Yeah! Thanks for the answer! I'm so excited to try it this weekend. Can you use this for cake filling too or just cuppies? If you do the filling in cake and still want to decorate pretty much, do you just use a BC???

It's what my local supermarket bakery uses. If you ask for it at the bakery some bakery managers will sell it to you.

I got mine at our cake supply place. I talked to the lady there about it and she named 3 kinds and said they were all comparable. Rich's Bettercreme, Dawn Velvet Top, and I think the third one was called Pilgrim's Pride??? I'll do some digging and see if that's the right name. Maybe someone could get some for you and overnight it? Mel's in Iowa too right?

Hahahahahaha!!! Sorry, but that just brings to mind all kinds of visuals!! Some guy looking at you all crazy because you are asking him for some Pilgrim's pride to put on a cake!!

Ok, I swear someone asked me a question... oh, Fiddle, sorry. Let me answer you before I forget again!!

I fill with a single hole in the top middle using either a #10, #12, or #22, depending on what I'm doing. If I'm doing a swirl on top with the same stuff then I just fill with the same star tip, why dirty up two tips? I don't know why some people have trouble getting enough filling in there... mine are like 85% filling when I'm done with a single hole. Hehehe. Me likey the fillin'!! I was going to post a pic of it, but alas, I am not able to so here... http://www.sweetcakesonline.net/bettercreme_ideas.htm I put it at the top of that page I sent you to before. That way you can see how much filling my cuppies have.

Bzer, you CAN add heavy whipping cream, but it will make it a little different. It's hard to explain... I did it one time because I overwhipped it a little and didn't want to thaw out a whole second container for just a dab, so I drizzled a little whipping cream in there. It worked just fine. It tasted more cream-ish. (Well, duh?) But it's good, no worries.

If the cupcake explodes, it's overfilled. icon_lol.gif I prefer to call those "Treats for mommy". icon_twisted.gif I just go by feel. It's hard to explain I suppose.

And no, I am not recalling your question! Help me out here, I wanna answer you!!

Thanks ! Its not that I have any trouble filling I have just always dont it that way( 3 holes on top with a # 6 tip ).
You can tell its filled if the top starts to crack, Thats what I look for anyway !
Mel you use way bigger tips then I do. I will have to try that ! I do like the 3holes though it kind of spreads it around ?
