I have 2 cakes on the go for this weekend - one chocolate & one lemon, I tried the chocolate truffle filling recipe, and its TO DIE FOR!

The chocolate worked out just perfectly. Here's my dillema:

I have a lemon cake (Macsmom's recipe) that I had made last week. I wanted to make the white chocolate truffle filling for it. My husband wanted the filling to taste like lemonade. I tried lemon extract - too much like lemon peel flavor, I added some lemon juice - not lemony enough, so I added lemonade concentrate until I got the flavor that I wanted. It tastes sooooo good!

The problem is that I darn near used up the whole can, and the filling isn't thickening up as I would like it too. I'm not sure weather I should add cream cheese, or more chocolate chips. I'm worried that the more I add, the more I would have to tamper with the flavor (and wind up in the same situation as now).

How can I thicken this filling without changing the nice, tart flavor?

Thanks in advance. I love, love, love this recipe!

Why don't you PM MacsMom? She is SO good about helping us out and that way she would see your post?

I did, but she hasn't responded yet . . .

I have to spend most of the day attending my son's Birthday party with friends, and I was really hoping to get a jump start on this cake before we leave . . . rather than the usual "stay up until 3:00 in the morning" to finish this cake. The last 2 B-day parties, I have practically fallen asleep before the guests leave - basically they just all met at my house & hosted themselves while I zoned out. (but they liked the cake).

I've only made it once and I actually thought mine was almost too thick. The only other suggestion I would make is to post a new question and be specific. White Chocolate Truffle filling is too thin. HELP!! When I need an answer quickly, I try to make the subject one that the people who CAN help me will know what it is about.

When I want a stronger citrus flavor, I always use the zest. It doesn't take much ... but you don't like the lemon peel flavor, so ... I would probably go the more chocolate route before the more cream cheese. The cream cheese would change the flavor more and you know you don't want that.

Good luck. icon_smile.gif

you could try heating it again and adding lots of cornstarch. i don't really know what else you could do but i hope it goes well for you

I've added cornstarch and have my fingers crossed . . . I'll have to wait until after the friends party to put this baby together. I have everything all figured out in my head as to how to put the pieces together, and all the decorations are pretty much ready to go . . . I'm hoping this'll be fairly quick as long as this delicious filling thickens! (otherwise, my family & I will be enjoying "lemonade cheesecake" pudding for the next 2 weeks).

if you keep it on low and keep stirring the pot moisture will evaporate from it over time... thats the only thing I can think of.

When I made this last week it was on the thin side too, esp. at room temp. Did cornstarch work?

When I made lemon white choc truffle filling, I used lemon zest, lemon juice, & lemon extract. As someone else said above, the zest adds a lot of lemon flavor without making it too thin.
Sorry, don't know how you could thicken it up;(
Did you try putting it in the fridge for a while?
BTW, does a cake that's filled with this need to be keep in the fridge?
