I’ve got another killer recipe for you.  I have been searching for years for a creamy and fluffy filling to go into cupcakes or between two soft cookies or even a multi-layer cake.  And when I say years, I mean I’ve been searching at least 10 years.  Nothing has ever caught my eye as THE fluffy filling I’ve been searching for…until Friday night.

I found it!  I just knew by reading the recipe that it was THE ONE!  I ran to the grocery store for the one ingredient I didn’t have to make the filling, came home and whipped up some cupcakes (Martha Stewart’s Devil’s Food cupcake recipe). While they were baking, I got to make the fun part – the creamy white fluffy filling.  Upon tasting the filling for the first time, I squealed with delight – it is THE ONE!  I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!

Here is the finished product and the recipe so you can jump for joy also!

Fluffy Cream Filling – for just about anything!

2 tsp. very hot water

1/4 tsp. salt

7 oz. marshmallow cream

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup icing sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

Put hot water in small bowl, add salt and allow to dissolve; cool.

Whip the remaining ingredients until fluffy.  Add the salt water and whip well again.  Pipe into cupcake centers or between two chocolate cookies, etc.
