An Amaretto flavored custard filling goes wonderfully well with chocolate cakes.

This was, surprisingly, a little bland. However, after it soaked into the cake a little longer (2nd day)it tasted delicious. I made a three layer cake and put this between one layer and an apricot filling between the other layer. They complimented each other well. I topped it off with Special Buttercream Frosting also found on this site.

This filling is a basic custard, very nice texture. I did need to add more amaretto.

Very good and easy to make. I substituted almond extract for amaretto liqueur.
