Where do you purchase your cake filling in sleeves at? Do you purchase online? I would like to keep some on hand just in case. Thanks!
coupon "cakecentral" will save 10%
countrykitchensa.com also sells them... so does thebakerskitchen.net and I think gsa does too
Thank you so much.
I usually order mine from countrykitchensa.com. their prices seem to be the best.
My local cake supply store carries them. I've thought of trying them, but are they any different and better than a canned pie filling? I make most of mine homemade from reducing frozen fruit, or adding premade sauces to my SMBC, so I didn't want to buy an entire sleeve if it's very processed tasting.
Bulk food stores usually carry them. I have a bakery supply buisness in my area that carries them also. I use them all the time. I have tried any flaovr you can think of. yumm!
I actually found some in Party Box, a party supply store.
OMG, I just posted the same question! Yes they are a time saver and taste great! I would not make my own anymore.
I use them all the time. All. The. Time.
The best part is that they are shelf stable (do not need refrigeration.) I mix them with bc for a mousse like filling. I also used a meringue based bc.
Thanks so much for your positive responses to its taste crumbcake and leahs -I think I'll pick up a raspberry tomorrow! BTW, has anyone used it for cheesecake swirl? Would it be the right consistency?
I have a question for you then leahs! I just came across the bavarian cream and the chocolate bavarian sleeved fillings... which I LOVE (!!) as well as the friends who have tried my cakes... but what I am wondering is if this limits your filling options? Or do you only use the fillings when need be and also offer other types on your menu that don't come premade?
... Just thought it would be a great time for me to pick your brain! Thanks in advance!
I use the raspberry one often but sadly, when I tried the Bavarian Cream, I almost gagged. It was dreadful.......maybe I got a bad batch, I can't remember the manufacturer though.
All I know is my husband and I both tasted it and it had a (bad) tang to it - blech! I can still remember the nast.
I am glad to hear you all use it and love it though. Maybe I'll give it another try.
Meagazz, I use these all the time I do a Strawberry bavarian cream fill french vanilla cake. It is one of my most requested cakes.
Raspberry filled with a chocolate fudge cake yumm.
For a restaurant That I make desert for I use them with puff pastry filled with any flavor filling and then drizzled with white choc.
Oh yum, tripleD, that cake sounds great!
Next question now... (sorry!) I NEVER am able to use up the entire package of filling, and I hate that it always goes to waste, so I always put a bag clip on it, put it in a Ziploc, and then throw it in the firdge... but once I have opened it, how long will it last in the fridge??
Meagazz, I have been wondering the exact same thing, and I am hoping someone who uses these often will jump in and give us the answer! Thanks!
BTW, I just got my first sleeve (raspberry) to try. I thought it was a little starchy feeling/tasting, and not as much tart rasp flavor as I like. I melted 1/2-3/4 cup rasp preserves with 1-2 Tbsp water in the micro, then mixed that into 1/2 the sleeve. I swirled it into a white chocolate cheesecake, and it worked like a charm! Perfect consistency! I'll use it now to stretch my preserves or homemade sauce. I'll eventually test some others, as I love the idea of it being shelf stable, cheaper, and a real time saver!
I live in a small town in Ontario, an hour and a half from Toronto, and I can't find anywhere to buy sleeved fillings except a few at McCall's where I do not have membership. Most websites are in USD and charge a ton for shipping to Canada. Anyone in Ontario who knows where I can buy sleeved fillings, please help! Thanks.
I use them all the time as well. I try to by Henry and Henry brand but have used the ck brand when I cant get what i want. If I dont use them all I put them in the fridge if I know I need it the following week but if its going to be a while I out it in the freezer.
I use them all the time and have not found one flavor that I do not like. Not certain which brand I use (think it's CK) - I am so use to it that I just pick them up without thinking about it.
I have had them open for several weeks in the refrigerator and had no problem with them. However, personally, I would not keep the bavarian cream for more than a week.
I work in a grocery store and we use those all the time. I've had a bag in the fridge for 5-7 days and it was still good. I've never tested it to it's limits, but from what I've seen I guess it would ve awhile.
I read aprevious post on the subject of how long would they last, and they are supposed to be good 6 months (after being opened) in the refrigerator. One year unopened. Maybe if you do a search you can find who posted it - I am thinking someone emailed the company and asked.
