I will always use this as a cake filling from on. I just used it plain without any fruit. I put it beween carrot cake layers. It is yummy. Can't wait to put strwberries with it or try different puddings. Thank you for sharing.
Ok... this is a very simple recipe, but I find the directions vague. I have mixed and mixed and "thick" is not what I would say is happening. The pudding box directions say to heat... I opted not to heat anything and be patient and hope it sets in the fridge. Feeling hopeless.
So easy and so wonderful! I used vanilla pudding and added rum and diced strawberries. Used it to fill a 3 layer White Almond Sour Cream Wedding Cake and frosted with Kittencal's Bakery Buttercream Frosting/Icing for a bake sale at DH's squadron. It was the first thing gone! Thanks for a new favorite cake filling!
I just made this to fill my son's 1st birthday cake. I used french vanilla pudding and it is AMAZING. I used half and half instead of whole milk, and heavy whipping cream. It was very pretty, like a thick mousse. It really held it's form so I was able to pile it on...I looove a good filling. My family couldn't keep their spoons out of bowl!
YUM!!! Awesome recipe and so easy. I used it for Nee Nee's Prized Coconut Cake using coconut cream instant pudding and adding fresh coconut to it. Served this at our Easter Brunch and it was a big hit, everyone raved about the filling - it was perfect w/this cake. Thanks D, I'll be using this from now on for any cake I make. As an update, used this again to make DGS's b-day cake and it was just as special as the first time. This time made Blue Velvet Cake and this filling really set it off, so glad I found this.
Yummy! I used this with coconut pudding and folded in coconut and chocolate chips. I filled a vanilla/coconut cake and frosted with a Cool Whip chocolate-coconut frosting. My husband said the filling was better than the frosting. I'll use this one again!
being a novice cake baker i needed help with the filling and this was PERFECT! i didn't have any whole milk so just used 1/3 cup cremo (10%) and topped up to 3/4 with 1%.
This filling is delicious! I used the vanilla chocolate chip pudding mix and ended up adding a little extra heavy cream because my pudding mix was a little bigger. I made a dark chocolate cake with this filling and homemade chocolate frosting. So tasty!! I will definitely use this recipe many more times to come!
It took discipline to get this into a cake without eating it all from the bowl! Very easy and very rich. I put it between layers of a yellow mix cake with slices of bananas. Yum! Made for PAC April 2008.
I love this recipe. I find myself using it for most of the cakes I make. It holds up so well in a layered cake and it is so easy and tasty too.
