I made and froze his cakes. The theme is monkeys!
I made some small orange flavored cake for his smash cake and wanted to make a fruit filling since I'm not quite ready for him to have chocolate or nuts.
Can I just add some orange marmalade to some buttercream?
Is there a better buttercream recipe for this?
Thanks!

Yes, you can do that, or add a little bit of freshly squeezed orange juice to your normal buttercream. icon_smile.gif

I would imagine that you would just replace the liquid that is called for in the bc with the oj.


I'm sure Bashini will reply but I think it's quite late where she is right now so in case your thinking of doing it now I thought I'd chime in. icon_smile.gif

Yes, the oj would just replace the liquid in the bc, usually a few tablespoons or until u get the consistency you desire.

You can also make a really good orange filling. I have a recipe that is lighter than an orange curd, but still very sweet and tangy, with a perfect texture for cake filling. I'll post it in a bit.

This is from a 40 year old Pilsbury book.

Sunny Orange Filling
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 1/2 cups orange juice
1/2 cup water
4 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1/4 cup butter

In medium saucepan, combine sugar with cornstarch, salt and orange zest. Blend in orange juice, water and yolks. cook over medium heat,, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Remove from heat. Add butter, cool.

Happy Birthday to your Nate - just had to have a sticky beak because I have a Nate too! Awesome name (and very unusual over here in Australia, hence my excitement)! Monkeys is such a cool theme!

Thanks xstiitcher! icon_smile.gif I don't have spesific quantity for the orange juice. I just go with how much orange juice taste I want. Sorry I'm not much of help, but hope you have a idea what to do. icon_smile.gifthumbs_up.gif
