Cheesecake Mousse!!? Is there a recipe on here for that!?




I just whip cheesecake flavored pudding mix in with Frostin Pride as I'm beating it; then I mix in cream cheese (after I've beat it til creamy).

and I just spent the morning adding 25 NEW cake flavors to my list, using many of the ideas from some of MacsMoms flavors. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

Now I need to get back to what I *should* have been doing...quarterlies and a flyer for 700 that my DH needs like yesterday.

You're welcome! I am always working on my cake stuff when I should be doing other stuff - but I refuse to say that is of less importance! icon_cool.gif

If you look at the post you want to quote, in the upper right corner of that post is a button that says, 'quote'. Simply click that, then type UNDER the text that appears.

Digressing to the question about saving the thread, you can also use the "print topic" button at the top of the page to copy each page as a text document. Since there are no pictures involved, you can save room in your hard-drive by using text documents instead of Word docs. The extra room is always handy, in case you fall into the cupcake thread, and want to keep all 1-billion pages. LOL! icon_lol.gif

macsmom your cream cheese with the bettercream recipe, does that require refridgeration?

o.k. I'm starting to get "the feeling" I do when I go into a fabric shop. There are sooo many choices icon_cry.gif I just want to leave. I feel so over whelmed. I decided that is one reason I don't sew. Same thing happens to me when I have to look for jewlery. If I tried to have that many choices of cakes and fillings I would have to make a lot more cakes than I do, have a staff of employees and a big warehouse. See why I'm starting to feel intimidated? I've just barely got to the point that I know exactly how to make the wasc and wasc using a chocolate cake. I'd love to know how to make the LIST of all those other great choices. How do you have the time, money, and people to practice all those recipes on??? O.K. I'm going to have to leave now just like I do after I have been in the fabric store for a few minutes. I bow to you PROS!!! thumbs_up.gif
My head is swimming! icon_cry.gif

It probably should be, but I haven't icon_surprised.gif . It's never made me sick! (It's always been eaten within 8 hrs).

Well, I trust the WASC recipe so much that I haven't actually made every single of those yet But I haven't had any concoction fail me yet!

I did learn, though, that flavored cake mixes can be too sweet, too moist, too dense, so I use cake flour for those and combine a white mix with a flavored mix, as stated earlier.

Chocolate cake mixes tend to blend up thick, so I add more liquid to those. (3 cups as opposed to 2-2/3 cups).

I forgot to add that I think my brain is now hard-wired to recognize new flavor combinations, lol.

Like eating at Sweet Tomatoes and spotting the strawberry lemonade, ordering my favorite sourcream blueberry pie at Marie Calendar's, and my favorite popsicle (Big Missile) which is cherry and pineapple, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, 50/50 bars,...

Anytime I spot something I like, I turn it into a cake flavor!

that's exactly what i do all the time! i tell my customer's when they are trying to figure out what flavor(s) they want, i just ask them what is their favorite dessert, candy bar, ice cream, pie, adult beverage, things like that. frustrating tho when they still go with the regular wasc icon_rolleyes.gif

post #52 of 6475

I'm with MacsMom. No way I've MADE all those combos, or have the time to...I just have them as ideas for great combos I know would work, should someone want them. And I know my base recipes very well, because I've made them all at one time or another, so I know they'll work in these combos.

It just provides some inspiration so the brides have choices to look at so they can get creative with flavors. Otherwise I get orders for...white cake with raspberry filling and chocolate cake with plain buttercream filling. Come on...push me. lol

icon_biggrin.gif Thanks for sharing. I use the bettercreme with the pudding mixes and / or yogurt for fillings.

This is such a great topic, thank you all for the fantastic ideas thumbs_up.gif

I really love pistachios but have not really come across any cake recipes for using them - have two cookie recipes that I make very often. I see here people have mentioned pistachio flavours... would you mind sharing how you use them?

What about everyone's favorite butter creme recipes? What do you change to get great new flavors that compliment all your great cake flavors.

I just add a dram of LoRann flavored candy oil to my BC that matches the cake or filling. There are so many flavors to choose from! In fact, that is another place I get cake flavor ideas from. I want to make a guava cake for my birthday in March...

A dram is = to one teaspoon. LoRann sells tiny little dram-sized bottles.
