In doing some covert reconnaissance (this was a surprise party), I found out that she loved the cake, however, the buttercream icing was a little "much" and was a little too sweet.
So I endeavored to make my own version of this cake for her party, and make it a little bit better. I read tons of google recipes, and decided on this one for the custard filling.
|Filled and ready for the crumb coat!|
Mock Whipped Cream Frosting with Pudding Mix
4 tbsp. flour (2T cornstarch)
1 c. milk
1/2 c. margarine (butter)
1/2 c. shortening
1 c. sugar (approx 5 C icing sugar, possibly more)
2 tbsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. instant pudding mix (any flavor desired) (vanilla, and about 3T)
Combine flour and milk in saucepan and cook over LOW HEAT until thick, stirring constantly. Cream the margarine, shortening and sugar together for 4 minutes. (Can use all margarine if desired).
Add cooled flour mixture and vanilla; beat an additional 4 minutes. spread on cooled cake. (Basically, it was NOT sweet and kinda gross with only 1C icing sugar, I just kept dumping it in until it tasted good)
|It was really pretty!!|
|Truly delicious. Make this cake for a party, and you've got friends. It's SO good!|
