Ganache; curd and buttercream ( I have TRIED them at room temp. for at least 2 days and it did not go bad).
You can make a variety of fillings by just adding shelf stable items to your buttercream such as jams, jellies, melted chocolate, flavorings like Lorann's or toranni syrup.
If you have access to liquid bettercreme you can make shelf stable mouses by whipping bettercreme with powdered instant pudding.
I could be wrong but I thought curds require refrigeration because of the eggs. I'm never 100% sure on what is and isn't shelf stable but eggs, cream cheese etc make me nervous so I try and stick to things that I know are stable.
thanks ya i'll check into those one of these days, oreo filllings sounds delicious.
sillywabbitz, I have a question, what is liquid bettercreme? I do have some bettercreme that i bought from sam's club (is that what it is?). \\
I was sitting here thinking is it possibly to add in strawberry jams and strawberry glazed in the bettercreme?
sometimes i cut up fresh strawberrys and mix it with strawberry glazed as a filling.
but since the cake the cake i'm making next week will be left out for 24 hrs i'm not sure how the fresh strawberry will hold up.
The stuff you got at Sam's is pre-whipped bettercreme and yes you can add jam to it and create a cream filling. I usually microwave the jam so that I can get it smooth, let it sit on the counter until it's cool to the touch then mix it in. Liquid bettercreme is actually a liquid and comes in a quart container like whipping cream. You whip it yourself and can add flavorings, pudding etc. I get mine from my cake supply but depending on where you live you can get similar items at Smart and Final and Gordon's food supply. Pastry Pride and I think Velvet topping are similar products.
As for the fresh strawberries, on their own I wouldn't do it. I'm not sure what preservative features the glaze would have so I can't comment on that.
