I don't know if any of you have ever made or had a kool-aid pie, but they are pretty much a staple in our family haha! Anyway, I made a lemonade one a couple weeks back, and ever since, I have been thinking the filling of the pie would make a great cake filling. Here is the recipe:
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 packs kool-aid, any flavor
1 tub Cool Whip
For the pie, you mix all this very well, and it fills 2 graham cracker crusts. And of course, you keep it refrigerated.
So, do you think this would make a good cake filling. It sets up very sturdy. I think I might try one this weekend and report back what I find, but ah, imagine the possibilities!
Sounds yummy, but could you do it without the cool whip? I would want a recipe I didn't have to refrigerate?
The cool whip would probably make the cake slide....I used Dream Whip in the middle for the 4th and by the time I got there, the layers slid on my pretty cake and there was fruit incorporated in the Whip
I was thinking about that the other day! We love our pink lemonade pies in my family. I think if you piped a buttercream dam and let the filling set before you put the top layer on, then it should work out just fine. Of course it would have to be refrigerated, but so do a lot of other cakes. Let us know if you try it.
