HELP !!! What filling goes well with pistachio cake???

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi - I'm making a cake today for a function at church tomorrow - I want to make something really different. I'm making a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for those who might not like "different" cakes....anyway, I've always wanted to try a cake extender with pistachio pudding. For those of you that have tried it, is it good? I'll be making it with a white cake mix. Also, is there a filling that you would recommend with it? Does almond go with pistachio? I'm thinking it might be good but not sure. There's a recipe on this site for almond custard filling. I think it sounds yummy.

Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks !!

A deep choclate fudge filling and frosting sound good to me and a nice color contrast.

I'm thinking pistachio has its own distinct flavor...I think I'd avaoid adding another nut flavor...

I remember my Mom made a pistachio pudding filling for her pistachio cake, and it was awesome! It was perfect, and light and her Christmas specialty.
But I'd steer away from another nut flavor for filling. Keep it simple and light, as pistachio does have a very distinct flavor.

Thanks. After I posted I was wondering about putting another nut flavor with the pistachio. I wasn't sure if chocolate would go. I may try that or the pistachio filling. Both sound YUM .....

I can't believe how much I love putting fillings in cakes! I've never done it until I found this site a few months ago (I'm a newbie) - and I think it's so much better than having BORING cake all by itself. And so many more compliments, too. "What IS that in the middle of your cake"? "MMMMMMMMM". LOL

More comments on the filling for the pistachio cake are appreciated. I'm going to throw this thing together later today.

I don't know about cake flavors, but my favorite ice cream is pistacio with almonds, and it is even better with chocolate swirled into it, so the three flavors might very well work in a cake too.

Let us know how it turns out, I'd like to try that myself sometime. Janice

I have made the cake extender with pistacho and everyone really loved it. I made a cupcake cake, so no filling, but my frosting has almond oil in it and it went really good. It is definitely a favorite at my house.

I had a cake once that had pistachio, and the filling though it seemed unusual at the time, was very good...pineapple. Go figure, but it was yummy!
