Does anyone have a delicious vanilla filling they would be willing to share?? I need a plain vanilla filling for several wedding cakes coming up - and I do have one that I use....but I would like a better one! Thank you so much!!
The only thing I can think of is the sleeved Bavarian cream filling, or just use plain buttercream. Or you could mix them both together.
Some people use Bettercreme which you can whip with some instant pudding. Bettercreme can be tough to find and to me, texturally and taste-wise it is identical to Cool Whip. Cool Whip isn't shelf stable though so it wouldn't be a suitable replacement.
If you are able to refrigerate, pastry cream is delicious when lightened with whipped cream and sandwiched in between cake layers. That's probably my favorite filling.
