Easy Raspberry Filling

I have had requests to post this easy filling. I also use this for strawberry filling, but I will still post it separately.


  • 1 small jar SEEDLESS raspberry jam 1 small box raspberry jello


Pour the powdered jello in a bowl. Nuke the Jam for one minue. Pour jam into bowl with jello. Stir until dissolved. Refrigerate overnight if possible. Note: If you find it is too firm to spread, nuke for a few seconds. Always pipe a buttercream dam and do not fill filling above dam. This filling will soak into cake, so I recommend spreading a light layer of buttercream down first.

I am trying to find a way to make this a tiny bit thicker. I LOVE this recipe and it's sooooo easy. My kids won't stop eating it. I had to take it away. I'm using this for a wedding cake tonight. Wish me luck! So yummy. Thanks!
what would jello be in the uk?
Hi Loopilu, do you have flavored gelatins in the UK? Jello is the brand name here in the States.
three4thequeen--i find after it has set back up in the frig with the jello and jam, it has a nice thick(er) consistancy. I always make it 24 hours in advance to let everything set back up.
loopilu- jello is a brand name but is only a powdered form of jelly, rather then the jelly blocks.
Where on earth can you buy raspberry jam with no seeds?? Do I stain it? Duh? Please help!
Miss Confection. I find it in Walmart right next to the regular raspberry and strawberry. :) I didn't know it was there until I started looking...
This is a wonderful, easy recipe. I am also going to try it with peach preserves/jello. Like to try with apricot preserves, but I don't think they make apricot jello, do they?
I don't think they make apricot jello but you could try unflavored gelatin.
Or you could try with peach or pineapple. I actually have apricot/pineapple preserves that I might try out!
sounds interesting! Looking forward to trying it!
Has anyone ever tried ths for a wedding cake?
Would a cake filled with this need to be refrigerated?
Are you going to dissove the jell-o like you were making regular jell-o? or what???!!
I made this recipe and didn't like the flavor.
You can always pass raspberry jam through a sifter to get the seeds out. sorry you didn't like it. That's the thing with is very subjective to ones owns tastebuds. do not dissolve the jello...just pour the powdered jello into the jelly.
Has anyone tried this with unflavored geletin. I have a daughter that is allergic to red dye and I was going to see if I could find a jam with no dye and make it that way. Maybe it would need a bit more sugar?
Occheermommy..I should be ok with unflavored geletin. The jello in addition to additional flavor, thickens the jam. This can be used for wedding cakes...just ensure you spread a THIN layer of butter cream first, as this does seep. AND ensure you pipe a stiff dam. Jello is not dissoved...just pour from the box onto the jam in a bowl and stir real good. I always let overnight. It will not be gritty.
