Okay, I know that the whipped bettercreme stuff, the non-dairy from Sam's, can sit out for a couple days on a frosted cake. But would it last as long as a filling for a cake if I whipped it up with a pudding mix? It's pre-whipped, I would just be thickening it with something like pistachio pudding as a filling, not a frosting.
I have a cake due for a family wedding, outdoor evening reception but it's not very hot from 6-8 pm where we live. I just need to know how long the cake can sit, as far as decorating goes, since I'll be covering it with fondant and have no room in my fridge for 3 full tiers. If it wouldn't be safe, I won't do a fancy filling, strictly Indydeb's buttercream!
Anyone know if pudding and bettercreme can sit out for a day or two while I decorate?
Bettercream can definitely sit at room temp for several days. If it's fine on the outside of a cake, it's also fine on the inside of a cake. The dry pudding mix to flavor it shouldn't have any effect. You can also mix bettercream with sleeved fillings and that doesn't have to be refrigerated.
Thank you Thank you Thank you!!!!!
I was just dying to do vanilla cake, with pistachio pudding/bettercreme filling, and chocolate cake with chocolate fudge pudding/bettercreme... but didn't dare if it would make someone sick. I can't sell cakes in my state, but you still don't want to serve cake to 150 people and make them sick.
I did this for my Quince cake a couple of weeks ago. I used Frosting Pride and vanilla pudding it worked wonderfully. It can sit out for up to five days.
