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.
you could even make it look like a reese's cup...there are several examples in the gallery
I would put choc ganach on that too just to up the flavor!
Oh my!! I have got to try this cake.....is the recipe for p.b. mousse filling on CC?
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!!
peanut butter filling:
2 c. creamy PB
2 pkgs. cream cheese
2 c. powdered sugar
2 T. vanilla
2 c. bettercream
forgot to mention got this recipe from the ever-popular gourmet flavors thread.
i see this and automatically think of the giant PB cup Duff did on Ace of Cakes. lol. will deffinately be trying this recipe!
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.
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!
Good luck....it sounds delicious!!
