I was looking for a raspberry filling that was not too soupy and that didn’t soak into the cake as much. After several experiments I came up with this concoction. Since this became several customers’ favorite, hopefully you guys like it too.


  • 1 – 8 oz Cream cheese softener
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • ½ cup confectioner sugar
  • 8 oz cool whip
  • ½ envelope Instant white chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh raspberry


  1. Mix the cream cheese and milk until smooth. Add the rest of ingredients and mix a high speed for couple of minutes. Can be refrigerate for up to a week.

Tips: You may sub the raspberry for any other fruit.

does the cool whip become liquid? do you use this with frosting?

I have only been able to find sugar-free white chocolate instant pudding, can this be used?

What is cream cheese softener?

Lillian09 Says... 2011-07-28 10:37:05

Hi, to answer your questions; *The frozen cool whip (Thawed) doesn't become liquid, and I only used this as a filling. You can use your regular icing. * Regular instant vanilla pudding can be substituted for the white chocolate pudding * Softened cream cheese( room temperature) Hopefully this helps!

do you mash the raspberries before adding them or just add them whole?

Lillian09 Says... 2011-07-28 19:52:24

Hi, yes you add them whole and blend well.

This sounds delicious! Thank you for sharing the recipe. One question before I make it and decide whether or not to double the recipe.... have you tried freezing the filling?

Lillian09 Says... 2011-07-29 17:04:11

Hi ycknits! I have not tried freezing the filling yet, but have left it in the refrigerator for up to ten days with it staying fresh. :)

@Casper, Walmart carries the regular white chocolate pudding mix.

Delicious! I could literally just eat it off a spoon. In fact, maybe I'm doing that right now....I'll never tell! ;) Awesome recipe Lillian, thanks for sharing! :)

Mandygc Says... 2011-10-16 19:46:32

Maishelle Says... 2011-10-18 17:16:29

I used this filling in a German Chocolate Cake last weekend. It was DELICIOUS! Thank you for posting this recipe. :) I plan on using this as my favorite raspberry filling and may try other fruits later on.

Recipe sounds great. Thanks so much for sharing it. Sounds yummy.

Luvbites Says... 2011-11-10 14:58:27

This sounds amazing and will be trying it tomorrow. Are you able to keep it out or does it need to be refrigerated? I will be using icing instead of cool whip.

srkmilklady Says... 2012-01-04 12:19:16

I am looking for the answer to the same question as Luvbites...how long can a cake be unrefrigerated with this filling?

rachelh37122 Says... 2012-01-18 08:54:21

hi! i'm wanting to use this recipe (i'm substituting strawberries) as a filling in a devil's food cake. could i use chocolate instant pudding mix instead?

Lillian09 Says... 2012-01-29 16:09:04

Hi lady's! Sorry I took so long to answer your questions. The longest I have left a cake out unrefrigerated using this filling is two days. Also, I have never used a different chocolate pudding in this filling, if you do, please let me know how it comes out. Lastly, the pudding packet is 3.4 oz.

Lillian09 Says... 2012-01-29 16:30:11

Hi DivaBaker, sorry I took so long to respond. To answer you question, I have never measured how much the recipe produced. I have enough to do two 10" cakes.

I just made this with blackberries for the filling in a french vanilla cake and it is sooo delicious! I made 9 mini cupcakes with the extra batter, added a swirl of this filling and my husband and I devoured them all in minutes! So good, thanks for the recipe!

Thank you soooo much for posting this recipe. I was in need of something to fill a 1/2 sheet lemon cake for my husband's high school reunion and I knew I wanted raspberries. Everything else I looked at was runny and I did not want that. Because of the cool whip it was so light and fluffy. I had double batched it because of the size of the cake and I had to use the vanilla pudding since I could not find the white chocolate and it was excellent. Everyone at my husband's reunion absolutely loved the cake saying the filling was so light and airy and not overly sweet.I have enough lrft over for my grandson's birthday this week.....This will be my go to filling for raspberries forever (it is that good) Next time I will use the white chocolate pudding :)

Lillian09 Says... 2012-08-29 08:23:14

Made this for the first time and my bride and groom LOVED IT!! They want it in most of the cupcakes :) Thank you for this recipe. I will use it every time someone wants a raspberry filling! BTW.... my test run of this filled 24 + cupcakes.
