Do some advance planning. Make sure that your clients or hosts are educated about the types of fillings that would be best suited for their events. Fillings can be made from scratch or bought. The fillings made from scratch are highly perishable and should remain refrigerated. New filling recipes should not be tried the night before an event. If you have to do something new, test the recipe out two weeks before. That way, if you need to make changes, you have time to do it or get help. Fillings that come in sleeves at your local cake store can be used right out of the sleeve as they are and the remainder can be refrigerated up to 6 months.
When you find the one, that you believe you want. Wait a day or two and go back and taste it again. If you have your meal planned out already and it is something that you can marginally duplicate, do that, eat it and then go to the baker and try the cake again. Or if you liked it on the spot, see if you can take a slice or two home to try it again, with ”the” meal or something similar, so you can see if it will work. If it doesn’t work, you are on your search again, unless you want to change something in your meal. Or just have a dessert reception.
What Kind of Filling is It? Lemon, chocolate, caramel, banana, apricot, chocolate chip, and some other fillings are easily recognized in a cake just by looking at them. Don’t make your guests guess what they’re eating. Make tent cards for each table that includes this information or add it to the menu card. With so many food allergies out there, you don’t want to be remembered for making someone sick. To Freeze or Not to Freeze. Never freeze a cake filled with a custard filling because it will separate. Whipped cream cakes have been frozen. It depends on the type of whipping cream used. Check the container to see if it tells you that it can be frozen because you do not want your cake to weep. Rose Berenbaum, in her book, The Cake Bible, shows you how to stabilize the whipping cream with gelatin.
