I have a bowl full of juicy bavarian creme! icon_sad.gif

I followed the recipe to the "T" - Question ~ how long does the packages of unflavored gelatin last? I have a box that I bought... ohhhh.... 3 yrs ago. icon_redface.gif I did not see any expiration dates on the envelopes. That is the only thing I can think of why the bavarian creme did not set.

Now working on fudgy filling to replace bavarian! thumbs_up.gif

Also I would like to add.. I know it doesn't belong in this forum.. but you ladies are awesome! I have spent a few hours on here reading up on tips and recipes and ideas and I have to say.. the fudgy filling/frosting from Squirrelly Cakes is sooo yummy and the recipe for the Chocolate Explosion Cake was out of this world (I used that for one of the tiers on my SIL wedding reception cake), and I went out and purchased the bismark tip to fill cupcakes with... icon_biggrin.gif Oh my.. how fun is that! My son asked me to open a pastry shop! He said he would help... EAT IT! haha

Thank you ladies - all of you! Thank you for your time and your shared talents! I appreciate you.

Hi Janice~

Thank you for reminding me about the GUYS on this forum! I did not mean, I did not think, I did not realize they are out here also! Guys, please forgive me - I know you are all awesome too and such a great help and inspiration to us all.

The Bavarian Cream recipe that I used came from LadyCakes website. The end result tasted good.... but just was not set up right, so it has to be the gelatin! I was going to buy some at the store and noticed they did not have an expiration date on them either - so I thought I would save money and take a chance - well - I have learned from this and promise to NOT do it again. thumbs_up.gif

I also tried LadyCakes recipe for whipped frosting and it was not only easy, it was yummy! icon_surprised.gif)

Time for work ~ have an awesome weekend everyone!

Hey Debbie you have a great weekend too! Thanks for the recommendation on the bavarian creme, I'll have to give it a try (with fresh gel). I wouldn't have thought the gelatin would "expire" either!
