post #136 of 6396
Macsmom--you're awesome!!! I was going to ask you about the peanut butter cake but I found an answer from you in another thread---so I didn't have to bother you for it!! I can't wait to try some of these combinations!!! My son's b-day is coming up and he LOVES peanut butter so that's first on my list!

Thanks for sharing all this information!!!! And thank you to everyone else too!! I LOVE this site!!!
Why do people say, "You can't have your cake and eat it too?" WHY would someone get cake if they can't eat it?!

Ok share your answer to the PB cake. I've looked for a good recipe that isn't too heavy---I've yet to find one

I'm glad you asked because the recipe originally stated to use yellow butter cake mix, but it doesn't turn out very good with that! (I recently learned through trial).

I had always used white cake mix because I always have it on hand, but I finally broke down and bought the butter mix to make for my cousin. It came out really thick with a heavy texture, so I re-made it with white cake mix and it was wonderful.

Peanut Butter Cake
2 pkgs white cake mix
1 1/2 c creamy peanut butter   
1 1/2 c coffee creamer  
1 c butter, softened       
8 egg whites

Filling
1 jar creamy peanut butter (2 c)   
2 pkgs cream cheese      
2 c powdered sugar
2 T vanilla extract
2 C Bettercreme

what the heck is bettercreme?

I see everyone talking about it. Do I get it in the frozen section, dairy section, or baking section?
Is it dairy and does it spoil without refrigiration?

Oh soooooo many questions, so little time. lol

Bettercreme and Frostin Pride are non-dairy whipped toppings that can survive 5 days on the counter after whipped.

It's hard to find. I buy mine at Smart&Final and I've heard that you can get it from the bakery department at Sam's Club.

You can always use Cool Whip instead, but it must be refrigerated.

Thank you MacsMom.

Let me tell you, it's exhausting trying to find all these alternative ingredients. I usually have my kids in toe and when I come up to the baking section I get a "oh no, not again" because I leterally read all the ingredients on all the products. And finding non dairy items is a job in itself.
next on my list: icon_smile.gif Bettercreme and Frostin Pride

I'm so excited!!!!

OOOOH....maybe I can find it online just like the Loranne oils. ( my right eyebrow is lifting as I speak)

MacsMom if there would be a cable I could purchase that connects to your brains into mine, It would be a really great investment for me.

You are the best! If I haven't thanked you before than I would like to thank you for all the wealth of info you have shared with me.

If you are looking for some unique ways to flavor your cakes try www.amoretti.com - call and ask for a catalog - they will also send you samples. There are some very unusual flavors from this company.

MacsMom Do you whip the bettercream first then fold it in ?
Thanks.
post #145 of 6396
So MacsMom, I was thinking...you should put together a cook book. But then again, you probably don't want the entire world to have your recipes. icon_wink.gif

Yes, I whip it first and then fold it in.

I'd do a cookbook, but I think kakeladi should have first shot at it since she has the *original* WASC recipe... icon_razz.gif

I just replied to fiasmama in a PM about another cake flavor to add:

"I was reading in another thread about acheiving a chocolate 'crunch' and someone came up with pouring straight melted chocolate over the torte and popping in the fridge to harden.

I'm going to add that to my cake list as a chocolate-dipped ice-cream cone! I'll spread Bettercreme whipped with white-chocolate pudding over the hardened chocolate. But of course, I have to try it first to be sre it works!"

Anyone have any other thoughts about how to make this cake come alive?

Maybe some chopped toasted nuts w/ a drizzle of raspberry or strawberry or cut up mar. cherries (or mar. cherry flavored bettercream). Ok, I'm thinking of a yummy sundae at this point!

I was wanting to ask if you have a "jelly" filling. For some reason kids love PB & J. i was thinking of a PB & J cake (PB cake & jelly filling), but not sure on how to go about the filing. Sorry if it's been answered.

I wish Baskin Robbins was open this late!!

I do have a Sundae cake already, but I like the chopped nuts idea!

I am too lazy to make my own fruit fillings, so I buy them CountryKitchenSA.com
Look under "pastry fillings". Unless anyone knows of a cheaper source!
