I practiced my wedding cake today and I really wanted pineapple & cream cheese as the filling between layers. I was going to try goldenegg’s recipe “simple pineapple filling”. I was worried that it would be too soupy, I noticed some of the comments had said just that. Then I saw a post from debster about how she used SF pudding mix instead of powdered sugar, so I thought I should get a couple boxes of that for back up, in case it wouldn’t get thick with just the sugar. After talking it through with my friend and checking out the side of the pudding mix box, we came up with a pretty tasty filling that is thick enough for cake layers!
- - 20oz can of crushed pineapple with it’s juice
- - 1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
- - 1 1/2 C softened cream cheese
- - 1/2 C powdered sugar
Combine the whole can of pineapple and the pudding mix on low speed in mixer for about a minute or two.
Add cream cheese, turn up speed to fast, do this for another two minutes.
Add powdered sugar, mix for another two minutes.
Taste it! It’s delicious!
