Hi All...quick question...

What is your favourite pairing to go with Cookies & Cream Filling that uses heavy cream (not buttercream) as the base? I have a friend who wants that filling and has left it up to me as to what cake flavour to pair it with.

I have NO idea LOL...I've been told that a dark chocolate cake can overpower it...any advice pls?

Also, how long would it keep at room temp if it uses whipping cream as the base? The recipe I plan to use is this one from the recipes section:

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated - no wrong answers here!

Thanks - vlin28

I like it with a WHITE & Chocolate marble cake - 2 separate recipes and then combined with a knife. Lately I've been doing it with a checkerboard effect instead of the marble. A yellow cake gives pretty much the same taste, but ot the same "matching" effect when you cut into it. I agree that just chocolate sometimes overpowers the cookies and cream.

I don't think that I would leave the cake out of the fridge long at all, since it has whipping cream in it.

well I use a buttercream base, but I love it with marble cake! I bet it would still taste good doing it your way as well icon_smile.gif

I made it once with white and chocolate layers alternating. It was wonderful!

I've recommended the marble flavour - thanks for everyone's suggestions. It was apparent that a combination of chocolate and a white/yellow cake was the best option.

I'll be sure to post the cake once it's done which won't be until the end of October. A fair bit away but it's for my friend's engagement dinner so I wanted to make sure I made it as wonderful as possible and her fiance is partial to Cookies & Cream filling!

Thanks again everyone!

As promised...here is the cake...(it's also my new avatar pic)

I'll hear back from her on Tuesday on how the flavour combination went over!

Thanks again for everyone's input icon_smile.gif
