AHi, I need to make a cake and fill it with banana pudding. I have been doing some research but have had trouble finding a banana pudding recipe that doesn't need refrigeration. I found a ready made banana cream pudding at the grocery store. Do you think I can use it?

ALook on the packaging for a 'refrigerate after opening' label.

Thanks, is there something I can add to make it shelf stable?

You need to get a commercial "sleeve" filling.  It comes in banana cream.  It already has preservatives in it.  Otherwise, I can't think of a pudding style that is remotely shelf-stable

AHi, I couldn't buy the sleeve because it is a last minute order and my local cake supplies stores do have sleeves but do not carry banana. I just checked and the banana cream pudding that I found says "needs no refrigeration" so hopefully will be ok. This is the one http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009F9WLOK
