Squeeky - yes, you should be able to fold the two together and get a nice result. There is also the option of using Lorann flavoring, they make a mango that you could mix into the mock recipe. Best of luck and let us know how it turns out for you!! Glad to hear you're trying it!

Rosie... I'm telling ya... you can do so much with it! icon_lol.gif And people just go nuts for it! I'm so glad you've been enjoying success with it. I'm doing great, thanks for asking. How about you? I've been having so much fun with my boys I'm hardly on here any more. They're just a full time, laugh-a-minute circus show some days. Sure, there are frustrations, but the pay off is so huge! thumbs_up.gif

I doubled the recipe when I made the mwi, and I say I got 2-4 cups. It really was plenty though. I was able to fill a 10 inch and 8 inch round.

Has anyone mixed PW Bettercreme with strawberry pie filling? I'm wondering if it would be stable enough for a cake filling.
post #1196 of 1302
Thread Starter 
Yes, stable filling! Just 'lighten' the pie filling by stirring in a little PW, then fold the two together. Good stuff! You don't *have* to lighten like that, but I think it gives a better result. I'm always worried I'll deflate it, even though I think it would be fine. icon_rolleyes.gif

Ok, I tried to read this forum last year, but gave up coz I was jealous of our lack of Bettercreme here in the UK, but finally decided to try the mock whipped icing recipe posted a few pages back, and OMG, it's AMAZING!

I had a bit of trepidation trying a frosting recipe with flour in, it just sounds strange, but it somehow works. Also used double the amount of butter coz we didn't have any shortening and it came out great.

It's now my personal mission to convert everyone to whipped icing!!

Has anyone mixed this with a the cookie dough filling? Was it good, I find the cookie dough filling so "heavy" for my taste would love to "lighten" it up!

Although I'm not sure exactly which recipe you're speaking of, it should work just fine for that. It's great for lightening up any fillings and icings that are just too heavy. Just fold together any filling you choose, for example curd or sleeve type fruit fillings, etc. It will make them much lighter on the palate! And you can make any type of cookie or candy type filling, crushed oreos for cookies and creme, crushed CChip cookies for a CChip Cookies and creme, etc. And you can get creative... I love the pineapple orange sandwich cremes, crush those up for a pineapple orange cookies and creme filling, and I add a few drops of extract! SO GOOD! icon_lol.gif Then, chopped peanut butter cups or any other candy bar makes awesome candy bar fillings.
