Anyone know of a good filling that does not have to be refridgerated after the cake is done? I am doing a wedding cake for a beach wedding and I know there will not be a large enough fridge at the venu to keep the cake chilled. The cake will be in air conditioning... Plus it would be eaiser if I could complete it the night before and not have to chill it as well.
I don't have any answers for you...All I have ever done is filling with a fruit jam/jelly mixed with buttercream...or a buttercream filling. I never refridgerate my cakes.
2 c. liquid Rich's Bettercreme
1/2 c. milk
1 box instant pudding mix (dry mix)
my favorite is cheesecake
could do white chocolate
you name it!
whip all the above ingredients together until you get stiff peeks, it's fine at room temp. for up to 5 days and it's DELICIOUS!!!
Buttercream normally does not need to be refrigerated. If you use an all shortening based buttercream without real butter then there should not be a melting problem, but if it is for a filling it should be just fine.
Buttercream, jams/jelly/preserves, thick ice cream toppings, nutella, dulce de leche...
There are also fillings that come in plastic sleeves that are made for cakes that don't have to be kept in the fridge.
What type of milk do you use? Would skim be OK?
yep, I've even used water when I was out of milk........didn't notice much of a difference it was still delicious!
KHalstead- I was just wondering if the recipe you posted using the pudding mix stays thick? I am too looking for a recipe for filling that does not need to stay chilled. I found a chocolate butter cream recipe that was good and as long as it is chilled it stays thick but when left out it turns soupy and soaks into the cake.
I always wonder about that whole refrigeration thing.....I know where I work, we may have 12 wedding cakes on a Saturday and start delivering at 3. I, myself have never had a cold piece of wedding cake at the reception....have you? LOL... I never noticed the cakes I ate at a reception weren't cold until I became a decorator. Makes ya wonder, huh?
I do a chocolate pudding filling. It is a small box of choco pudding, 1 cup of cold water and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk. It thickens up too!
