Hi. I am new to this site, but want to say how very informative I have found it to be.
Here is my situation: My daughter wants me to bake a stacked cake for her upcoming 14th birthday. Her request is that the cake itself be like a white confetti cake. She wants a marshmallow tasting filling and "white" frosting. She requested no fondant. I was just wondering if anyone had ideas about the filling and icing. I have reviewed many recipes and previous posts. Since this is my first decorated cake, I have no experience with fillings or icing. I think maybe I have done too much research. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hi and Welcome to CC!!
It sounds like she wants a plain old marshmellow fluff filling..if you are pressed for time they sell it in a jar in the aisle with ice cream cones and toppings...As for the white icing...any white Buttercream recipe will do but I suggest Indydebi's or Sugarshacks recipes!! They are great.I think there may be a marshmellow icing recipe on here or you can google it.Most all cooking sites have a version of it!!

Hello from a fellow Louisiana caker!
I'm in Lafayette - if you need any help with your cake or finding supplies in this area, just send me a PM.
My tip - keep it simple and it will look great.
Good luck, you can do it!
I guess your questions have been answered. Good luck!
Marshmallow filling, you might be able to use a pastry bag and a Wilton 230 size tip to poke a few holes in the cake to fill it. You might want to practice on some cupcakes or something to get the filling part right.
Thank you all for the info and words of encouragement. I am making this cake on Monday. Hopefully it will turn out well. Thanks again.
I can't remember if I got this here or from the Wilton site, but Twinkie filling is great! I just made a banana cake with Twinkie filling and the family can't stop eating it.
Twinkie Creme Filling
2 teaspoons very hot water
rounded 1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups marshmallow creme (1 7-ounce jar)
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine the salt with the hot water in a small bowl and stir until salt is dissolved. Let this mixture cool.
Combine the marshmallow creme, shortening, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a medium bowl and mix well with an electric mixer on high speed until fluffy.
Add the salt solution to the filling mixture and combine.
Makes 1 1/2 cups.
