I'm making my twin daughters first birthday cake for their party this Sunday and would like a filling for it. Something to break up the buttercream. The cake is a full sheet of 1/2 chocolate 1/2 yellow batter. Also, I swear I'm not just being lazy! I'm just on information overload!!! I need something easy, but yummy and am not a fan of just preserves or jam. I was considering a strawberries and cream filling but read in the reciews that it can break down after a while and I'm too afraid to chance it! icon_biggrin.gif Please if someone can help I'd appreciate it.

I like the easy and tasty cream cheese filling:

And you can layer raspberry puree filling over the cream cheese filling for a really pretty double filling (looks great when plated):

A pudding "mousse" can be good, and is very easy. I just take a small packet of instant pudding, mix it with a cup of milk, then whip a cup of heavy cream into peaks and fold it in, along with any extracts.

I personally like using french vanilla pudding and flavoring it with almond extract, but the flavor combinations are endless. I think the "Costco Mousse" recipe on here is very similar. (I don't think the cream is whipped separately in that one, though.) HTH!

I agree with Sherri; a pudding mousse. I've also used Dulce de Leche when in a hurry and want something super quick an easy.

I think for a child's birthday the pudding mousse would be great. It's simple and something small guests will actually eat icon_smile.gif happy birthday to your daughters!

I'm making a cake for my cousins baby's 1st b-day party next weekend. I've decided on making the oreo filling from CC. I keep hearing kids (and big kids!) love this stuff... I also heard it tastes wonderful with chocolate or white cake.
