I have Rich's Bettercreme inventions for filling/frosting

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
Hi all! So, I live in Buffalo NY.....home of Rich Products. Rich Products has a cash and carry store. So, I was trying to come up with some alternatives to filling for cakes. I went to Rich's and purchased some bettercreme. And, let me tell you what I have done so far....(yum)

1. for filling...I used 1 cup of liquid bettercreme, whipped to soft peaks. Set aside. mix 1 small box pudding with 1 cup 1/2 and 1/2. I mixed it for a couple of minutes with hand mixer. Then fold the bettercreme into the pudding and refridgerate. OMG! YUMM-O! I used banana cream pudding mix first, for a banana cake I am making with fluffernutter frosting....delicious. This could be frosting and not just filling.

For a strawberry variation (Since I can't find strawberry pudding anywhere that I like) I make a box of vanilla pudding with strawberry quik instead of regular milk. Mix with the bettercreme and then I also pureed about 1 cup of frozen/thawed strawberries and mixed in. WOW! AWESOME! And it really holds it shape.

So, now I am wanting to go buy all kinds of boxes of puddings and try with other "milks". Like if you do chocolate fudge pudding with Chocolate Quik and chocolate bettercreme! OMG!!! icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif

Anyway....any other thoughts?

Here is a recipe I use made with Pastry Pride, I am assuming the same type of product as Rich's Bettercreme. It is very versatile and so good. I add hot water to the instant pudding though and make a very thick paste, flavor it and then add some of the whipped Pastry Pride to lighten it, then scoop it all into the remaining whipped topping and beat till combined. The Kahlua flavored is my most requested, but I did one with Lemon Curd on Sunday and it was delicious.

I don't get Pastry Pride here either. In my area there are no cake supply stores here. I'd have to order either but am afraid of the cost and if it would still be good after shipping.

are these store bought buttercreams? Or whipped toppings or what? We dont have either of those in Montreal and was wondering what they are so I could find out if we have something similar.

I find it at Smart and Final. I don't know if they have stores all around the country, but check at club stores or restaurant supply stores ( some are open to the public)

Thanks for sharing all the recipe suggestions! They sound delicious, and I'm always ready to try new recipes (since I'm still trying to find my favorites). By the way LukeRubyJoy, I'm from Buffalo (Kenmore) too! So I won't have any trouble finding bettercreme - I can't wait to try it!

Ok, in this filling experiment, I decided that I prefer white chocolate pudding with the Strawberry Quik, and the color ends up being a lot better. With the Vanilla, the coloring was kind of coral/orange.

The bettercreme should be available at food supply/resturant stores. I haven't seen it carried in our normal supermarkets around here....sounds like we could use a Smart and Final. Is that a grocery store? We don't have hobby-lobby either.

Bettercreme is like a super-thick heavy whipping cream, but it is non-dairy, and has sugar stuffs added, and other thickeners too. In liquid form, I had to beat it for about 10 minutes on medium speed for soft peaks to form. It has an aftertaste, which I can't call bad or good....just, there I guess.

you can also buy it premade (and precolored) in decorating bags. Just screw on a tip and go. You can also get it by the bucket, I have heard Sam's will sell you a frozen bucket for about $25 or so. I have never tried this. I'm not so large of a decorator that I need this much, or don't have the time to whip it up myself. The liquid can be frozen for a year.

I just stumbled upon that a few months ago! Try mixing it with a little Nutella...it's a hazelnut filling that is TO DIE FOR.

We do about 90% of our cakes in our store here in saline MI using Rich's Bettercream. We also have the buttercream option but most people once they try the bettercream they never go back to buttercream.
