I bought all the stuff to make this filling, it sounds so good! I'm going to just use a white cake and a chocolate buttercream.

Will let you know how it turns out!

This sounds amazing... I was looking for something different for a filling flavor for a wedding cake, the bride wants different flavours in each tier... will be trying it out on my kids next week and if they like it, its a winner!!

Oh why didn't you post this a few week ago!! LOL I searched forever for a Nutella filling for my son's graduation cake. I found one with whipping cream...it was good but didn't have the texture I was looking for. This sounds perfect!!! Thanks for sharing!

Karukaru - I personally would have no problem eating a cream cheese-based filling left out overnight, but 3 nights is pushing it... Hope your cake turned out okay!

I want to use this filling for a wedding cake that could potentially be sitting out overnight, but most sources out there say this is NOT OKAY lol. So I guess I will either have to modify the recipe or find a way to keep the layers refrigerated until the event...

I have left cream cheese based frostings out of the fridge for 3 days with absolutey no problem. (Of course my kitchen was cool as I had the AC on.)

Hi! Can you tell me, what do you mean by 2 packages of cream cheese? How much should I take? Sorry, but I'm from Poland so I just wanna be sure :)
