2.2 Prepare a variety of fillings, coating/icing and decorations for gateaux, tortes and cakes

Buttercreams may be flavoured with liqueur, pulps and/or other flavours.

Boiled Creams may be custards, bavarois, winecreams and chibousts. Also commonly used in modern patisserie are poached creams like crème caramel or crème brulee.

Chocolate may be used as ganache either with butter or fresh cream, flavours and/ or liqueur or baked (mudcake).

Fresh and cooked cheese fillings – may include sweet mixtures of Cottage cheese, Cream cheese, Ricotta, Mascarpone and Quark.

Fruit may be used fresh, poached, as a pulp, boiled and or thickened with pectin, gelatine, or starch (jelly, jams).

Fruit may be frozen after initial preparation to change consistency and retain colour and flavour. Commercial manufactured fillings are readily available.

Fresh Cream and/or Imitation Cream based may be flavoured with liqueur and/or fruits, including chocolate and other flavours.

Creams may be stabilised with agar agar, gelatine and or starches. Special powders are commercially available to stabilise cream, which are freeze and thaw stable.

It is important not to overwhip cream before using in mousses and fillings because further mixing can cause the cream to ‘split’, this is when the fat solids separate from the liquids causing a granulated or lumpy mouth feel, a smooth feel is desirable.

Marzipan and Nougat may be used by itself or with the addition of liqueurs and /or other flavours.
