filling good with red velvet cake!? HELP!

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I'm making a red velvet cake for the first time and I'm not sure what fillings go well with that time of cake. Can anyone give me some advice on what filling they've used? Thanks!

I like cream cheese filling in red velvet...vanilla or regular BC is good too. Chocolate is excellent also.... most anything goes well with red velvet.

I have never made a "from scratch" red velvet before, can you post to this thread when the cake is done to let me know how your recipe turns out? If it's good, can you post the recipe? I'm looking for a good tried and true recipe.

Thanks!

well in the south red velvet is meant to have a cream cheese and pecan filling, no one would eat it any other way

I just did one for a wedding and flavored the filling with cheesecake flavoring; it was really good.

I beg to differ - I'm a southern girl and I will never eat RVC if it has cream cheese frosting on it thumbsdown.gif cream cheese frosting is fine on carrot cake, it's fine on spice cake...but don't mess up a lovely RVC w/ cream cheese icon_mad.gif Triple YUCK!

I'm very passionate about RVC...it began at a young age, I was about 7 years old, and one of my relatives made an RVC... well I took a bite, and loudly announced "This is nasty it tastes like rotten cheese, it's not like Gramma's"
Needless to say momma told me I hurt her feelings and made me write an apology note- which I discovered that she saved (she gave it to me this past Christmas) Honest truth this is what I wrote at the age of 7 -

"Dear Aunt _______
Momma said I hurt your feelings, I hope they get better. I'm sorry you messed up your cake. Gramma's cake is yummy, you should ask her to teach you to make it like she makes it, then yours will be yummy like hers.

P.S. do you still like me
P.P.S. I don't know why I need to say I'm sorry, I was telling the truth your cake was gross.

After that little incident, momma made me write the "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" about 50 times...didn't really work in the area of RVC - RVC is the one subject that will get me fired up - either make it the right way, or don't make it at all.

So, newlywed,
What IS the right way? Now you have me curious!I like it with cream cheese, but my best girlfriend has it with this boiled icing, I made it on her request. It is very creamy andy not too sweet. Is that what you like? It has a little bit of a flour taste to it though, but nothing objectionable. Please tell us what the right way is!!!!!

This will probably horrify newlywedws, but my daughter's friend just requested a 21st b-day cake, as follows:
red velvet cake (GREAT recipe, Sarah!)
vanilla bean ice cream filling
cream cheese icing, tinted yellow (her favorite color)
Of course, it needs to stay frozen.
It tastes wonderful! I'm sure the southern gals would kick this cake out of their kitchens.

This is intersteing considering I've never had RVC with anything BUT cream cheese icing. I've done samples and used cream chjeee icing and BC but unanimously my clients prefer the cream cheese.

There is a really nice twist in the RVC on epicurious. I think it's B. Smith's and she used blueberries and raspberries.

I've tried tons and tons of Red Velvet cakes from scratch and I have found the best RVC I've ever eaten was from a post on CC. I even tried Sarh's scratch which is popular, but to me it does not compare to this. Its a doctored cake mix and I have gotten tons and tons of orders for this cake:

1 box DH Red Velvet Mix
4 eggs
1/2 C oil
3/4 C water
1 pk. instant choc pudding
1C sour cream
1 bottle liquid red food color

I too have never had it or made it any way BUT with cream cheese icing. I think it definitely is the best flavor with the red velvet. I even make red velvet cake bites with some cream cheese icing on top that never last til the end of a party...
