Just wondering, how do you think Bavarian Cream (sleeve filling) would taste in a Butter Pecan cake with Caramel icing? Someone told me at the Cake supply store that they had heard it was pretty good. Anyone else tried that combination? Thanks so much everyone....

i haven't personally tried it but i think that would taste very good as butter pecan and caramel can be rather sweet so the bavarian cream would go nicely, imo.

What kind of buttercream would you recommend with Orange Valencia Cake?

MacsMom - I was reading the list again because I want to try a new flavor. I'm making a cake for a CC throwdown and I figure since its not really for anyone I could experiment. The Chai Latte sounds amazing! What i want to know is how you make chai spiced cake. Is it literally as simple as adding chai spice to cake?

Oh gosh! I haven't been receiving e-mail updates! I'll go back and answer questions as I find them...

1. For the Chai spice, I buy Tazo teas Chai Spice concentrate (it comes in a box by the teas - I get mine at Target) and just use that in place of water, full strength.

2. I'm not a fan of bavarian creme filling icon_razz.gif . Not just sweet but tastes too synthetic - like the pudding cups that aren't in the refrigerator. I like the mock cheesecake filling (I've begun referring to it as "whipped" cheesecake filling icon_wink.gif ). Two packages of JellO Cheesecake pudding mix whipped into Bettercreme or Frostin Pride - or Cool Whip).

3. Banana Split cake... I make 3 different cakes, but I use HALF the recipe so it's one box mix, 1 cup flour, etc...

The banana cake half-recipe is a banana mix with one mashed banana added to it (for the full version I use 3 bananas with 1 box banana mix + 1 box white mix), banana pudding mix added to it, and I use 1 container of Yoplait banana cream pie yogurt instead of sour cream.

The cherry cake is white cake mix with 1 dram of LoRann cherry flavor and red food coloring. It's good with 1/2 c diced marashino cherries added to it or mini-cherry chips (cherry flavored white--er, pink--chocolate chips).

MacsMom, you are a doll for sharing all this with us ... icon_biggrin.gif

I have a question for the benefit of those of us who are not able to find Bettercreme. Several different times I have seen a reference to using Cool Whip in place of Bettercreme, Is that right? We can use Cool Whip in these amazing Bettercreme recipes??? Every time I read about your cheesecake filling, I almost cry because I can't get Bettercreme.

Thank you again!

Yes... or homemade whipped cream. Bettercreme and Frostin' Pride are similar to a whipped topping, but thick enough to decorate a cake with.

You cannot use it as a frosting underneath fondant though, because it's high liquid content melts fondant.

If you use Cool Whip, you have to refrigerate the cake. Bettercreme and FP are non-dairy and can be left out for 5 days once "applied to product".

Oh dear ... now I will have to go back and read all those Bettercreme recipes and ideas. I skip past most of them because I know I can't use them!! I know what I will be doing for the next week or so! Thanks so much, MacsMom!

Amazing! I LOVE the creativity and sharing on this website. I have a little time off (no orders for 2 weeks=PLAYTIME!) so I'm looking forward to letting my mind wander. icon_smile.gif Thank you, thank you to the flavor Goddesses of CC!
