Ingredients for your cream filling.
You will need:
- whipping cream
- a couple of tablespoons of powder sugar
- and a small box of instant vanilla pudding. 3.4 oz.
How to Make Your Cream Filling
To start you will also need to use a KitchenAid or a handheld mixer. Add your powder sugar to your cream while mixing. Mix for a few minutes to thicken up your cream.
Then slowly add your box of vanilla pudding. It’ will start to get bubbly and light.
It will quickly thicken. At this point it will still be a little grainy, and lots of air pockets- It’ll probably look like this:
Let it beat for about 30 seconds more, it will smooth out and the pudding will dissolve. It’s done! You don’t want to keep beating and over beat it. Once it is smooth and creamy stop the beater.
Do I need to refrigerate cream filling?
Yes, because it is made with milk product keep it in the fridge. You can store it in an air tight container, or in pastry bags ready to pipe until you can add it to your desserts!
Do I need to refridgerate my pastries and cakes after the cream filling is in?
If your dessert will not be eaten within a few hours of making I recommend refrigerating it. Especially if it needs to sit over night or a few days.
