Does anyone know how this is if made ahead? I would think it needs to be refrigerated, would I then just remix? How long would cupcakes be able to be out without refrigeration if I used for cupcake filling?
Thanks for any help

this is my favorite filling... i make mine ahead and refrigerate, but make sure its covered well cuz it will develop a "skin" like pudding does... you can leave cupcakes and cakes filled with them out for a few hours, just like you can regular cream cheese...

OH ! Quick question about it...... is it 'slippery" ? Do I need a bigger dam ? I do not want the layers to be sliding around....

Thank you so much for the quick replies! This does help. My first attempt at filling cupcakes, so just wanted to be sure.

If you let it set up in the frig for about 15-20 mins and then fill the cake, it will be firm. I like to fill my cakes when they are partially frozen...keeps them more stable, less chance of oozing.

i use this all the time! i just make a crusting cream cheese and add in my marshmallow cream...you will obviously need more powdered sugar, but it's really good!!!!!!!! i don't worry about refrigeration because it has such a high sugar content.

oh, vixen..... the recipe posted on the board here doesn't call for powdered sugar..... that is why I wondered about the "slippery" factor......

8 oz Strawberry Cream Cheese
7 oz Marshmallow Fluff
Dash of strawberry extract or strawberry flavoring

Mix softened cream cheese, fluff, and flavoring well. Will be a creamy texture - use as a filling.

I didn't have any strawberry flavoring, so I sprinkled some strawberry Jello in it, and it brought out the strawberry flavor, and made it more pink........... YUMMY stuff !

i always add p.s. because i use it as my signature icing, not just for a filling. you can't add all that extra "moisture" and not have problems. i've been using this for about 2 years now. i lovelovelove that dip, can eat it by the bowl with strawberries!, so i was just thinking one day on how i could incorporate that with a strawberry cake....i just made it up as i went along.
