What flavor of malted milk mix did you use? There are a lot to choose from at the grocery!
I used Carnation Malted Milk Original.
Anyone know if I could keep this filling at room temp? Trying my 1st cake and going to try fondant as well. (OMG!!) If I could keep the cake filled overnight at room temp (with this filling) it would be GREAT ! Thanks
This should keep at room temp over night. There is something about the sugar that acts as a preservative for the milk/cream.
Overall, I thought this was an ok recipe. I added more sugar than called for and I still thought it was too thin. It would be nice to find something fluffy. And I would 1/2 or 1/3 this for next time. I filled a 1/2 sheet cake and still have cups of this left. Very sweet.
This is a great recipe! It actually gets better if you let it sit with the flavors overnight (in the fridge). It is habit forming! My family loves it.
if i add meringue powder would it stabalize it a little more
I am going try these for a cupcake filling... I am so excited.
has anyone used this to fill candy?
I don't know about anyone else, but having butter & heavy cream, this isn't safe to leave out overnight. Please don't, for the sake of your guests.
What kind of carmel filling would you pair with it?
Hi Yums - sorry I see the original post is quite old already. Am just wondering if perhaps you use half of that cream and add in a few tablespoons of coffee creamer to stiffen up and remove some of the sweetness. I tend to go there when I notice people scratching off any icing because of its sweetness?? Also it will act as a stabiliser for the cream since it has it in in any case.
StellaBaking, the sugar in this stabilizes to prevent spoiling. I wouldn't recommend leaving it out for days on end, and with warmer temperatures you do tend to see a separation of the fats. chellie279, a homemade caramel goes very well with this, since the commercial ice cream toppings tend to be too thin. I have used a salted caramel recipe I found here on CC last fall that I dearly love. Chloezee, I modified another recipe i had for a peanut butter fluff that is a tried and true favorite. Try adding a dash of salt to cut the sweetness if it's too much for your taste. Personally, I don't care for the artificial junk found in many coffee creamers, so I don't keep them in my cupboard, thus, they have never made it into any of my recipe experiments.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
