Hi CC! I have a friend who absolutely loves cannoli filling. Has anybody used cannoli filling as a cake filling? If so, how far in advance can you make the cannoli filling before you eat it? I was hoping to make the cannoli filling on Wednesday, torte the cake Thursday, and eat on Saturday - will this work out??
Any information is so greatly appreciated!
I have no experience with it, but that sounds delicious (I'm Italian)!!!!! I would search to see if you can find Cake Boss's (Buddy Valastro) recipe--he is known for his cannoli, and I'm betting he's used it as a cake filling. Worth a Google!
Just found this, but didn't search for long, so I'd search further: http://52weeksofbaking.com/2009/07/27/week-thirty-one-cannoli-cake/
I made cannolis last year for a luncheon and had lots of filling left over so I used it to fill a choc. cake. It was soooooo delicious. The filling had been in my fridge about 3 days before I put it into the cake. So, your timeline sounds fine to me.
Thank you everyone for the posts. If it turns out with good reviews, I'll post the recipe I end up using.
Cannoli filling is used as the filling in Cassata cake.
