I want to fill a choc cake with a layer of Oreo/whipped cream filling. How do I stop or prevent the whipped cream from soaking in or deflating?
any advice would be helpful
spread a thin layer of buttercream on the cake the filling sits on and the cake that sits on top of the filling. and refrigerate it.
Also, if you use a non-dairy whipped cream product, like Frosting Pride it will not deflate or soak in. That is what I use for my oreo and cream filling.
If you're making a real whipped cream filling and just tossing in some crushed Oreos, you'll need to "stabilize" the whipping cream with some unflavored gelatin.
Plain whipped cream will break down....ask me how I know this
I am using real whipped cream already whipped it can i add in the gelatin after it is whipped? I have not added the Oreos yet. The cake is for tomorrow do you think the whipped cream will stay together untill then?
how gelatin do you suggest? I have about 3 cups of whipped cream
Here's a link to a good 5 star rated recipe from this site.
Based on this recipe you can still add the gelatin to the already whipped cream.
It will definitely hold up in the fridge til tomorrow if you stabilize it.
edit to add you'll need to first dissolve the gelatin in some water before adding it.
