I went to a Sam's club in my area and asked the bakery dept. if they carry Pantry Pride, the product that has been recommended for making a Bavarian Cream filling on CC recipe site. They don't carry it here. Is there anything else I can use as a substitute for this product. I need a cream filling that doesn't require refrigeration!! Does anyone have any suggestions??? I need a recipe soon!!!!!!!!
Try going to your cake decorating supply store and getting the bavarian cream that they carry thats in the plastic sleeve that can be left at room temperature.
hi ! if you have a smart&final store close to you is the only part that you going to find it ,i found my pantry pride only there nobody else carry this product
My Sam's Club carries the large buckets of (Ready to Use) Rich's Bettercreme.
If you asked for Pastry Pride they might not have been able to help you because that's not the product they use. You might want to try the bakery again, but ask them what brand of non-dairy whipped frosting/filling they use. Even if it's not Pastry Pride, it should be comparable and a lot cheaper than ordering either PP or RBC online and paying for delivery.
Thanks for your responses. I went to Sam's and they had two products, But R Creme which tastes more like regular Buttercream and the other was Bet R Creme which tastes more like a light whipped cream icing. The woman who ordered the cake wants a vanilla cream filling that is similar to the Bavarian cream. I'll check to see if I have a cake supply store in my area where I can buy the sleeves of Bavarian cream. I was hoping I would be able to make the version on this recipe site but if I can't find the Pantry Pride, I'm out of luck. I might try experimenting with some buttercream icing and add a box of instant vanilla pudding and vanilla flavoring to it. :-0 Do you think that would work?????
What about making the Twinkie Like filling. I use this all the time and never refrigerate it (I make it the day before) and it is fine.
If you're looking for a taste similar to Bavarian cream you have a couple of options:
Mix some whipped cream into vanilla pudding
Find a recipe for the cream part of a Boston Cream Pie (cake)
Dawn makes an icing/filling called But-R-Creme:
(Couldn't find any info on Dawn Bet-R-Creme.)
Rich's makes an icing/filling called Bettercreme:
(Different spelling of Bet-R-Creme...)
Rich's Bettercreme is a non-dairy whipped topping/icing that is comparable to Pastry Pride.
You can make a shelf stable faux bavarian cream using ShirleyW's recipe and Rich's Bettercreme:
Only difference betweens Sam's Bettercreme and Pastry Pride is that the Sam's Bettercreme is Ready-to-Use (prewhipped) while Pastry Pride and liquid Bettercreme require whipping....

The Bavarian Cream Recipe I've seen on this site says to take 2 cups of liquid Pantry Pride and whip it. I'm wondering what the equivalent amount of Sam's Club already whipped Bettercream Icing would be to the 2 cups liquid Pantry Pride?? I appreciate all the help you have been giving me.
