I am in need of an EASY raspberry mousse filling for a white cake - I appriciate any help or suggestions anyone may have!!

Could I mix a raspberry puree into dreamwhip? Would that be "mousse" like?

Please and Thank You!

What about blending raspberry filling (the sleeved kind, like from Henry & Henry or Lawrence) and whipped cream? You could add a bit of sugar and 10x to cool whip to stabilize it. It's not a true mousse maybe...but it would certainly be good! thumbs_up.gif

raspberry puree into dreamwhip? Yes That will work, or the Red raspberry sleeves( delicious) Mixed into the bettercreme ( if its available ) in your area !

Yes- I believe we do not have bettercream in my area so I thought the next best thing might be the dreamwhip - would I have to add anything else to the dreamwhip or will it just be ok with straight up dreamwhip with the added raspberry?

Thanks so much - I'm trying to "satisfy" a 16yr old!! LOL - She and her mother called me today wondering if I could fit them in for this weekend - they procede to ask me to do a topsy turvey cake with all these bells and whistles, zebra stripes, stars on wires, a gumpaste #16 and lots of glitter!! Oh and could you do two different mousse fillings????? It's only for 50 ppl so it's not that big!!! Sure - no problem! I will be costing you!!!

I think it should be ok ,but if it seems thinner then you want I would add a little p.sugar. I would go with the bettercreme if it was me I think its more like a mousse, but if already have the dreamwhip use it and also maybe just whip it a little on the think side ,add less milk then it says?

If you add raspberry puree to SMBC it is exactly like raspberry mousse. I use it as my raspberry filling all the time. SOOOOOOOOO good and it holds up like a dream. If you mix whipped cream with raspberry puree or jam it wil melt down when it gets warm.. the SMBC holds up at room temp and beyond.

with the added milk and using the whisk, it gets very light and creamy. And its doesnt break down like cool whip, dream whip, etc....I use it all the time! I made an "italian cream" using the cream cheese sleeve!!!

Here is another one.
1 Can Raspberry pie filling
2 boxes of raspberry jello
3/4 cup boiling water for the jello
1 16 oz tub of whipping topping.

mix the jello powder and boiling water in a med bow until granules are gone. Take the bowl and place in on top of a larger bowl filled lined with ice.

Mix until jello is jellied a bit, add the pie filling, then add the whip topping. Depending on how thick you want it you can use 2 containers of whip cream.

Also makes a great desert on it's own.


Good Luck.

That's the SMBC and here's a post I did about how to make it..

http://www.cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-594605-.html

Then I just take a bag of frozen red raspberries and bring it to a boil in a sauce pan with 1/2 cup or more of sugar.. then put it through a fine mesh strainer to get the seeds out and then put the strained puree back in the sauce pan (cleaned of any seeds) and add about 3-5 TBSP of cornstarch dissolved in the juice of 1/2 a lemon and some water if needed. WHen it comes to a boil for a minute or two it's done.. remove from the heat and add about a TBSP of lemon zest and let this cool. Add it into the SMBC and you are good to go. I don't usually make a full batch of raspberry SMBC and I do it to taste.. but you should be able to add at least a cup to the full batch.. the more you add the more intense the raspberry tang will be and it is SOOOOOOOOOOOO good. icon_smile.gif If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. icon_smile.gif You can do it with strawberry puree too.. it is good too.. tastes like strawberry ice cream.
