i found this recipe while searching the forum boards and i decided to make it. it calls for Bettercreme.. im a newbie so i have no idea what that is and when i googled it it kept directing me to Buttercream information... what is Bettercreme, where do i get it and how much does it typically cost


also does anyone make their own fondant? ive heard the wilton fondant tastes horrible and i found a recipe for marshmellow fondant and was thinking of trying that... any thoughts or ideas?

this is the recipe for the filling that called for Bettercreme

"Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Filling - HeatherC
2 cups Bettercreme
1 small pkg. White Chocolate pudding mix
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Whip 2 cups liquid Bettercreme with small pkg. pudding until thick. Refrigerate.
Cream butter and sugars on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add water and vanilla. Gradually add flour. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cake layer and cover with Bettercreme mixture."

Bettercream can be purchased in liquid form or already whipped form. We have it at our Sam's club. What you need for your recipe is the liquid form...may come in different sizes ranging from pint to quart. To me, it tastes like Dream Whip. It can get stiff enough to pipe with when used alone as icing. It just has that "cool whip" tasted. Good luck!

Some of my family love whipped icing, instead of making my own, I buy it at our local Gordans Food Service (GFS) in quart cartons (they look like milk cartons).

If I rememebr right, it was about $5-$6, when whipped it made quite a bit. You dont need a membership to shop there either icon_smile.gif

check to see if you have close enough to your area

Good Luck,

I get it at Smart & Final $4.29 a quart.

You don't need a membership for Smart & Final either.
