so i was looking for a clever way to make a really quick and easy thick custardlike filling for a boston cream pie 3 layer cake that i was making. i have made the cooked versions of custard with eggs milk sugar etc and i had also read about stabilized whipped creams with a couple tbsp of vanilla pudding powder but just for curiositys sake i tried a cup and a half of whipped cream and a full box of pudding mixture and whipped in a mixer like i was making whipped cream. its fantastic! thick like a custard and very vanilla without being overly sweet. its great! anyone else ever filled a cake with a similar concoction??
