There are custard recipes on here under recipes, or you can buy pre-made custard at the store. It's like a vanilla flavoured stuff that resembles a pudding in consistency. I've used it as a cupcake filling before. My hubby's family is Scottish, so custard is a regular coating of many desserts - like its own food group!

As tracey said, it's similar to pudding....usually called 'egg custard'. To me, it's not as sweet as pudding......very bland.
You might use Bavarian Cream filling that comes in the sleeve....no cooking; no refrig'ing needed....and it tastes goodicon_smile.gif

what does bavarian cream filling taste like?? I would like to find a stable filling and frosting that tastes liked whipped cream. There is an italian pastry shop in my town and I don't think its actually whipped cream, but boy is it delicious.
