Hi all! I made a filling with bettercreme, extract and a little bit of sleeve filling folded in. It seemed pretty thick when I made it and so I made a good buttercream dam on my cake, smeared a thin layer of banana sleeve filling on the cake layer, topped it with the bettercreme filling and topped with the other cake layer. But now it has occurred to me, "WILL THE BETTERCREME ABSORB INTO THE CAKE LAYERS SINCE I DIDN'T ADD ANY PUDDING??" I am scared there will be no filling when the cake is cut. I filled the cake on Thursday and the party is today.

PLEASE HELP!! MY NERVES ARE SHOT!!!! OH THE EMBARRASSMENT!!!

CARI

Bettercreme isn't absorbed into the cake, whether or not you add any pudding to it. icon_smile.gif

(I just whip it up plain from the carton and it's always fine.)

Bettercreme is a whipped icing used at most retail chains (walmart, etc)....it is the lighter fluffier icing. There are many names for it, Bettercreme is the name for the whipped icing made by Rich's. It can come in a bucket pre-whipped or in a carton like milk, where you whip it yourself.

Bettercreme and Pastry Pride are non diary ready to whip toppings. They can be used many ways. Lots of bakers use them to ice the cake. They have a flavor somewhat like whip cream. Often times come frozen, you just thaw and whip

Sorry, it was late and I didn't catch the BETTERCREME from buttercream. You should still be ok.
