Red Velvet cake +?? Filling

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm going to attempt a Red Velvet cake and am unsure what kind of filling will be good. I will be covering the cake with fondant. Any ideas?

Cream cheese filling usually seems to be popular with red velvet

Cream cheese all the way!

I just made a red velvet cake with Rose Levy Beranbaum's "Dreamy Creamy White Chocolate Frosting" which is a white chocolate and cream cheese icing. It was really good!

I have been making my red velvet cakes with a coconut mousseline filling. It's sooo good!

A really tasty alternative to regular cream cheese icing is add 1/3-1/2 can of whipped milk chocolate icing you get from the grocery store. The resulting icing tastes like malted milk balls. Goes great with red velvet cake!

Cream cheese icing is the traditional icing for red velvet cake.

I set my cakes out naked at tastings, so everybody can mix and match different flavors. Two of the last three people that chose red velvet....chose either caramel BC (caramel folded into SMBC) or my SMBC made with brown sugar or their fillings. Go figure.

I know your SMBC is delicious, but I'm sorry, thats just gross. Goes to show everything goes with everything...except chocolate cake & carrot cake togethre. But hay, I could be wrong. icon_wink.gif

Yeah, someone did a cake that had a layer of chocolate, carrot, and cheesecake together.

I vote for cream cheese icing. Then again, I would probably eat cream cheese icing on cardboard. icon_lol.gif

I made this also and agree! This frosting was amazing with the red velvet cake!

How could caramel BC and red velvet cake be gross? It's a (faintly) chocolate cake. Chocolate and caramel go great together. Some exclaimations of eeeew I can totally jive with, but chocolate and caramel? Say it ain't so!! icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

I find that there are two basic camps in the RV filling debate. Cream cheese or just good ole vanilla BC. I think it depends on what you grew up with. I think both are good, but the tang of cream cheese is really good with the subtle cocoa flavor of the RV cake.

And I don't know... I like chocolate zucchini bread... chocolate and carrot cake might not be all that horrid together. Kind of like chocolate chips in an oatmeal cookie.
