Ok all you Cake Maker/Eaters, I'm ready to start to try different kinds of fillings. I have always filled with buttercream but figure I need to try other kinds too.
So which is the best with basic white cake?
What about chocolate?

I have some tasters ready so the sooner the better.

Thanks so much!!
Merry

With white cake I love lemon curd or raspberry preserves. For chocolate cake I love raspberry preserves or caramel or Nutella. Any of the above mixed half and half with buttercream is also really good. Have fun experimenting!

Chocolate cake with white chocolate mousse and fresh (or frozen if you must) raspberries. Cover the cake with fresh whipped cream. Or Chocolate ganache. OMGoodness. Totally YUMMY!

[quote="indydebi"]red raspberry. my absolute favorite!

AMEN!! with white cake - icon_eek.gif ! What a combo! I actually stumbled on this filling by accident...I ordered strawberry sleeve filling from my local cake supply store and had someone else pick it up for me...I did not realize it was not strawberry until I was filling the cake...what a SWEET surprise that was!! icon_lol.gif (It's GREAT with Swiss Choc cake too!! icon_wink.gif )

Also, one of my favorites is Red Velvet with chocolate ganache!! Now THAT'S a treat!! YUMMY!! thumbs_up.gif

My absolute favorite, and the one that gets the biggest response, is white cake with lemon buttercream and fresh red raspberries. The lemon is just the right touch!

This is my favorite filling for devil's food cake:

My kids love to eat a scoop of it with frest strawberries too. There's never any waste of it around here. 75% of brides choose it for at least one tier during a tasting too.

I love chocolate cake with a peanut butter filling covered in ganache. Oh so yummy and rich. It's my dad's favorite also.

What is lemon curd buttercream? A combo of the 2?

I want to try lemon cyrd for the first time, but need to freeze the cake filled. I don't think I can freeze lemon curd- right? So I'm looking for a new lemony option.

I like white cake with vanilla pudding/cream and ganache, sort of 'boston-creamish'.

My favorite filling that I have made so far has got to be Cookies and Cream. Strawberry mousse comes in 2nd. The strawberry mousse is not only good as a filling but as a dip, to dip cut up fruit in. I could eat both of them plain. icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif

For lemon curd buttecream, what I do is mix them 50/50. I don't make my own lemon curd. I use Dickinson's brand which is usually in the baking aisle of the grocery store (or maybe the jam/jelly section). It's delicious. I wouldn't be afraid to freeze it at all, especially if mixed with buttercream.

Sorry if you were only asking jhutch04, but I make cookies and cream by mixing crushed Oreos with whipped vanilla Bettercreme.

My all time fav is coconut cream pie filling, I make it just as if it was going in a pie but instead of pie crust I use cake, yummy.
It goes good with chocolate, white and of course coconut cream cake.
The best recipe I have found is in the Joy of Cooking , its the cream pie recipe with coconut added, ah my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

What is your favorite non-perishable filling? Is it possible to do fruit fillings without refrigerating the cake? I want to branch out from buttercream filling also, but I don't have refrigerator space for the cake.
