I am making a chocolate version of the WASC cake (which will be covered in white fondant). I need an idea for a filling because chocolate/ganache filling seems like too much chocolate for such a dense chocolate cake. Does anyone have any recipes for something that works well with chocolate yet isn't as rich as ganache?
I like raspberry fruit filling for chocolate cakes...
IThe sleeved raspberry pastry fillings are good (quick and easy) but you can make your own.
Here are some CC recipes:
(The small amount of alcohol renders the filling shelf stable for a few days.)
Easy & Tasty Cream Cheese filling:
(This is great alone when using a rich frosting, or layered with a fruit filling when frosting with an American b/c.)
Just wanted to say thank you for always being a great member on CC and helping everyone out. The best thing is that you can always find what someone is lookig for!! You amaze me =)
Chocolate mousse is always good.. it's light and if you make it with dark chocolate it can help cut the sweetness of the cake.
Thanks all! I tried posting a thank you note sooner but I kept having problems with my posts online. Either way, I really appreciate all of your help!
