I have a friend who will visit with us this weekend. She wants to take a cake cake home with her for her friends birthday party which will be on the 14th of January. I will be baking and decorating it this weekend so she may take it home with her Sunday night and freeze it when she gets home. My question is, Which fillings freeze well? I'm not too concerned about the cake or frosting (Pastry Pride) being frozen for 1 week but I'm more concerned about the filling. Obviously no fresh fruit fillings would do well. Any ideas?
I always fill with buttercream or ganache and these freeze with no problem. There's a peanut butter filling with butter and brown sugar in the recipe section here that would freeze fine, too, as long as nobody has any peanut allergies.
You could mix fruit jam w/Pastry Pride.
There are soooooo many things that could be mixed w/PP -Oreo type cookie curmbs; crushed candies; peanutbutter &/or jelly; any flavored ice cream topping; canned pie filling; are just a few idea it use either alone or mixed w/the PP.
You don't say what flavor the cake will be so it's hard to come up w/anything specific.
Thanks everyone for your help. She decided on chocolate cake with cookies and cream filling. And kakeladi I love the versatility of PP. I decorate all my cakes with it!
Hi, kakeladi. I was reading over your suggestions for fillings and they sound really good. Funny, I never think to do interesting things with my buttercream to make the filling different from the icing, but you've inspired me!
