Once again it is cake time. Doble is celebrating his 6th birthday on the 12th. However, with our new baby arriving on the 16th and another family celebration on the 12th, his birthday party will be a week early. Doesn't hurt my feelings. In fact it makes it a bit easier to get it done and out of the way before the new baby arrives. I thought I would share with you a favorite filling amongst the kids for thier cakes.
This can be done with any flavor of pudding. However, my kids love the Oreo pudding filling with added oreos crushed on top.
Easy Custard Cream Filling
1 large box of instant pudding (any flavor)
1 cup milk
1/2 cup whipping cream
1 tsp honey (I have done this with or without the honey)
1. On low/medium speed whip all ingredients until incorporated.
2. Thicken on medium high/high speed.
3. Let set for an hour or so before using (I usually make this a day ahead. I like to make my frosting the day of so this eliminates having to make too many things all on the same day.
Before using in your cake, create a dam using frosting. This will keep your filling from oozing out the sides.
Vanilla with fresh strawberries
White chocolate with raspberries
Chocolate with chocolate chip
The flavors are endless.
