I just sort of molded my filling to the correct shape, but in other recipes that I saw online - they said you could pipe it in... but I think they cut the top off and piped on top.

I have tried the cheesecake in a tub that someone brought into work. It was ok, but not as tasty as I would have liked. I think it would be firm enough for these.

I have not sold any, but the Emingers berries that you can buy online go for about $9 each berry... plus shipping.

im confused (as usual) how do you mold the filling to the berry? i thought you were to cut from the bottom and use a tip liks bismarck to fill?

Wow, those sound fantastic! I always worry about serving strawberries b/c they're so hard to thoroughly clean and I am afraid someone will get sick. icon_sad.gif

the fruit always cancels out the calories. and if you close your eyes, there are no calories, because you can't see them! icon_biggrin.gif

jescapades... I like your thinking... but I think I would also have to close my eyes when I looked in the mirror!! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif



For the cheesecake stuffed berries that Eminger's makes... watch the video. She bakes the cheesecake and then breaks it up and just stuffs it into the berries by hand.

If you are using a different filling that isn't so dense... like the cream cheese filling that I made, I think you could pipe it in, but you would want to let it set up and try to have it mimic the shape of the piece of berry that you cut out.

Watch the video though to get the idea.

These sound so yummy! Gotta try it.

I went to that Ermingers (sp?) site and apparently she has a patent on it. I find that to be interesting, I had heard of stuffing berries long before her patent date (looked that up too). But hey, "the early worm..." more power to her. icon_cool.gif

Wow - I think I gained 5 pounds just reading that!! Sounds great! Post a pic when you are done.

I don't know what she could patent. Plus she demonstrates how to make them on tv.... hmmmmm. She even published the recipe for the cheesecake filling online.

You can also take a star tip and bore a hole in the backside of the berry and pipe a filling in too.. you can even pop the little piece of berry back in the hole if you wanted to.. I'd eat them too fast.. LOL.

A good one would be a lemon curd with stiffly whipped cream folded in piped into the berry them chilled and then dip in a white chocolate splashed with limoncello and sprinkled with toasted coconut.. I might have to get some berries tonight!!

All I know is that since they are in season and so tasty! I would be lucky if I could get them even washed and filled before they disappeared!

This is great, never thought of this. I have two containers of berries in my fridge. I had no clue what I was going to do with them, but I guess that I will stuff my strawberries!!!!

Well, stop holding out on us and give us the recipe. Pleeeeeaasssse! With sweetened marscapone on top......!! How'd you make the sweetened cheese? What kind of chocolate?

Tip 21 works really well to cut a hole in the back of the strawberry and pull out some insides then just fill the hole w/fruit dip (or whatever...I'm interested in the cookie dough icon_wink.gif )

I also filled Raspberries and drizzled choc on them. My husband is in heaven. I used the choc. covered filled strawberries as the center of a sunflower on a cupcake bouquet for MIL for Mother's Day (belated) post pics when I can

Ohhhh... what do you fill the raspberries with?

Do you have a pic of the sunflowers?

this is crazy! i am soooo excited now! so b/c she has a patent does that mean that they cannot legally be sold? or do we just have to call them something else...

Hi ladies....this is my first post on CC...but I've been an active voyeur for sometime. I must admit, I crack up at some of the topics...I think I read the "I Hate Wilton" discussion from page 1 to page 53 last night...laughing out loud.

Anyway...I was curious about the stuffed strawberries...because I have been doing them for some time. I couldn't believe that someone could actually patent a stuffed strawberry. So I did some research on the US Patent website and learned that she has a patent application on file..but has not been granted a patent. She claims on her patent application that she "invented the idea" to stuff strawberries. Whether that is true or not..you may still sell stuffed strawberries until she is granted a patent. According to the government:

"The terms "Patent Pending" and "Patent Applied For" are used to inform the public that an application for a patent has been filed. Patent protection does not start until the actual grant of a patent."

Hope that helps.. I look forward to interacting more with all of you...you're such a fun group!! icon_biggrin.gif

Just went to Emingers and she is stating that she holds a "published patent" on the invention of the stuffed strawberry idea. She also states that "the premium product I present to you should never be copied." Hmmmmm......I saw someone else post that stuffed strawberries had been done prior to this lady doing it. Does this mean none of us can ever stuff a strawberry or any other berry for that matter????

Doughbelly, welcome! Glad you came out of voyeurism and posted... icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Your post was very interesting. After I read it last night, I went and checked out the US patent site too. She is basically claiming that she invented the whole idea of stuffing a strawberry... hmmmmmm. Seems like she wants no one else to ever stuff a strawberry again. So she filed the patent in 2005. I did a quick search for stuffed strawberries and found a recipe posted back in 2002 for them.

So I'm going to look some more into this when I have time. I wonder if you can actually comment on patents pending to show that the idea existed before the person filed for the patent? I think she has a great product - but I think the idea was around long before she did it. I think she also has some great ideas for the stuffing. But again, I'm not convinced she invented it. I don't think she even needs a patent - she has a great product. Others are bound to try to copy - that is business.

In her web site though, she makes it seem like the patent has been granted. In the US Patent site - it is just in the application status.

Verrrrry interesting!

I like the reality show "Top Chef" but didn't they do that last season? So I don't think that she came up with the idea. Plus I had seen that on tv years ago, actually I was a kid and I thought that was great than they showed stuffed olives and other little tiny things like that all stuffed. I don't know who it was, agian I was kids, I am 33 now, so imagine how long ago that was. I don't know who it was that I saw doing that but maybe someone like the great Julia Childs or someone like that before the Food Network and all those tv cooking shows were on, we only had the true chef on tv.
