I have a cake request for a German Choc. However, they just want the "cakey" part German Choc. The regular type of icing that goes with German Choc. is not wanted. Just regular BC icing.
With the exception of regular BC, what kind of filling goes nicely with this type of cake. I have used Bavarian Cream in a Choc. cake before but the cake over powered the filling! It turned it from white to brown. You could not even taste the filling.
I will be making the same thing this Friday for a little girls birthday party. The mother actually wanted the German chocolate filling and I talked her out of using it because of potential nut allergies. The cake is for a friend so I talked her into using Toba Garrets chocolate butter cream. Her recipe is wonderful and uses dutch cocoa and ganache. I have also used a vanilla mousse made out of one pint whipping cream and one small box of instant vanilla pudding. You can use any flavor of pudding. My favorites are vanilla, banana cream, chocolate fudge, cheesecake and white chocolate.
Thank you for the advice!
I made a German chocolate cake for my FIL's birthday and I used the typical coconut, pecan frosting as the filling. It turned out really well. HTH
I made a chocolate cake recently with a whipped ganache filling. It was delicious!
To me the pecan coconut icing is what makes it a german chocolate cake, other wise it is just a mellow flavored chocolate cake.
I'd say anything that would to with chocolate cake would go with the german chocolate cake.
Thank you folks!
I think I am going to do the Choc. Bavarian Cream filling.
