I was just wondering if there is a difference between pastry cream and bavarian cream or if they are two different names for the same thing. Enlighten me! Thanks!

Obviously missed that post a couple days ago. Thanks! Do you have a preference for which one you use as a filling?

Really depends on the cake I'm making. Generally, I prefer to make pastry cream cause I find it easier not to have to mess w/ the gelatin.
