how can it set then??? I mean I left this dessert for a while and it doesn't really melt as in runny but it is kinda firm. When it melt it has the consistency of a cream cheese if it make sense. Pastry cream folded in whipped cream (which I tried before) didn't set at all!
have you tried making a hazelnut buttercream? usually it's for frosting cakes but i have made rolled cakes(lemon) with a buttercream filling...the filling doesn't go anywhere and you can cut it and leave it to sit out for quite a while if need be
