I want to make a cake for my sister's birthday. I want to put a strawberry cream filling in it but I don't want to use bc. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
what type of cake are u making? why dont u want to use bc what about cream cheese filling?
Chocolate cake. I don't want to use bc because I want to try something different. Cream cheese might work.
You could try a whipped cream type of filling and add strawberry filling and extract. OR ------- White Chocolate Ganache!
ohhh white choc ganache sounds fab!!!!
A good brand of strawberry jam can stand alone for a filling or be mixed into BC. Easy to use and no worries about fresh strawberries macerating and things getting soggy...or you can use a drop or two of LorAnn brand strawberry oil. Spot on flavor and no chemical aftertaste from an extract.
Thank you all for your ideas. They are all great ideas. I don't think I would have thought of the whit cocolate ganache. I do have another question about the frosting. I wanted to use chocolate ganache for it. What consistancy should I use?
easty strawberry mousse filling (or white chocolate mousse). 2 cups heavy whipping cream and 1 package (the small one- 4oz i think) of pudding mix. very yummy and soooo easy and quick.
r u making setting ganache? if so, it should be the consistency of BC or peanut butter. sometimes i nuke mine (in 5 sec increments) to get it slightly thinner b/c it is a bit easier to work with.
