What about the twinkie filling? I've used the cooked flour/milk icing for filling also - sometimes just adding some marshmellow cream to it too. You could use almost anything for filling.

Strawberry preserves or strawberry cream filling is my favorite with vanilla cake.

I have done vanilla custard filling (like a pudding that you mention), topped with fresh sliced strawberries and bananas. (It's my brother's favorite filling!) You would just need to make sure your dam is strong enough to support the softer filling. Best wishes with this, as I realize it will bring you more business in the coming year! icon_smile.gif

Sounds like this may be a good time to use a vanilla pastry cream, which is a lot thicker than a pudding.

Try to Google it. Sorry, but I don't have a recipe for it.

A nice filling that seems to be popular with my consumers is a box of vanilla pudding and whipping cream. It is like a mousse type filling, and tasts delicious. You can use any flavor pudding, as well. I think if you check this site for Chocolate Mousse fillings, you'll find it there.

I use this all the time and it's delicious. Just mix a box of instant vanilla or french vanilla pudding with heavy cream instead of milk. Mix it until it thickens - it doesn't take long. It makes a very delicious filling and with all of the different pudding flavors available, you don't have to stop at vanilla!

thank you for all your help I think I will try the pastry cream filling and the pudding whipped cream method and see which one turns out better
