Ready In:
1 large cake filling




  • In a small bowl, melt white chocolate in microwave (heat for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat until completely melted smooth).
  • In a medium bowl beat heavy cream until it holds soft peaks.
  • In a medium bowl, beat pudding into milk for 2 minutes.
  • In a large bowl beat together cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt until creamy smooth. Beat in the melted white chocolate.
  • Stir the pudding into the cream cheese mixture. Stir in 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture to lighten. Then fold in another 1/3 of the whipped cream and then fold in the remaining 1/3.
  • Chill 15 minutes and use as a filling for a cake.

Questions & Replies

  1. This was pretty good. I used it to make a cupcake filling. If I use it again for that purpose, I'll cut it in half. It needed a little more cream cheese and/or a good bit less whip. Not sure how much less, just less. It diluted the cream cheese just a bit too much. I make a simple Chocolate Eclair filling, any this reminded me of that but just with a hint of cream cheese (I know it's not cream cheese frosting, or I'd have gone that route if that's what I wanted, just needed a little more :) )


  1. This tastes great but is nothing like Costco's cream cheese cake filling. It is really soft and runny, not suitable for a filling unless you're planning on using a cake dam. This is not at all like the consistency of Costco's filling, theirs is more like a pastry cream.
  2. I am curious about the 1 ounce package of instant pudding. I know they come in 3 or 5 ounce packages but I didn't know they came in 1 ounce packages. Is this a misprint or is this accurate? Thank you very much for the recipe, I have been wanting this recipe for the longest time and have not been able to find it until now.
  3. Girl... This stuff here.....SLAMMIN' for a cake filling!!! Fluffy but sturdy and it is versatile. But more important not gritty and very delicious. Hmmm..'very delicious'... for some reason when I keep saying that... It sounds like bad grammar. Never mind that though... I am a serious Baker and I SO needed this in my 'recipe arsenal'. GOD Bless.
  4. Awesome, spectacular, and delicious! I found folding didn't incorporate the whipped cream and pudding/cream cheese (which could totally be my error), but I found that just a real quick stir did not ruin the fluff factor. Thanks soulcandybt for a great recipe. Made for New Kids on the Block tag game. I will be making again and again.
