Anyone ordered a cake from Costco? - Page 2

post #16 of 73
Here is the recipe that was on the Wilton forum......Maybe that is where it was seen.....Ken.

1 Pkg Jello Instant French Vanilla Pudding
1 Envelope Dream Whip
1-1/2 cups light cream
4 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese softened
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp Knox unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water

Pour powdered pudding and powdered Dream whip into medium bowl and add the light cream, blend on low speed with electric mixture until blended. Switch to high speed and beat 6 minutes scraping down sides occasionally with spatula. Add softened cream cheese and vanilla and beat another minute. Pour 1/4 cup water into small saucepan and sprinkle gelatin over it. Stir and the let stand for one minute. Heat gelatin mixture over medium heat until gelatin dissolves and mixture thins and turns clear. DO NOT allow to boil. Remove pan from heat and set aside for a few minutes and allow mixture to cool off a bit. Don't let sit too long-it will begin to gel after about 10 mins. or so. Pour gelatin mixture into pudding mixture and beat thoroughly, scraping down sides of bowl for 1 minute. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least 3 hours. When ready to fill cake mix with mixer until nice and creamy. If too thick add a little bit light cream until desired texture achieved. TIPS: recipe can be doubled-use a large bowl. Flavors develop when sitting over night. If cake you are filling is crumbly, pipe filling between layers and spread with knife dipped in hot water. (Recipe courtesy of Carol Chisholm.) Delicious, creamy, not too sweet and sturdy enough not to squish out from between layers. ENJOY!!!!!!

I didn't care for the taste, but that is a personal thing so other people might like it. It had a funny after taste to me. Maybe it was the dream whip powder I don't know. Like I said though tastes are all different so give it a try. I do like the other recipe Patty posted!

What about their cheesecake filling?? Would I just use a box of the cheesecake pudding mix?? I love the cheesecake filling they make.

I have to ask, are their cakes from mixes? frozen? Fresh? And does the icing come pre-mixed or in a bucket? Not to put them down, they make great cakes and we order for work there all the time. And I love their fillings too.

I was wondering because I have a friend who was arguing with me that they use whole ingredients and fresh yada yada.... I told her I thought they were from cake mixes (if not frozen) and that the icing came in a bucket. This all started off by her telling me I couldn't compete with Costco and I told her I didn't try. icon_twisted.gif

I used this recipe except substituted chocolate pudding. I filled cupcakes with it and it got rave reviews. I think I found myself a keeper for a filling that is quite flexible. Thanks for this. I will have to try your other variations also icon_smile.gif

That is great news on the filling!

Thanks for the feedback. I always like to hear what others think before I risk a new recipe! Ingredients can be expensive and I surely don't want to try out a new recipe on a paying customer.

I'm glad you tried the recipe, the exact pudding they use you can't buy at any store, believe, I have looked evrywhere, it's not name brand, they only sell it in bulk to bakeries, that's why I said "ALIKE".

We don't put anything but cold milk to the pudding, nothing fancy or strange, all the recipes we have are really simple.

The preserves we use are regular strawberry, and we mixed them by hand, we just take the vanilla cheescake mousse and mix it, no measurements involved whatsoever, no big deal, the apricot one, we don't even mix a bunch, we put the vanilla mousse on the cake and preserves on top and mix right there and then.

For the filling not coming out of the sides, I can't explain it, we HAVE to make 5 cakes an hour, we usually do 7, or if we don't have to dump icings, take out trash, write on the back-up cakes, deal with members, do boxes, etc, we do 8, so as you can see, no ring of icing, or anything of the sort, we just dump 2 pounds of filling, spread... NEXT!!!!

Hope it helps, does anybody knows what happened to my turkey cupcakes post?

How do you think I can use the costco recipe but get a white result? Vanilla jello pudding comes out yellowish. I don't think I would use the white chocolate pudding for most cakes as white chocolate is not something most like.

Well I think you could use the cheesecake flaovred one, it's very good, and white as well.

When you mix the Costco filling recipe- Do you use a Kitchen_Aid mixer or just a hand held one? If using the Kitchen Aid do you use the Whip attachment?
Thanks

I used my Kitchen Aide and I used the whisk attachment. It worked great!

I love this filling recipe!
