hopefully with raspberry flavoring). I am either leaving the cake just butter cream or covering it with modeling chocolate. What kind of filling should I use in the cake? Your suggestions will be helpful
Not sure I understande you ? I guess you are putting a choco house on top of a red v elvet cake?
I suggest one of the following:
Choco mousse OR raspberry OR cream cheese mousse OR bavarian cream.
my vote is cream cheese filling.. don't have a recipe.. but usually we take cream cheese filling nad mix it with the icing.. aWESOME!
Thank you for the suggestions.
Just to clear up I am making a chocolate house to put on top of the cake.
the chocolate will have raspberry flavoring.
Cakeeatier, Toba Garrett has the best cream cheese filling recipe in her book The Well Decorated Cake that I have ever tasted.
We just tried a cream cheese recipe tonight with red velvet mini cupcakes.
1. Cream 8 oz cream cheese with 1/2 stick butter.
2. Add 1 tsp vanilla extract.
3. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar in 1/2 cup increments.
I agree use cream cheese filling with the red velvet cake. I usually add pecan to the filling for mine.
Thank you for the suggestions. I used just butterceam & it came out wonderfully.
