very nice! tried it twice....with regular granulated sugar....it comes out very grainy. Not a good trexture at all!
When tried with confectioners/icing sugar, it came out very smooth & we loved it!
I didn't want to rate this seeing as a changed it too much but wanted to share my experience. Since so many complained of the shortening taste I chose increase the butter and decrease the shortening to about a 65/35 ratio as opposed to 50/50. I also used regular sugar which I turned into powder in my mini processor because I wanted the sweetness but not the grainyness. Excellent vanilla is important and I used the white kind which gave me pure white filling. I had some open evaporated milk in the fridge which I think was to old so I used vanilla flavored coffee cream because I didn't want to use milk and that's all I had. The end result was quite nice and I used it to pipe into the center of my blond two bite brownies which sank in the center while cooling. So thanks for the starter recipe.
**Update:I made this again and used the evaporated milk called for and I hated it. The flavor from t he evap. milk was overpowering and it made the whole thing very smooth a creamy but not in a good way. I seemed to bring out the greasy shortening taste. I have since lowered my rating from a 4 to a 2 star recipe. Stick to sweetened cream and maybe that will work like the coffee cream did for me the first time.
I used this filling for a farewell cake at work. It was a big hit! One co-worker said he didn't like overly sweet stuff, but he came back for a second piece of cake with this filling!
Very good! It's a keeper. My children (ages 3 & 4) ate in straight from the mixing bowl. I'm not sure if white sugar refers to confectioners or granulated sugar. I've used this recipe 3 times. The first time I used it in a german chocolate layered cake with chocolate frosting for 60 children. I used the granulated sugar & it recieved many compliments. The next 2 times I used confectioners sugar in a layered chocolate cake with buttercream frosting (for a birthday party & a cake for home). They were well recieved as well. What sugar do you (the reviewers) use & what does white sugar refer to?
This is the best filling I have ever had and so easy! Just beat the hell out of it and it will be smooth and light. I made the traditional chocolate cake from Hershey's website, split the layers and filled the cake with this filling. I then iced with fudge icing. What a hit! And so beautiful! I will use this filling lots of ways, I am sure.
I this recipe as is is pretty bland.I doubled the recipe to use a whole can of evap milk. I added about 2 cups of powder sugur to get a some what of a sweet taste, and then it was ok. I decided to try this recipe because i am doing a wedding cake soon and i needed a fluffy whipped chocolate moose filling but i didnt want cream in it i was worried about it going sour while the wedding cake set out all day. after i added the additional powder sugar I added about 1/4 cup cocoa powder and it made it awesome!!!! so thats why i gave this 5 stars only if its chocolate.
excellent recipe....sandwiched this filling between layers of puff pastry and it tasted kind of like a cream horn, but better and not as sweet.
THIS IS THE BEST FILLING AND EASY TO MAKE,I MADE IT FOR MY SON'S 1ST BIRTHDAY AND EVERYBODY LOVED IT, I SELL CAKES AND ALREADY HAVE AN ORDER WITH THIS FILLING.
