Anyone have ideas for some fillings that do NOT need refrigeration? Of course I know of the basic ones like strawberry jam + buttercream. I really need something that will go with a lemon poppyseed cake! I sould also like something similar to a chocolate mousse. Ideas are appreciated!
I just made a lemon poppyseed cake a couple of weeks ago and paired it with a whipped white chocolate lemon ganache. It was delicious and doesn't need to be refrigerated!
that sounds great, do you have a link for the recipe?
I actually messed with several recipes to come up with ratios I liked. Here's how I made it:
White Chocolate Lemon Ganache
30 oz. white chocolate
10 oz. heavy cream
1 1/2 T. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. finely chopped lemon zest
Add lemon zest to heavy cream and heat to a scald. Add lemon juice and white chocolate and stir gently until completely melted. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing the wrap onto the ganaches surface so a skin wont form. Refridgerate at least 6 hours.
Once chilled beat the ganache on medium-high until the mixture starts to thicken, just until soft peaks form (you will end up with a white chocolate whipped cream). Dont over beat or the ganache will have a grainy texture.
oh that's so good, thank you for sharing.
