i made this recipe 3 times already and it always came up like a soup. i was wondering if anyone can tell me what imdoing qrong because i fallow the recipe exacly like it says thanks
I found out what the problem was and I have tried to contact the powers that be so that I could change it but to no avail. It has to do with the fact that I was using a VERY OLD microwave oven. I suspect that the time it took for me to heat my mixture to the right temperature was way too much time for everyone else who had higher wattage units and resulted in overheating of the gelatin. I am sorry that it caused so much wasted and confusion. I finally worked out a recipe that tastes as good--or better--and is foolproof no matter what microwave you are using. I am waiting for it to be posted.
Can I make this filling the day ahead, keep it in the refrigerator and then fill the cakes the following day?? If so, will I need to bring it to room temperature before using?? I have to make a birthday cake for Thursday and the request was for a chocolate cake with a strawberry cream cheese filling with buttercream icing - your filling sounds like it would be perfect for this.
