I have tried the regular cheesecake filling and love it.

Has anyone tried the chocolate cheesecake filling? Also I saw they make Lime Cheesecake filling too, has anyone tried that? How where they?

Last question...what cake flavors would you use with them?

Thanks for any help!!!

I've tried the Key Lime one. Not in a cake, we just put it in a grahan cracker crust. It was good but not very limey tasting.

linda-you used them as a cake filling? I've tried them in graham cracker pie crust and I didn't like it. maybe I should try that at a sampling i have this week.

haven't tried or even seen the key lime. have done the chocolate and it's really good. also, the plain version i have added things to like fresh grated ginger, maple flavoring, etc for fillings in pumpkin cake, carrot cake, etc. very good and versatile

I've used it as a filling and it works fine - it's just expensive since you need more than one container. The chocolate is great!

Thanks for all the help!


hwnhulahands - i did use it as a cake filling. I used the regular cheesecake filling with spice cake and it was great.

I typically use this when I am making a small cake or filling cupcakes. It does cake expensive if I am doing a large cake as MacsMom had said.

I usually make all my fillings but with my two sons running around and being 6 1/2 months pregnant, I have been looking for ways to hit the easy button!

Thanks again!!

I am a new cake maker, so I have a very unseasoned question. How do you fill cakes? Is this something done before you make it or after? Thanks for all your help.

When we say "filling" we are talking about what you put between the cake layers. Growing up, mom used to bake two 2" cakes and slap some buttercream between them before frosting the cake, but there are so many more options these days!

Filling is what goes in between the layers as you are putting the cake together. Example, icing, fruit filling, pudding, etc...
