Hi everyone,

I am a newbie hobby baker icon_smile.gif and was trying to make my first 2 tier cake for a toddler's bday .

I am thinking on making a marble cake but am not sure what filling will be good with it. Can anyone please suggest me a good filling with recipe. I want to use a buttercream frosting in red color on the outside, so I need the filling to taste good with marble cake and also look good with the red frosting. Also I do not want to use the same red frosting for the cake filling.

Any suggestions and tips are highly appreciated. TIA

Why dont you use the same buttercream frosting for the middle without the red coloring? Or add some chocolate to the buttercream recipe and make the filling chocolate buttercream. Good luck.

Are you going to flavor the red buttercream? Thats gonna be a lot of red food coloring so make sure you use the Wilton "no taste" red (from one newbie to another).

How about white cholocate mousse filling or even a white chocolate almond mousse (in which case you would just add some almond extract which you could also do to the buttercream to tie them together).

When I do marble cake I use either buttercream , or a custard filling. I'm sure you could use just about anything, but those are what I prefer for appearance.

I would be carefull about using any kind of a nut extract because of alergies also I know you aren't supposed to give babies any kinds of nuts up to a certain age I'm not sure if that applies to extracts.

What about a bavarian cream filling? That with marble cake is one of our most popular combinations - it tastes delicious! icon_biggrin.gif
