I have to do a wedding cake in a few weeks. She wants a dulce de leche filling. I know the boiling the can of condensed milk recipe but am not sure if that is stable enough for a stacked cake. Has anyone tried it on a wedding cake or have another good recipe? Thanks.

I use the dulce de leche found in the ethnic isle at walmart. Not sure who it's made by but I know it's only in the ethnic section. I have used it in stacked and carved cakes as a filling. It's a little thick but I usually mix it with a little buttercream to help it smooth better. It taste great too. You could also heat it just a tiny bit to help it smooth out.

Nestle's makes it.

It is thick, I usually just heat it in the microwave for a few seconds. You can also add a little cream to it.

It has held up for me for me with no issues. I've used it many times on different cakes.

Sorry! I didn't even know anyone responded to this question! So would you say the store bought dulce de leche would be better or easier than boiling the can? Thanks!
