I couldn't get it to turn out right. i don't know where i went wrong. I wanted to try this so badly. Does it work as a cake filling?

Sounds good! I'll give it a try. Dee...what happened? Did it not firm up on you? Maybe you over mixed the whipped topping. I never get a good consistency with real whipping cream. I ususally use Nutriwhip. It holds up better.

I love it! It was absolutely delicious. I wasn't sure how long to let the cream whip until it formed peaks, so I had to look that up on google, but everything turned out perfectly! Thanks for the recipe!

I LOVE this recipe. I used it as filling for my nephews cake recently and have decided to use if to fill strawberries for mothers day. Thanks for sharing!

I just made this recipe for the first time and it is AMAZING! It is a great filling for the cake I'm making, and it is absolutely delicious- but not over-sweet. Thanks for the wonderful recipe! :)

this sounds perfect....any good suggestion as to what frosting would go good with this as a filling?

Thanks for the recipe

sounds much filling does this make?

Jayde Says... 2010-07-20 09:34:27

Miss- It makes about 3 cups.

Ashley- I use it with vanilla BC, and strawberry BC. I must admit it is really good with the strawberry BC.

Dee- I use it as a cake filling. I whip the cream on high for maybe 3 minutes? When you pull the beater up and turn it over the cream should stand up straight. The white chocolate chips are a PITA to melt in the micrwave, but I have found that they do not need to be melted totally and you definitely do not want to over microwave them, you can burn them that way. If you melt for 30 secs and then mix and repeat until the chips reach a softened butter consistancy it mixes nicely with the cream cheese that way.

Made this for a filling in a dark chocolate cupcake. Brought some to work as trial - everyone loved it! It's a nice change from the thick, sweet fillings lately!

On a side note, if you leave the white chocolate in the car on a 90 degree day - you don't need the microwave! Just open and pour in!

This recipe sounds so good and I want to try it for my son's birthday cake this weekend but I don't understand that the ingredients has 1.2 tsp. shortening but it doesn't say when to add it to the recipe. I hope someone can help me out. Thank you

Just made it...light, fluffy, creamy...understated. Definitely a keeper! I would say that I might even reduce the amount of whipped cream by 1/4 - 1/2 next time to make it thicker. I left out the shortening as Bela89 was instruction as to when to add it. Will go great with my chocolate fudge cake layered with some ganache.
