Anyone have any ideas for a cake that tastes like Reeses? Choc cake with peanut butter filling? or should I put peanut butter right in the cake? I'm not sure what would be best - birthday girl doesn't really like cake but LOVES peanut butter cups!

Chocolate cake, with peanut butter mousse filling and Reese's cups chopped up in the filling as well.

I just made chocolate ganache covered pb cake balls last night!! YUM! You could do the same, but put ganache as a filling and cover in ganache - or put Duncan Hines Caramel frosting as a filling and then cover in ganache....YUMMY!!

I got the PB cake recipe right here....(all you do is add 1 cup of PB to a Duncan Hines butter recipe cake and VOILA...PB cake!!)

HTH! Let us know if you try it out!! Good Luck!! icon_biggrin.gif

you also might want to consider hollowing out the middle of the cake a little bit to contain more filling...that would make it more reese-like.

This receipe sounds yummy! but what is 'bettercreme'? It calls for 2cups.

Bettercreme is a whipped topping. Sams club sells it to you, GFS, & some other supply companies. It's made by Rich's.
OR I just bought some Dawn's velvatop, that is just as good if not better then bettercreme!

its a liquid non dairy "cream" alternative i guess you could say. you can whip it up and flavor it for use as a filling, icing, etc. i purchase it at smart n' final but i guess it depends on where you're at. ive seen some people say they get it from sam's club.

It's a whipped Icing, not a whipped topping...had a horrible headache when I typed that.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm going to use the Darn Good Choc Cake recipe I found on cc, then fill with Peanut Butter Cup Filling (also found on cc) going to add chopped reeses peanut butter cups in the center.

I love the idea of hollowing out the inside for more filling - a bunch of 7 year olds will love that!

And yes, I'm going to try and make it look like a giant reeses pb cup! This will be the first time I carved a cake but it seems pretty easy in this instance.

Wish me luck, will post a pic when I'm done! thumbs_up.gif
