Hello,

I have a wedding cake to do and am in desperate need of a good chocolate filling to put in my marble cake. The one i usually make has milk in it therefore it's not the safest one to use for a wedding cake.

I have also used some nutrifil in the past and added cocoa powder to it but it was horrible! Should I add the cocoa powder when the nutrifil is in it's liquid state? Also how much for 1 cup of nutrifil?? or maybe should I use real melted chocolate into the nutrifil?

I really like using nutrifil but no idea how to make it nice and chocolately???

I'm open to other non-refrigerated chocolate fillings too!
Please and thanks!

What about using chocolate ganache? You can buy chocolate as rich and as deep as you want, from bittersweet to milk chocolate (recipe will change slightly as you go with a softer chocolate) And even though it uses heavy cream, it is safe at room temp making it perfect for a wedding cake! super yummy too!!

I would suggest chocolate ganache or a nice rich fudgy buttercream.

I have never made ganache... isn't it a liquid type of icing that you pour? I would like a nice thick layer of filling inbetween my cake layers?

Can you give me a recipe for ganache?

Also.... got a good recipe for a fudgey buttercream? Although buttercream takes butter and milk so is that really a good filling choice for a cake that's going to sit out all night?

Thanks!

If u let the ganache sit over night in the frig it will become a solid form that would be great for a filling

I agree a Ganache would be perfect, and it isnt too runny, at least the Martha Stewart recipe isn't. I use that as a filling all the time, and I do not refrigerate it.

IF I need this filling to sit out for the wedding cake... should I replace the heavy cream with nutrifil? Also is there a difference between heavy cream and whipping cream?

Ganache can be left un refrigerated. I don't know what nutrifill is, but heavy cream and whipping cream are similar, but I think they may have a slightly different fat content. I've used them interchangeably in ganache recipes.

Nutrifil is a non dairy whipped topping I use very often.

Thanks!

Now any tips on which recipe to use?
