raspberry mousse filling - Page 2

Thank you guys for all the suggestions!!! I'm sure I'll be able to pick one out of the bunch!!!

I sent them the price quote and haven't heard back yet!! I may not be needing the recipe afterall!! I told them they needed to let me know asap so I could get everything going - cakes like the one she wants takes a lot of prep time, I don't think a lot of people realize that!

Thank you again!

Well I went to my local cake store and low and behold guess what I found... Rich's Bettercream!! They carry it - I had no idea! They had it in a back room (not visible to shoppers) in a refridgerator! I saw it on a list taped to the counter saying it wasn't part of a sale - but anyway I said, oh you carry Rich's and he was like, yes we sure do!! So I grabbed one!! It was $5.29 for the carton - does that sound right?

I also just bought a new airbrush - so I picked up some supplies for that!! It's such a teeny tiny store and it's jammed pack literally from floor to ceiling with cake/candy making stuff! I could be in there all day and still not see everything! Everytime I go I find something new I didn't know they carry!!

So anyway - if they decide they want the cake I now have the bettercream to try. Do I have to do anything special with it besides whip it up as per the directions and then just fold in the raspberry?

thanks again!

Heres one that Melvira swears by ! and yes it is good !
You want a super easy mousse?? This ROCKS... put 2 cups of bettercreme in your mixer bowl, add half a cup of milk, and one (4 serving) package of any flavor of pudding, whip until fluffy. (Only takes a minute!) This is so amazingly yummy!!! And it can be used to fill and ice cupcakes or cakes too! Mmmmmmmmmmmm!!!
I always add any flavors or the filling sleeves in the bettercreme before I whipp it . Im not sure if you can fold in the puree or not .

yep, Most people think its less sweet then buttercream , Its thicker and PLEASE dont over whipp!! whip it till its thick but not butter LOL! no matter what just whip till its thick enough ! The first time I made it I didnt let it whip long enough and it was like melted coolwhip LOL!! You can also whip it right out of the freezer its not frozen solid. shake it well first though. Its so yummmy ! I keep several in the freezer all the time .Is fast and simple !

If you look in my photos the Oreo cupcakes I posted a few days ago have a swirl on top and they are bettercreme and you can see how thick is it !

A traditional style would be to make a buttercream with egg yolks either Neo classical, IMBC or SMBC and add a seedless raspberry puree.

Trust me once going tradional you will not go any other way. It is absolutely the cat's meow.

Ok - so after all of this searching and asking about the raspberry mousse her mom called me to make a zillion changes - she didn't like the price I quoted so she wanted to start cutting out stuff (shocker - aparently the girl was wanting the stars and mom wasn't willing to pay!) so they nixed the raspberry mousse and now just want strawberry preserves! Ok - can do!

But she does still want one layer to be chocolate mousse - so I guess I can just use the recipe above with the bettercream and add chocolate pudding?? Or is there a better way to do it?

thanks again for all of your help - I hope this whole cake turns out ok - the girl wanted perfection at any price - the mom said she'll have to make due!!! LOL

Yes the recipe I posted with the bettercreme ,milk ,pudding will work well, or you can add some Hershey Ice cream topping to it then whip it ! Its all delicious ! with the milk, pudding, is more creamy type and bettercreme with just a syrup added it more of a whipped filling ! Just what ever type you want ! Its all good !

Thanks fiddlesticks - so just the plain Hershey's chocolate syrup? That would be great - I don't feel like having to go to the store again!! I think I'm out of pudding so one less trip would be nice if I can just use plain old choc. syrup! I have a ton of it!!!

thanks again

yes ice cream topping, any of the hersheys syrups they have the choc malt /strawberry, peanut butter plain choc,just give it a pretty good amount .Taste it and make sure its the flavor you want and whipp it up ! It will change the color,but if they want choc Im sure color wont matter. Hope it works out for ya !
